Former Derby County midfielder John Eustace is in Glasgow today to hold talks with new Rangers boss Mark Warburton.

Eustace, 35, has been earmarked by Warburton as a potential player to lead the Light Blues next season as Rangers attempt to win promotion to the Scottish Premiership.

On Monday, Warburton described Eustace, who has a wealth of experience in the English Championship, as a “great role model” and “ultra professional”.

And now Eustace has flown into Glasgow for discussions with the former Brentford boss about a possible move to Ibrox, though, the midfielder dismissed suggestions he could sign on Tuesday.

“No, I’m just here to meet the manager and see what it is all about,” he told Sky Sports News.

“Mark has said it would be an unbelievable place and a very exciting time over the next few years. It’s exciting it’s one of the biggest clubs in Europe and I’m sure it will be good fun.

“We haven’t discussed the captaincy or the length of the deal at the moment. I’m just here to see what it is all about.”

Eustace has been sidelined since January after undergoing an operation on his knee. The midfielder was released by Derby after a two-year spell but is hopeful of being ready in time for the new campaign.

“I’m still a few weeks off but I’ve just started light running and hopefully I’ll be ready for the new season.”

Earlier on Tuesday the club confirmed they’ve completed a deal to sign former Hearts defender Danny Wilson on a three-year deal to become Warburton’s first summer signing.
