Should Steven Gerrard go for controversial signing?

 Article by: Richard

Steven Gerrard is demanding that his new Rangers team will be more mobile, stronger, aggressive, faster, fitter, versatile and extremely competitive. He feels that by changing the way his team play, he will be in a better position to stop Celtic’s domination and bring the glory days
back to Ibrox.

He has made a superb start to his managerial reign and has already added several quality signings to his squad. Is it possible that Hibernian’s Celtic-supporting John McGinn could be Gerrard’s next midfield target?

Rangers and other top teams, have been linked with a move for this strong, talented, aggressive, versatile and extremely competitive midfielder.

McGinn is still only 23-year-old and is in his final year of his contract with Hibs, and with an estimated transfer fee of around £3M it looks like it would be excellent business for Rangers.

It is easily feasible that you could get a good 5-year service from him, then sell him on for profit as a 28-year-old fully experienced top player, or you have the option to retain his services.

Would McGinn want to come to Celtic’s bitter rivals Rangers?

Even if John would agree to come to the light blues to develop his football career with Stevie Gerrard helping to turn him into an even better more complete midfield player, would Hibernian sell McGinn to Rangers? After the farce of Scott Allan, we doubt they would – but the Blue Pound speaks volumes.

Rangers have also been linked with Southampton’s Steven Davis, an ex-Ibrox man of course – so anyone understandably thinking we’re finished in midfield is entirely wrong.

McGinn has loads of SPL experience and could easily slot into anywhere in the new Rangers midfield. He is highly regarded for his versatile and extremely combative play and is very comfortable on the left or in any attacking or defensive midfield position.

Although there is no doubt McGinn would be an excellent signing for Rangers, do the Ibrox faithful want him playing for our club?
