Ok, it’s time, and yes, we’re looking at that, and yes, it’s Eden Hazard for Rangers. We touched on this topic a few months ago, an ironic look at the Belgian and his chances of joining Rangers..

As most fans will know, the past 48 hours have seen a ‘crazy’ rumor that the former Real Madrid and Chelsea winger was set to become a Rangers player, in a rather unsubstantiated story than even some credible websites , like Ibrox Noise, actually took it a bit seriously.

With a hint of sparkle in the eye, might we add.

But let’s take off our cynical glasses for a second here, let’s not joke that Eden Hazard at Rangers wouldn’t be the biggest signing the Scottish top flight has ever seen.

It would be bigger than Gazza, Laudrup, Barton, Keane over there (either one) and Ramsey combined – that would be a really ridiculous name to get into Scottish football.

And of course we all know his stock is at rock bottom right now, and there are rumors that London giants Crystal Palace are going to go after him, but aside from the Premier League (itself a real carrot), they can’t offer him. Europe or the massive crowds a Premier League top 6 team can offer. Indeed, only City, Arsenal, Newcastle and Man Utd can actually handle crowds of over 50,000, which rules out his former home ground, Chelsea and even Liverpool. No one cares about Spurs no matter how big their stadium is.

But only two clubs in Scotland and Europe can offer such a crowd – and only one of them enjoys a good reputation in Europe.

Is there a real prospect of the 32-year-old swapping the Bernabeu for Ibrox?

Well he made his money from football, he’s a millionaire and he got 5 years of free money in Spain so it’s not like he would come to Rangers (or Palace) for the money .

But let’s be clear: if by some miracle Rangers were actually interested in this guy, well, if we can even squeeze him half a football season, you’re talking about a player who was briefly, mildly, very momentarily the the best in the world, just as he reached his peak at Chelsea and joined Real.

It’s a joke – we can’t compete with Palace or even any PL side for wages, but if Hazard actually wants serious football again and continental opponents, as opposed to the Crystals who are beckoning him on the pitch against Stoke every two weeks, so Rangers aren’t. It’s not ridiculous.

He’s been a free agent since June and is considering his next move. He is said to have turned down up to 10 clubs already – unlike Alfredo Morelos, he has important offers which he has refused.

Are the Rangers interested?

Well, Scott Wright needs a little competition…
