Houston Dynamo head coach Dom Kinnear admits he and the MLS club are keen to hold talks with Rangers ace Sone Aluko.

The English-born Nigerian winger could be a victim of the Glasgow clubs uncertainty with a decision on which league they will be playing in to come on July 4.

Scottish manager Kinnear received a recommendation from former Scotland international Mo Johnston, who has been head coach of New York Red Bull and Toronto FC in the past, and admits the Texan club are keen to snap up the former Birmingham City, Blackpool and Aberdeen man.

“I’m pretty good friends with Mo Johnston and he brought up Sone’s name to me. I had a close look at Sone and was impressed. If he is free and available, we’d really like to bring him to Houston,” Kinnear told SunSport.

“Sone is great on the ball. He can take players on and has the ability to change games.

“There will be other clubs looking at Sone but we’ll be professional and wait until we get word he’s free.”

He added: “We try to play good football and I think Sone would really suit our style. He has the ability to play on the wing and inside and that’s impressive.

“When a guy can stand out in Old Firm games, I think he could do it in any league in the world.”

Apart from the Dynamo, Aluko is also attracting attention from clubs in England as well as Houston’s MLS rivals New England Revolution.
