Blackburn Rovers FC and Wigan Athletic FC battle to sign ex-Rangers’ FC star


English duo Blackburn Rovers and Wigan Athletic both show interest in securing the services of Falkirk star Fraser Aird, according to the Daily Mail.

Aird was considered a very talented young player when he burst into the scene for Rangers back in 2012 as a teenager and the defender played a key role in helping the Gers earn consecutive promotions from the Scottish Third Division and the League One.

Following the arrival of Mark Warburton as manager of Rangers in 2015 though, Aird had seen his first team opportunities severely limited and the defender was sent out on loan to his native Canada with Major League Soccer side Vancouver Whitecaps on loan this summer.

Aird then went on to join Falkirk on a permanent basis during the January transfer window after mutually agreeing to terminate his contract with Rangers and since moving to join the Scottish Premier League side, the 22-year-old has managed to impress once again.

Now a number of clubs are showing their interest in signing Aird and according to reports from the Daily Mail, the English duo of Blackburn Rovers and Wigan Athletic are both interested in securing the services of the Canadian international during the upcoming summer transfer window.
