Rangers have 'entered the race' to sign Charlton ace Alfie Doughty.

The left-sided player has been chased by Celtic all summer with the Hoops preparing a January swoop to land the player on a pre-contract.

But now it is being reported that Gers are keeping a close eye on the winger with a move to join the hunt.

The Athletic claim the Ibrox outfit could raid the Addicks again having previously sealed a deal for Joe Aribo.

Doughty, at this time, is nursing a hamstring injury. But his current deal expires this summer.

We led on this story earlier this year, revealing exclusively that Celtic's second bid for the player had been kicked out by Charlton.
