RANGERS has been linked with veteran centre-back James Collins, who has been released by West Ham.

The 34-year-old stopper is on the look-out for a new club after his six years and 214 appearances at Upton Park came to an end.

Ibrox boss Steven Gerrard is in the market for a new centre-half to plug the leaks in a defence that conceded 50 goals in the Premiership last season.

A move for former Kop star Martin Skrtel is dead in the water due to the wage demands and the fee it would cost to lure him from Turkish outfit Fenerbahce.

It’s been a busy summer already for Gerrard in the transfer market after sealing deals for Allan McGregor, Scott Arfield and Jamie Murphy.
