Report - Top flight clubs circle for Rangers flop keen to stay in Scotland

Matt Polster’s Rangers career has not quite hit the heights that he or the club will have been hoping for.

The 26-year-old American has struggled to make an impact at Ibrox, and his inability to properly break into the first team under Steven Gerrard has led to some speculation over where is future lies beyond January.

With just five appearances to his name, the utility man, who generally operates as a midfield anchor, has failed to displace the likes of Ryan Jack and Steven Davis from the centre of the park, and as a result, finds himself well and truly on the periphery in Glasgow.

But according to a report from the Daily Record, the American is keen to stay in Scotland for a while longer instead of returning to the United States with his tail between his legs.

It is understood that should he be forced to quit Rangers this month, he will seek to find another team in the Scottish Premiership to take him on, despite interest from several MLS clubs.

Thankfully for Polster, the report also states that there are at least three Scottish Premiership sides who would be willing to give him another chance to prove himself north of the border.

And if that is the case then the Gers should let him go.

At this stage, after playing a full 90 minutes on just two occasions in a Light Blue shirt, as per Transfermarkt, it’s fairly obvious that he’s never going to be an integral part of Steven Gerrard’s plans at Ibrox, despite being given a two-and-a-half year deal just 12 months ago.

Move him on, bring in a fee if you can, and put the whole thing down to experience.
