Lescott deal to Rangers off

By August 19, 2016No Comments

Jolson Lescott’s move to Rangers is off.

Reports, as yet unconfirmed, suggest the former England International has failed a medical in Glasgow.

Lescott discussed the move with Rangers boss Mark Warburton earlier this week and a two year deal looked all set to be confirmed over the weekend.

The 34-year-old was available on a free transfer with Aston Villa prepared to pay a portion of his final year’s salary. The former Everton player has also been linked with a move to David Moyes’ Sunderland.

Warburton could now turn to Philippe Senderos in his search for a fourth centre-back. The 31-year-old former Arsenal defender is a free agent and has been training with the club this week.

Rangers are still on course to sign Preston striker Joe Garner in a £1.5million deal, but it is unlikely to be completed before Saturday’s Ladbrokes Premiership clash with Motherwell.
