Rangers are braced for late-window interest in James Tavernier in a transfer triangle with Newcastle United and Aston Villa, Football Insider understands.

Newcastle are in the market for a new right-back and have set their sights on experienced Villa man Ahmed Elmohamady, signed twice in the past by Steve Bruce.

The Magpies have also submitted an offer for Swedish right-back Emil Krafth but are ready to turn their attention to Tavernier if they do not get the pair.
