Millwall have insisted that Jake Cooper is not for sale amid strong links with Glasgow Rangers, according to The Scottish Sun.
New Rangers manager Steven Gerrard was hoping to sign Cooper as a £1m replacement for Parma bound Bruno Alves, but he has been told not to waste his time.
Millwall are intent on keeping the 23-year-old, who formed a solid partnership in central defence with Shaun Hutchinson last year to help his side reach 7th place in the Championship.
The former England under-20 international joined Millwall on a permanent deal from Reading last summer after impressing on loan in League One and he was a key performer for Neil Harris’ men.
Rangers were hoping to sign the towering centre-half to strengthen their options at the back but Harris has sent a defiant message to potential suitors, insisting: “None of our players are for sale this summer.”
The Lions are hoping to launch another bid for the play-offs next season and want to keep Cooper for the upcoming campaign.
This is good business by Millwall – they need to keep their star players.
Millwall’s strength last year was keeping a tight-knit squad who knew their roles inside and out in Harris’ system.
Cooper was an integral part of that and he is worth way more than £1m to the Lions.
