Chhetri & Jeje set for Glasgow Rangers trials

The Indian international strike duo of Sunil Chhetri and Jeje Lalpekhlua could be on their way to Scottish Premier League giants Glasgow Rangers FC later this month for a trial, which if successful could see both or one of them sign for the Scottish club in the winter transfer window.

Talks about the trial have been ongoing for quite a while and players agent Yogesh Joshee, who manages both players, was able to convince Rangers to offer the duo a trial with Glasgow Rangers looking for new talent and also understanding the lucrative Indian market.

Sunil Chhetri currently plays for Mohun Bagan AC, while Jeje Lalpekhlua is contracted to Pune FC. If the two I-League clubs will release their players during the season will have to be seen. The trial could take place between India's friendlies against Malaysia in the coming days and the game against Zambia later this month.

For Sunil Chhetri it wouldn't be the first trial abroad. In 2010 he was contracted a few months with MLS side Kansas City Wizards, before that he had been on trial with English Championship side Coventry City while also having been linked in the past with Queens Park Ranger FC and Celtic Glasgow but he couldn't sign for them for different reasons.

For talented Jeje it would be the first foreign trial experience.
