Both Graeme Murty’s Rangers and Brendan Rodgers’s side both have defensive issues, and one should not be surprised seeing the two club try to address that particular area in the summer transfer window.
One player they could both sign this summer is Motherwell’s Cedric Kipre, who has been an hit for his side so far this season.
The 21-year-old has registered 32 appearances in the Scottish Premiership this season, providing four assists in the process, according to Transfermkt.com.
The Ivory Coast Under-23 international defender has proved to be a success in the Scottish top flight, and the Gers and the Hoops would be wise to keep tabs on him.
Motherwell manager Stephen Robinson has suggested, as quoted by The Scottish Sun, that the club could sell Kipre at the right price.
Robinson told The Scottish Sun about Kipre:
“I’m not actively looking to sell him. It’s the nature of the game when you are talking about talented young players.
“But he won’t go for a small amount of money. We have him on a long contract and he’ll only go for what I value him at.”
Robinson’s comments should entice Rangers and Celtic to at least test the water and see if they can secure the services of Kipre in the summer transfer window – he would prove to be a smart investment in the long run.
