Rangers will reignite their pursuit of Millwall defender Jake Cooper in January, according to the Express.

Steven Gerrard’s side tried to sign the highly-rated centre-back over the summer but were blocked by the Lions in their attempts to.

However, the Scottish Premier League giants are set to move back in for Cooper next month as they look to bolster their defence ahead of a potential title charge.

The 23-year-old started his career at Reading and rose through the youth ranks at the Madejski Stadium. He went onto play 56 times for the Royals’ first-team.

Cooper was loaned out to Millwall in January 2017 and spent the latter part of the 2016/17 season with the Lions. He helped them win the League One Play-Offs under Neil Harris and earned himself a permanent move to the Den last summer.

He is a key player for the Lions and they will not want to lose him in January. Cooper has played 21 games in all competitions for Harris’ side in this campaign and will pivotal in their chances of staying in the second tier.

Millwall will not want to lose him with Rangers ready to pounce again. Gerrard delved into the English Leagues in the summer to sign players such as Allan McGregor from Hull City, Connor Goldson from Brighton and Hove Albion and Scott Arfield from Burnley. Could Cooper be the next to make the move up the border?
