Steven Gerrard's Rangers Interested In Signing Former Manchester United Player
It appears Steven Gerrard is eyeing up a former Manchester United player this January transfer window.
The Rangers boss has secured the services of Jermain Defoe from Bournemouth on an 18-month loan deal as well as Steve Davis, and he's on the hunt for more additions.
Steven Gerrard is believed to be keen on reinforcing his midfield with reports suggesting he's interested in signing Ravel Morrison via Italian outlet Calciomercato.
Ravel Morrison, who's still only 25, is officially under contract at Lazio. But he's yet to play this season after failing to be registered in the league.
His future clearly lies away from Italy with the ex-United academy product enjoying a loan spell in Mexico, last season.
What's more, he's already started to follow Rangers FC and a few of their players on social media.

Morrison is looking to resurrect his career following stints across the Premier League and Championship.
He moved to West Ham United from Old Trafford in 2012, and played 16 top flight games in the 2013/14 campaign. Though it didn't work out as he dropped down a tier.
He plied his trade at Birmingham City, Queens Park Rangers and Cardiff City before moving abroad.
The Englishman was tipped for a bright, bright future by none other than Sir Alex Ferguson.
"I was at [United] when he was there," Rio Ferdinand said about the precocious talent.
"Probably the most gifted, the most naturally gifted young kid I've ever seen.
"Sir Alex Ferguson, I remember, he called me and Wazza [Wayne Rooney] over one day and said: 'look at this kid, he's better than you, Rooney when you were a kid, he's better than you, Rio, better than Ryan Giggs when you were kids. This is the best kid you will ever see.'"
Will Morrison return to these shores by heading to Rangers? Watch this space.
