Kevin Nolan is in line to train with Rangers ahead of a potential move north of the border, according to claims this morning.

Rangers website Ibrox Noise report The Mail as saying that Rangers boss Mark Warburton has invited the former Newcastle midfielder to go up to Ibrox for a trial and to see if a deal can be done, with the Glasgow club awaiting Nolan’s answer.

In this modern era, there are a number of experienced football players who no longer find it essential to immediately to get another club, the likes of Kevin Nolan having made millions playing for the likes of Bolton, Newcastle and West Ham.

After agreeing with West Ham to terminate his contract in August, Nolan has been a free agent and rumours spread that he was set to join Sunderland after Sam Allardyce was appointed, though nothing ever came of that, yet.

The reports suggest that there are a number of clubs both in England and overseas who are interested in taking on Kevin Nolan, but he is taking his time before choosing what he believes is the right move.

As for Rangers, back in the day before their ‘difficulties’ it would have looked a move that ticked a lot of boxes but with their financial position, you can only assume that any deal for Kevin Nolan to play in the second tier of Scottish football, would see a big pay drop compared to what he was earning at Newcastle and West Ham.
