Rangers reportedly challenge Brighton in the race for 28-year-old Scottish defender

According to reports, Scottish Premier League club Rangers are set to battle newly promoted English Premiership outfit Brighton and Hove Albion for the signature of Fulham defender Kevin McDonald.

Brighton boss Chris Hughton is reportedly a fan of the Scotland international and is prepared to offer Fulham £2 million for his services.

The 28-year-old McDonald was ever present for Fulham this past season making 48 appearances in all competitions and scoring three goals as well as recording four assists in the process.

Rangers however will try to entice the player into joining them, nine years after he left Scottish club Dundee to join to begin life in England with Burnley.

Though Rangers may try, the likelihood is that McDonald will feel that now is the right time to move up to the Premier League.

Since Brighton will offer him the chance to play in the English top flight, they will be favorites to complete his signing.
