Former Dundee United hero Lee Wilkie is not surprised to see goalkeeper Benjamin Siegrist linked with a move to Rangers, his Scottish Premiership rivals, speaking to the Courier.

February’s high-level clash between Tangerines and Gers could be a rather intriguing sight.

Because, technically speaking, Siegrist could be a Rangers player by the time league leaders Giovanni van Bronckhorst arrive in Tannadice next month.

The 29-year-old goalie will be a free agent this summer.

And, according to the Daily Record, the Rangers are at the head of a group of clubs looking to sign Siegrist in a pre-contractual deal, which will see the former Aston Villa youngster move to Glasgow for absolutely nothing at all. end of the current campaign.

Will Benjamin Siegrist replace Rangers’ Allan McGregor?

“The biggest loss of all would, of course, be Benjamin Siegrist,” says Wilkie, who donned the orange and black from 2006 to 2010.

“News has surfaced this week of Rangers’ interest in the Swiss goalkeeper. And it’s no surprise to me that other clubs are taking a serious interest in it. It won’t be a surprise for United either.

“It will be disappointing for the Tangerines to lose such a consistent player to Siegrist. But overall I think United have done well to keep him that long.

Wilkie a raison.

Siegrist’s agent admitted about 12 months ago that another Old Firm giant – Neil Lennon’s Celtic – had shown an interest.

After three largely excellent years in Dundee, Siegrist certainly deserved the chance to prove that he can perform on a bigger stage.

“Throughout his time at Tannadice the goalkeeper has been nothing but professional,” adds Wilkie of a man who has also been linked with Premier League Southampton.

“He will have already had interests elsewhere but that did not affect him on the pitch. And I would expect this to continue, even if he knows his future is elsewhere.

“Even if he signs for the Gers, I would expect him to relish a chance to go to Ibrox and put on a show later in the season. ”

Rangers have also been linked with St Johnstone’s Zander Clark and West Brom England international Sam Johnstone as they step up their search for a potential Allan McGregor replacement.
