Wigan defender Andy Webster is having a medical at Rangers.
Wigan defender Andy Webster is having a medical at Rangers ahead of a loan move to Ibrox.
Webster has failed to settle at Wigan since his protracted switch from Hearts earlier this season.
The 24-year-old has made just four starts for Wigan and he has recently dropped down the pecking order at The JJB Stadium.
Latics boss Paul Jewell is willing to loan out Webster having brought in Andreas Granqvist to bolster his defence this month.
Webster is expected to sign a loan deal until the end of the season with a view to a permanent move.
Rangers caretaker manager Ian Durrant believes Webster will be a good addition to the squad if he successfully comes through his medical.
"He is going through a medical just now and if it all goes through he will be a great acquisition for the club."
The Scottish international could make his debut in this weekend's Scottish Cup tie with Dunfermline, live on Sky Sports 1.
