Stoke City midfielder Michael Tonge is interesting Rangers.

The Sunday Herald says Rangers manager Walter Smith has been offered the former England Under-21 player on a season-long loan after Tonge failed to make an impact following his £2m transfer from Sheffield United two years ago.

Tonge scored both goals as United shocked Liverpool in the League Cup in 2003, but made just 10 appearances in the Barclays Premier League after joining Stoke. The 27-year-old was loaned to Championship clubs Preston North End and Derby County last season.

A Rangers insider said: “The club have been offered his services and it is something Walter Smith is looking at seriously as he needs wide players who can make things happen in the final third.”
