Now that Rangers have been senstionally knocked out of the Champions League, there is a strong rumour circulating in Glasgow that Liverpool are set to sign Rangers star defender Carlos Cuellar.

Rangers have been hit very hard financially by their defeat and it looks like they now have to seriously reconsider their budget.

Many Scotsman are questioning whether Cuellar was really still too injured to take part in the second leg of the Champions League Qualifier, or whether Walter Smith was holding him back so that he didn’t become cup-tied during the negotiations with Liverpool.

It is also considered fishy that Rangers are expected to have a £12million hole in their finances and the figure being mooted as the transfer fee is also £12million. (

This source seems to suggest this is almost a done deal but will Liverpool really sign the Rangers centre back? With Agger back and Skrtel becoming something of an Anfield legend (albeit apparently currently with a slight knock at present) and Carragher also around, where will Cuellar fit in to the equation? The Rangers man is a very good player who really has become a favourite at Ibrox after a very impressive season last term. The Gers fans will be loathed to lose him but if they need to raise quick cash then this could be the only way to do so. Do Liverpool fans think Rafa will really make this signing and do they even need to?
