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

  1. That's about 4.5 million if rangers try to sign him. If it's Celtic then no higher than 2.5million.

    • If Rangers want Him …Its £10m
      If Celtic Want Him …Its £2.5m


  2. I think we have too many midfielders now. But if someone can improve us then we should go for it. Mcginn would definitely be a good addition. We need to lose players tho because I'm starting to worry we are going down the Ronny deila route by filling the squad with midfielders. We need another defender and a couple of strikers.

    • 100% agree Jimbo,we dont shop at lidl anymore,Them cunts wouldnt sell to us before so keep him🇬🇧

      LETS GO WATP 🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧

    • We dont want anything to do with the little rocket man

      LETS GO WATP 🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧

  3. Unless we are going to offload a few we already have too many midfielders. That said we could always do with securing better than we already have BUT I reckon we will see a big improvement in the boys we already this season. Besides, I'd rather have Dylan McGeouch than McGinn, I reckon he was slightly ahead of McGin last season and he's also out of contract.

  4. On July 11th 1989 didn’ Greame Souness sigh Mo Johnson and said later if they are good enought it doesn’t matter the back ground to me that still stands today now its up to Steven Gerrard.Back in 1989 I didn’t want Mo and used to sing the Mo song 😊but i’v learned alot since those days and it😆😆+it really is all about the RANGERS 🇬🇧🇬🇧

  5. Hibs would never sell to us. Not bothered about his background. I'm sure if he decided to join us he'd be committed. Part exchange maybe? Haliday , Cardoso, dorrans even. But i don't think we could offer him anything attractive enough to ignore his support of them to join us, wage wise or football wise..I'm sure he'd sign if it was the type of squad and ambition advocaat had. But not now where we're 12/1 to win the league..

  6. Personally, I don't give a rats arse about leanings or persuasions when it comes to signings…as long as they perform in a blue shirt…Neil McCann, anyone ?

  7. its just a no from me, I have no issues with us signing Catholics from other countries like Amorusso etc but no more celtic fans playing for us ever

  8. Hibs said they would never sell to a rival (then added in the same league) when we went for SA, that rules out both us and them now don't it??

  9. I wish we would stop talking about this as it’s never going to happen. McGinn is Celtic daft and wouldn’t sign for us anyway. Very narrow minded comments Gers Jimbo.

  10. Hibs will sell if we got £5 million for the Scottish International Player.
    make a statement and buy him before they do.

  11. Yeah Id Be Up for it If We Signed Him!
    But we Would have to get rid of Halliday/Dorrans/Jack etc

    …But Like has been Mentioned Hibs will NEVER Sell to Rangers so Its not an Issue plus, Id rather see Docherty/Barjonas make a go in the first team rather than us signing McGinn

  12. I was looking at the bigger picture about this coming season they Selltic look like they are going to sell some of there young crown jewels if the price is right and that price is in the 10s of millions for many of them,it is down to our manager Steven Gerrard who has lifted the bar for the coming season i hope i am wrong but i think Brendan Rodgers through fear of losing is going bring in some top older seasoned professional players or mercenary players if you like and go for another record the 10 in a row he may well sell some young players and pay big wages with the money from them to bring in the best seasoned pros he can get his hands on i hope i am wrong but over the next few weeks we should know for sure.

  13. Who cares what that mob do Stevie has to get Marriott and another c back then let that shower worry what we do
