RANGERS boss Steven Gerrard is going flat-out in his effort to beat Celtic gaffer Neil Lennon is the transfer battle for Stoke City striker Tyrese Campbell.

Both Glasgow clubs are interested in the 20-year-old frontman who is out of contract at the end of the season.

The Ibrox and Parkhead clubs can utilise cross-border transfer rules for the youngster and land him for a fee of around £400,000.

The champions are reported to have watched the attacker drew a blank in his side’s goalless draw against Millwall at the Potteries at the weekend.

A host of clubs have been looking at the player, whose dad Kevin played for Arsenal, and among them are Premier League outfits Wolves, Crystal Palace and Bournemouth.

However, a report in Football Insider insists Gerrard has already offered Campbell a long-term contract to secure his future at Gers.

The powerful raider, who has scored four goals in the Championship this season, is wanted by Stoke’s new boss Michael O’Neill, but so far he has resisted agreeing an extension.
