Speaking to Record Sport, agent Carol Ksonto said:“Financially there is no chance of Martin going to Rangers. He couldn’t get half of his wages in Glasgow. It would be more like a third. Yes, he has great respect for Steven Gerrard but there’s no point in having a discussion because financially it’s just not realistic.”
Gerrard recruited the services of Connor Goldson, Nikola Katic and Gareth McAuley for the central defence during the summer and they have managed to perform credibly thereafter with just 12 goals conceded from the opening 14 matches. Despite this, there remains a slender weakness with the defensive strength when compared to Celtic and that is something which Gerrard may need to resolve to end the Hoops’ dominance in the Scottish Premiership.
