Rangers transfer news: Steven Gerrard confirms interest in Motherwell’s Jake Hastie with deal reportedly close
Steven Gerrard has confirmed Rangers’ interest in Motherwell youngster Jake Hastie.
It has been widely reported in the Scottish media that the 20-year-old is on the verge of signing a four-year deal with the Ibrox club.
The midfielder has impressed with Motherwell since making his first Scottish Premiership start in January, going on to score seven goals in 14 games in all competitions.
He is out of contract with the club this summer and looks set to be heading to Ibrox to play under Gerrard.
The Rangers manager said: “It’s no secret that there’s an interest there but until we get it complete, there’s nothing really to say on it.
“I’m not going to sit here and deny it because obviously it’s out there that there is an interest.”

Motherwell manager Steve Robinson admitted in his own press conference that Hastie will likely move away from Fir Park this summer.
Robinson said Hastie ‘won’t sign for me’ as the youngster nears the end of his contract.
“I believe Jake’s signed for another club,” he added. “It’s not for me to announce.”
Rangers will have to pay Motherwell a development fee should they sign Hastie on a free transfer this summer.
