Rangers have looked at the possibility of signing Bolton Wanderers defender Mark Beevers, according to the Express.

The 29-year-old is out of contract with the Trotters in the summer.

Scouts from Rangers were present at Bolton’s recent fixture against Millwall at the Den, a game in which Beevers scored for the visitors. The Scottish Premier League side are also believed to be interested in the Lions’ Jake Cooper, as reported by The72 earlier today, as they look to bolster their defence in January.

Beevers was linked with Rangers over the summer. He is a key player for Bolton and has played 13 games for them in the Championship so far this season.

He has bags of experience and is a decent option for Steven Gerrard’s side. The Barnsley-born defender started his career at Sheffield Wednesday and rose through the youth ranks of the South Yorkshire club.

Beevers went onto play a total of 161 games for the Owls, as well as enjoying loan spells at MK Dons and Millwall respectively. He then joined Millwall on a permanent deal in 2012 and played 150 games for the London side.

He then moved back to the North of England when Bolton snapped him up in July 2016. Beevers played a huge part in the Trotters’ promotion from League One under Phil Parkinson in 2017, forming a great partnership with David Wheater at the back and also chipping in with an impressive seven goals.

Beevers helped Bolton stay up in the Championship last season, but with his side struggling in this campaign, could he be set for a move away in the near future?
