BY KEITH JACKSON 06:00, 11 MAY 2018UPDATED00:30, 11 MAY 2018 Steven Gerrard is weighing up an attempt to hijack John McGinn’s summer move across the border. Record Sport understands Gerrard has been alerted to McGinn’s availability by director of football Mark Allen and head of scouting Andy Scoulding - both of whom have been tracking the 23-year-old’s situation for months. In fact, the player and his representatives were made aware of Rangers’ interest before Gerrard was officially appointed as the new man in charge last Friday.

And the player’s price could spiral if a number of potential bidders follow up their interest with firm cash offers. Although most of McGinn’s potential suitors are believed to be championship clubs some top flight bosses, including West Ham’s Davie Moyes, have been monitoring McGinn’s progression since the start of the season. But with doubts still surrounding Moyes’ future in London’s East End - despite him leading the Hammers to safety by the skin of their teeth - it remains to be seen if he will be in any position to lead the bidding.
