Ian Durrant: Thinks Steven Smith would be a useful addition for Rangers

The full-back came through the Gers' academy system before leaving for Norwich City in 2010.

He struggled to make an impact at Carrow Road and ended up taking his career in a different direction by linking up with MLS outfit the Portland Timbers.

Smith left the American side in December and has spent time training with Rangers in an effort to keep his fitness levels up.

Gers boss Ally McCoist is hoping to bring fresh faces into his ranks this summer and Durrant thinks they could do a lot worse than offer a deal to Smith.

He said in the Daily Record: "Steven has been talked about but it will be down to the manager to make a final decision.

"He came in and trained during the last month of the season and he was great about the place as he knows what it's all about to play for Rangers.

"If we can get him, he would be a great addition."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
