Rangers have made no move to sign Jack Wilshere as of yet – although former Ibrox midfielder Charlie Adam has urged his former club to ‘get the deal done’.
The 28-year-old midfielder is a free agent after leaving West Ham and has been linked with a move to join his former England team-mate Steven Gerrard at the Premiership club.
Rangers manager Gerrard has spoken effusively of Wilshere in the past, insisting the then-Arsenal youngster had ‘the potential to become one of the best in the world’ when he was joining up with him on international duty seven years ago.

And, speaking on PLZ Soccer, former Liverpool midfielder Adam was adamant the two should be reunited once again, saying: ‘There’s always a possibility Wilshere could come to Rangers.
‘Will it be a pay as you play? Because he will still be getting paid from West Ham, and he might just think I might go up there and play until the end of this season.
‘I could see it happening because Steven’s got that presence so it wouldn’t surprise me.
‘When a quality player like Wilshere becomes available you’ve got to grab the bull by the horns and try and get that deal done.’

However, former Celtic striker Carlton Cole has sounded a note of warning for Wilshere about a potential move to Glasgow, telling talkSPORT: ‘It would be a bit too cold for him. Plus you have artificial pitches up there.
‘When I played up there I had knee problems but some of the grounds had astroturf and I couldn’t play.
‘As soon as I play on it or train on it I’m out for a week with swollen knees so it wouldn’t be great for him.’
