Rangers midfielder makes surprising admission about Steven Gerrard


Greg Docherty has admitted unlike
Josh Windass and James Tavernier, to name just two, that he has not yet
personally spoken with new manager Steven Gerrard about his future at Ibrox and
the role he can play.

Much has been made in recent
weeks of players the manager has made specific headway with regards to
one-on-one counselling and expressing plans for their future at Rangers, but it
seems, as yet, that the January signing from Hamilton is not one of them.
He said:

“Not personally (he hasn’t spoken
to me), I think if I could play a role I think I would bring a lot of energy to
midfield and get about the park. From the way they want to play, from what they’ve
said so far, I’ve got a good feeling and it could suit me.”
He went onto discuss aggression
again and that aggression is a key tenet coming out of the training camp in Spain, which is
a huge change from the spineless nonsense we’ve witnessed too much of late.
However, his admission that he
and Gerrard are yet to have a one on one is slightly surprising – we do hope
the new manager sees Docherty as a useful and important part of the team – we believe
he has a huge amount to offer and we loved what we saw of him last season.
We are well aware a lot of fans
have no time for him all of a sudden, but we don’t share that, and we support
all the players with a blank slate, not just our ‘personal favourites’.
If Docherty is good enough, and
we feel he is, he will surely play a role.
But that’s down to Stevie Ger.


  1. Young Docherty is really good player and given the chance will show he's got what it takes to succeed at Rangers . He's young enough and has the engine for SPFL and it's pressures . Steven Gerrard will see that in him for sure

  2. He has to stay, the lad is a grafter. An honest guy, unlike frauds like Windass and Halliday.
    It wouldn't surprise me that Murty is egging Gerrard to keep all the crap players, just to keep us weak to let his team win the league again.
    Docherty must stay!

  3. I'd be amazed if the manager hasn't had a word with this lad. He is a quality player and exactly the sort of young lad I'd expect Stevie G to get the best out of. I'm wondering if Stevie doesn't see him as big enough. I could understand that. What we need is a bunch of Yaya Toure types – big strong muscular types who will boot Broonie into row Z. No more being pushed around. That said why is he bothering with Windass? We need more players over 6 foot and less midgets. Apologies to any midgets reading this – no offence intended. I am 5'7.

  4. Hope He Stays!
    Hope He Stays with us The Rest of His career!
    Love Him as a Player 😁⚽💙

    Enormous Potential
    …Future Scotland International
    …Future Rangers Captain

    And like has been mentioned He is a Grafter! 👊
