Rangers boss Gerrard denies interest in signing Olivier Giroud

Steven Gerrard has laughed off reports linking Rangers with a move for French World Cup winner Olivier Giroud.

French newspaper L’Equipe claimed the Ibrox boss was keen on the Chelsea star and had already made contact with the 33-year-old over a potential deal.

Giroud’s Stamford Bridge contract expires next summer and he has made just seven appearances for Frank Lampard’s side this season.

But it does not appear that Giroud will be swapping the blues of London for the Light Blues of Glasgow after Gerrard admitted he knew nothing about the story suggesting he was weighing up a swoop for the former Arsenal frontman.

He said: “We are getting linked with some good players. I don’t know anything about it, to be honest.

“If someone knows something about it, give them my number. That’s the first I’ve heard of it.

“He’s a good player, though.”
