And they will be hoping the potential of Championship football at Fratton Park next season could tempt the winger on a summer move to the south coast.

Although Steven Gerrard’s Gers are believed to be leading the race for Hastie’s signature.

Rangers pulled out of talks with the 20-year-old after he stalled on a pre-contract agreement earlier this season.

But now Express Sport are reporting that the Scottish side have renewed their interest.

The Scotland under-21 international has been a revelation in the second half of the SPL season.

Hastie has netted seven times in 13 Motherwell appearances since January, having returned from a loan spell at Alloa.

The 20-year-old also spent a season-long stint with Scottish League One outfit Airdrieonians last term, featuring 33 times and scoring three goals.
