Euro boss confirms Rangers interest as striker opens Ibrox door

Randers sporting director Soren Pedersen has claimed Rangers are interested in striker Stephen Odey – with the striker now confirming he is open to a move to Ibrox.

A few weeks ago, Pedersen claimed that both Rangers and Old Firm rivals Celtic had expressed an interest in the Nigerian striker.

That comes after the three-time Super Eagles forward, 24, scored 13 goals in all competitions last season.

However, by the time Pedersen cooled each proposal, there was an offer on the table for Stephen Odey from both Glasgow sides.

“It’s certainly not that specific that I have an offer,” said Pedersen [Daily Record].

“This can easily happen. There are many clubs who have shown an interest in him because he is a good player. But there is nothing concrete.

“We’re happy with him and it’s not something we’re saying should be sold in this window.

“He has great sporting value. So if we say yes to something, it has to be both the right club and the right crowd.”

Stephen Odey open to Rangers move

Now Stephen Odey has opened the door for a move, claiming he’s ready to leave Randers if the right club knocks.

The forward was also direct on the reported interest from Rangers and Celtic.

“If the right club come along, Randers has no choice but to let me go,” said Stephen Odey [Amtsavisen].

“But I’m happy to be at Randers and that doesn’t change the fact that there are some rumors about other clubs.

“For me it’s about preparing for the new season with the team I’m part of.

“Rumors can spread quickly, but I don’t want to let that distract me.

“My agent takes care of everything that can arise in connection with the transfer market. I try not to think about it.

“It’s important for me as a player to focus on preparing for the new season.

“These are big clubs and it’s clear I want to be open to that.

“But I’m in Randers and that’s the only thing that matters at the moment.

“As long as I haven’t been presented with anything specific, as I said, I won’t let that deter me.”

It remains unclear if Rangers or Celtic will pique interest in the Stephen Odey company with an offer, but it’s clear the Nigerian would be open to a move if that were the case.

But Rangers have moved to fill the striker void left by Cedric Itten as Croatia international Antonio Colak becomes the club’s new No9.

Another high-profile Rangers star could also be coming out of Ibrox soon.
