GLASGOW Rangers FC have ex-Huddersfield Town midfielder Scott Arfield on their radar.
Sources close to Glasgow Rangers FC suggest the 24-year-old former Falkirk man , released at the end of last season, is wanted by Scotland’s fallen giants.
Rangers FC boss Ally McCoist is building for a Scottish Second Division title challenge after leading the Gers to last season’s Division III title.
The financial meltdown of the Glasgow club – Scottish champions a record 54 times – meant they were dumped in the basement division this time last year.
They began their attempted climb back to the top by winning the championship by a 24-point margin from Peterhead.
Arfield, a former Scotland Under 21 and B international, played in the Scottish Premier League with Falkirk before his three seasons at Town.
Signed for £400,000 when Lee Clark was in charge, he played 119 times, scoring nine goals, but made only 13 starts, and 13 substitute appearances last season.
He was released alongside utility man Tom Clarke, who has joined Preston, and striker Alan Lee, who is being linked with Crawley, Notts County and Tranmere.
Coventry, bossed by Arfield’s former Falkirk manager Steven Pressley, are also said to like the Livingston-born player.
While Rangers are in Division II, they still offer the chance of playing in front of regular 45,000-plus attendances.
Already recruited for next season are strikers Jon Daly, from Dundee United, and Nicky Clark, from Queen of the South, while Honduras international midfielder Arnold Peralta will join subject to a work permit being granted.
Dundee United have signed Queen’s Park winger Aidan Connolly, who was said to be interesting Town.
