Rangers are keen on signing Bournemouth duo Nnamdi Ofoborh and Jack Simpson, according to reports in the UK.
The pair will be available on free transfers in the summer when their contracts expire and, although the club won’t have to pay a fee for either player, fans on Twitter have had a mixed reaction to the club’s interest in the pair:

Simpson is 24 but, despite being with Bournemouth for the whole of his professional career, he has only played 35 games as he has mostly been an unused substitute over the past four years. Bizarrely then, despite his age, he is a relatively inexperienced player.
Ofoborh is younger at 21 and the former Nigerian Under 20 international is equally capable playing as both a centre-back and central midfielder. He is untested at the highest level, though, with most of his first-team experience coming during a loan spell with Wycombe Wanderers in League One last season.
