Rangers defender Ian Murray is desperate to see his former Hibernian team-mate Scott Brown at Ibrox.
Hibs play Rangers at Easter Road on Saturday, but Scott Brown will have to sit the game out after picking up a suspension.
And Murray, who left Hibs in 2005, feels Brown's absence is a major boost for Walter Smith's men.
"He's got bundles of energy and his technique is very good," he said.
"He is one of those players who, even if he isn't playing to his usual standard, will always be a nuisance.
"You always know he is on the park. He is suspended and that's a blessing for us."
Brown has been linked with moves to Celtic and a number Premiership sides, but Murray is keen to persuade the player to join him and fellow ex-Hibs man Kevin Thomson at Rangers.
"He can play at a high level - everybody knows that. He's a good player and there's a lot of interest in him at the moment.
"There are so many options for him at the moment. Hibs will be looking for a decent amount of money for him.
"Some big clubs have been linked with him, so he has good options.
"I'm not surprised he is attracting interest, but maybe he will be surprised himself by the amount of clubs interested.
"He has to decide whether he wants to move away or stay in Scotland - so I might have a wee word with him if I see him."
