Rangers Super Fans react to Gary Cahill transfer speculation

This is part of a regular series from our panel of Rangers Super Fans. Each week, our Super Fans will deliver their verdicts on the biggest talking points and news stories around Ibrox. You can join in the discussion on our Rangers Insider Facebook page.


Rangers fans are largely against the idea of signing veteran defender Gary Cahill this summer after he was linked with a move to Ibrox.

According to The Sun, the Gers could offer the 35-year-old a big-money contract worth £35,000-a-week.

Cahill is a free agent after his contract at Crystal Palace expired at the end of last season but is someone with great experience.

The former Chelsea, Bolton and Aston Villa defender has 61 caps for England as well as 394 Premier League appearances to his name.

Cahill has also won the Premier League twice, the FA Cup twice, the Champions League once and the Europa League twice.

However, despite his glittering CV and availability, some members of our Rangers Super Fans panel are against the idea of signing the defender.

Some are though, with one saying he’ll be a “good replacement for [Connor] Goldson” if he leaves Ibrox this summer.

Here is what they had to say:

Steven Gerrard already has a number of centre-back options at his disposal ahead of next season so you would imagine that Cahill would only be signed if anyone is moved on.

However, even if Goldson is someone who’s sold this summer, would Gerrard really replace the club’s best centre-back with someone who has zero resale value, is past his best and might not even be a guaranteed starter for us?

Filip Helander, Nikola Katic and Leon Balogun, when fit and available, are all able to start for the Gers.

Behind them, we have George Edmundson and Jack Simpson.

Cahill would be a bit of a waste of money and we’d much rather see Gerrard sign someone who’s value is only going to increase at Ibrox.
