James Tavernier is a transfer target for Newcastle United - according to a report.
Steve Bruce is looking to win supporters over after his shock Magpies appointment and wants to make the Rangers skipper his first summer signing.
Tavernier is a key man for Steven Gerrard but is now being chased by the club where he started his career as a trainee, report the Daily Mail.
The 27-year-old enjoyed his finest season at Ibrox last term after scoring 17 goals and providing 20 assists in all competitions.
And Bruce and the Newcastle board would need to come up with a sizeable bid for a player who is under contract until 2022.
The Englishman came through the St James Park academy and made two senior appearances before joining Wigan in 2014 after six loan spells away from Newcastle.
West Brom were desperate to land Tavernier last summer but Rangers held firm and kept their captain in Glasgow.
Meanwhile, Record Sport exclusively revealed on Saturday that Rangers are bracing themselves for a big money bid from Eintracht Frankfurt for Alfredo Morelos .
The Colombian has been watched by the Bundesliga side and they had a scout in attendance as the striker bagged a hat-trick against St Joseph's on Thursday night.
Gerrard spoke last month about his battle to keep his his two star players at Ibrox this summer.
He said: “There’s been a lot of speculation about Tav and Alfredo and I’m not surprised by it.
“They both had very good seasons.
“But there hasn’t been a single bid for either.
“There hasn’t been an offer for any of my players. Do I have to sell to bring in? I don’t think so.
“I’d be quite happy to go with what we’ve got if we can get another centre back in.
“Am I confident of keeping Tav and Alfredo? It’s not a question I need to answer right now because there are no offers.”
