Barry Ferguson took a step nearer becoming a Birmingham City player today when a £1 million bid was accepted by the Ibrox outfit.

Ferguson, 31, will discuss terms with the Premier League club managed by his former Rangers and Scotland manager Alex McLeish.

Ferguson last played in the top flight of English football some four-and-half years ago when he had a spell with Blackburn Rovers.

And if the midfielder leaves Rangers, he will follow Brahim Hemdani, Christian Dailly and Graeme Smith out the Ibrox door this summer.
