West Ham youngster Reece Burke is reportedly a target for Steven Gerrard’s Rangers, according to The Mirror.

Earlier in the week, Rangers made the first signing of the Gerrard era, bringing in Scott Arfield from Burnley.

Gerrard now sees Reece Burke as another potential Rangers suitor and wants to bring the youngster to the Ibrox from his boyhood club, West Ham.

It waits to be seen whether the Hammers wish to cash in on Burke now or send him out on loan again to gain more first team experience.

However it is believed that should they make a move for Burke, Rangers would want the defender on a permanent deal.

Burke has been impressive while on loan at Championship side Bolton Wanderers, and he was an integral part of Wanderers staying up on the last day of the season.

Rodgers admits Celtic star Tierney may need to leave in the future .
Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers has admitted that while Kieran Tierney isn’t close to leaving Celtic in the immediate future, it may be hard to keep him at Parkhead long-term. Tierney has been scouted and linked as a potential signing by plenty of top clubs across the continent, especially among the top clubs in the Premier League, and recent reports have linked Atletico Madrid with a move for the Scotland international. Rodgers, responding to that particular story, says that the 20-year old won’t be on the move imminently, but expressed that with large sums of money likely to be offered elsewhere, Celtic can’t expect to keep him forever. Rodgers said; “There is a dearth of good left-backs. With Kieran’s qualities and huge potential still as a young player, that is always going to draw the eyes of top teams.” “Kieran has great qualities. He has a really good temperament and that is getting better in big games. That’s important. Tactically, he understands the game much better. Physically, he can cope with any league in the world. He has got stronger and faster. He is playing at a big club.” “He’s a really exceptional young guy. He’s very stable in his home life and family are Celtic mad. He doesn’t let it (transfer speculation) affect him. You see his passion and love for Celtic.
