Northern Ireland international Lee Hodson is on the brink of making up for his Euro 2016 disappointment by signing for Rangers.

The right-back didn't get onto the pitch in any of the four games that Michael O'Neill's team played in France, but despite not getting the opportunity to put himself in the shop window, Ibrox boss Mark Warburton is ready to hand the 24-year-old a contract.

Hodson is a free agent after his deal with MK Dons came to an end and he knows the Scottish Premiership after spending the second half of last season on loan at Kilmarnock.

Meanwhile, Jason Holt insists he is not fazed by the influx of midfield competition at Rangers this summer following the arrival of Joey Barton, Niko Kranjcar, Jordan Rossiter, Josh Windass and Matt Crooks.

Holt said: "For our squad I think competition is a great thing and we're all really looking forward to it."
