Rangers reportedly looking to beat Championship duo to League One-winning midfield veteran

As per Daily Star, Rangers are battling Middlesbrough and Sheffield Wednesday for the signature of Fulham midfielder Kevin McDonald.

The £1.5million-rated 29-year-old Scotland international could be on his way out of Craven Cottage this month, and the Light Blues are planning on a swoop as manager Graeme Murty wants to further boost his midfield options.

Despite bringing in Jamie Murphy from Brighton and Sean Goss from QPR on loan, Rangers reckon McDonald’s experience could prove highly valuable as they aim toward European football next term.

The former Dundee star has amassed almost 400 league games under his belt in a 13-year career that has spanned across 7 clubs.

McDonald played a huge role in helping Wolverhampton Wanderers win the League One and subsequently seal promotion in 2014, and having featured in 22 games for Fulham this term, it could be hard for the London club to let go.

Rangers need a force in deep midfield capable of protecting the defence and helping to start attack from the back.

McDonald’s defensive contributions and passing abilities make him the perfect signing for the Light Blues.
