Rangers reportedly to land ex-Celtic target and out-of-favour EPL winger in January 

As per the Daily Mail, Rangers are closing in on a deal for Brighton & Hove Albion winger Jamie Murphy with the January transfer window now open.

The 28-year-old former Motherwell forward will cost the Light Blues around £1million, but that hasn’t stopped them from registering serious interest as manager Graeme Murty looks to strengthen his squad.

Murphy was targeted by both Rangers and Celtic prior to the start of the campaign, and having fallen out of favour at Falmer Stadium, starting just a Premier League game thus far, an exit is all but guaranteed.

The Scottish winger knows a lot about the Premiership having been a hit with ‘Well where he scored 50 goals in 215 appearances for the Fir Park club before heading to Sheffield United in 2013.

Murphy’s 21 goals in 121 games for the former League One side attracted the Seagulls to him, and his wealth of experience could come handy at Ibrox.

His goalscoring record over the years is also impressive as they come, and the Light Blues can sure do with some goals as they challenge Aberdeen to the runners up spot.
