Spartak Moscow defender Martin Stranzl has declared his interest in joining Rangers.
The Ibrox club are on the look-out for a commanding stopper after conceding a series of soft goals this season and see the the 6ft 3in Austria international as the solution.
Stranzl, who would cost around £1million, is also reportedly attracting interest from Fulham, West Ham United and Everton.
He said in the Evening Times: ''I am honoured and I would be interested in any move to a club of the stature of Rangers.
''The clubs would have to talk and make an agreement, but Rangers are known to everyone and made the UEFA Cup final last season so, of course, I would be interested.
''But I want to get my future sorted out as soon as possible and hopefully this will be the case as I am desperate to play regular football again and if it was with Rangers, that would be great.''
Stranzl's agent, Thomas Boehm, added in The Herald: ''Martin has said before that he is keen to play for one of the top clubs in England and Scotland and he would be keen on Rangers.
''His goal is to play in the UK. He has had teams looking at him for many years now as he is an experienced international who has all the attributes for theBritish game.''
Stranzl is contracted to Spartak for another two and a half years and general director Valery Karpin told the Scottish Daily Express: ''If we get offers, everything will depend on conditions of agreement.''
Spartak Moscow manager Michael Laudrup offered a polite ''no comment'' when asked about Rangers' interest last night.
