MATT POLSTER is poised to quit Rangers in a £400,000 deal with MLS outfit New England Revolution.

The 27-year-old American defender is keen to return to the States to bolster his international hopes of playing for the USA in the World Cup, according to a report in The Sunday Mail.

The right-back has made just 10 first-team appearances in 18 months at Ibrox after failing to remove skipper James Tavernier.

Steven Gerrard signed him for free from Chicago Fire in January 2019 and the player still has a year to run on his contract.

Polster was expected to move on loan in January, but was thrust into action after the winter break as Tavernier underwent appendix surgery.

He started home and away wins against Ross County and a goalless draw with Aberdeen, but soon found himself back on the sidelines.

Polster was missing from the Gers squad as they returned to training last month as he received treatment for a back problem.

The full-back, who has one cap after playing against Bosnia and Herzigovina in a 2018 friendly, is hoping to attract the attention of USA head coach Gregg Berhalter with his return to his homeland.
