According to a reliable newsportal, Rangers hope both players, who are likely to make the Eagles AFCON squad, can play against Celtic on January 2.

This will make the three players miss the Derby against their fiercest rivals.

It was gathered that Rangers are confident of successfully negotiating with the Nigeria Football Federation and Rohr for the players to report for duty after the Celtic clash.

According to the source, “Ibrox boss Steven Gerrard and sporting director Ross Wilson have an excellent working relationship with Rohr and the Nigerians.

“Top Premier League clubs in England will attempt to do likewise with African nations in a bid to keep their players a few days longer before they set off for Cameroon.”
