Breaking News ! 156178635">Preston North End midfielder Daniel Johnson would be an “excellent signing” for Rangers. That is according to former Gers defender Alan Hutton who, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, delivered his first-hand verdict on his old Aston Villa teammate joining Steven Gerrard’s squad. As revealed by Football Insider, the door has swung open for Rangers to sign the Jamaica international, 28, on a pre-contract after he snubbed a new Preston deal. The Glasgow giants have been interested in signing Johnson since the summer of 2020 and had a £2million offer turned down by the Championship side. Hutton, who trained alongside Johnson during their time at Villa together, believes his former teammate would be a very welcome addition at Ibrox.

“Obviously you know that I trained a lot with him when he was at Villa, it didn’t quite work out there, but he’s really went from strength to strength at Preston, he’s been one of their key men and I think it’s always about can you bring in players that are going to improve your squad.
“I definitely think he brings that; a wealth of experience, he can score goals, he’s strong, he’s quick, he’s good at passing – he brings everything that Gerrard would want within a midfielder.
“He is versatile, he can sit deep or play further forward, so I think that, for me, is somebody that he should definitely push forward and try and get a deal.”
