Philippe Senderos Joins Rangers on a Free Transfer

Philippe Senderos will be regarded as one of the biggest failures of Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger, who is usually exceptional when it comes to spotting talent.

The Swiss international, though, has found no shortage of interested parties even in the Premier league, as he has represented the likes of Fulham and Aston Villa in the last couple of years. Following the relegation of Villa into the Championship, it was very much expected that Senderos would also dropped down the divisions and continue his career. However, he decided to join Swiss outfit Grasshoppers on a six-month contract.

Following the end of this deal, though, he seems to have sufficiently impressed Scottish outfit Rangers so much for that he has secured a free transfer to the giant. Rangers only recently returned to the top division and were actively looking at players with a lot of experience in the top level. Senderos is someone who fits the bill extremely well after having played for the likes of Arsenal, Fulham and Aston Villa. He has joined the club on a free transfer and could make his debut in one of the biggest matches of the campaign, the old firm derby against Celtic.

The game against Celtic is regarded as one of the fiercest in the world and having a player of Senderos’ experience will only help the team. Incredibly, Rangers were extremely close on signing Manchester City defender Lescott. It was only because the England international failed to pass a medical did Senderos enter into the picture. As an experienced international who has represented the national team in more than 50 games, Senderos has signed a one-year deal with Rangers. Since the player has been out of touch with regard to the top level for the last 12 months, he may need some time to warm up and reach his best.
