Gunners legend Ray Parlour reckons Rangers should make a move for free agent Ashley Cole. He told Sky Sports’ The Debate: “I’m sure there’ll be lots of clubs interested. Stevie G is a great shout at Rangers.
“I don’t know who their left back is at the moment but he would be great for the dressing room area.
“He’s had a fantastic career and I think that he can do a job definitely for another season.
“I’m not too sure about the Premier League, I’m not sure someone would take a chance on him in the Premier League, certainly the Championship.”
Current odds on Sky Bet: 10/1
5th) WEST HAM UNITED
Some West Ham supporters think the left-back could be heading their way to ‘solve their problems with that position’.
The Hammers have developed a liking for signing full backs who are past their sell by date in recent years – see Pablo Zabaleta and Patrice Evra.
Current odds on Sky Bet: 8/1
4th) DERBY COUNTY
A reunion with ex-Chelsea teammate Frank Lampard could also be on the cards with Derby.
Speaking to the Derby Telegraph, Lampard said: “I know Ashley well. I haven’t spoken to him on it, so it’s a conversation I could easily have.
“I’m sure he could do. He’s 37, the best left-back of his generation, in my opinion, or actually many generations if you’re talking about those in an England shirt.
“So it’s certainly something that is high on my mind and I know Ashley so well that it would be an easy conversation for me to have.”
Current odds on Sky Bet: 7/1
