Glasgow giants Rangers are thought to be ready to take Norwich City defender Russell Martin on loan according to the Daily Record.

The 32-year-old Brighton born centre-back is thought to be surplus to requirements at Carrow Road as The Canaries boss Daniel Farke looks to free up funds for potential new arrivals at the club.

Rangers have long been admirers of Martin and it is thought that the Ibrox-based club could look to take the player on loan. Should The Gers make an approach for the defender, it is thought that Martin would be keen on a move to the Scottish Premiership club.

The Scotland international started his career in English non-league football with Lewes before moving to Wycombe Wanderers where he made 142 appearances and scored five goals. A spell with Peterborough United followed before Martin joined current club Norwich City on a permanent basis following a successful loan move.

Martin has contributed to The Canaries’ success over the years with the player having won three promotions with the Norfolk club. The defender has made over 300 appearances for Norwich City however he has been used on just seven occasions by the club this term.

Norwich City boss Farke offered Martin a contract extension in the summer but the player has found it difficult to impress the German coach this season.
