Sensational return for previous Rangers target could be back on after dramatic development...


Rangers manager Steven Gerrard may forced into emergency use of the transfer market following the bleak prognosis for winger Jamie Murphy.

The 28-year old flying machine suffered a serious injury during yesterday’s cup clash with Kilmarnock on Rugby Park’s appalling surface, with confirmation of ligament damage and a potentially lengthy spell on the sidelines for the ex-Brighton man.

As such, Rangers’ options on the flank have dramatically thinned – only Ryan Kent and Daniel Candeias remain of the established first team, with Glenn Middleton as yet not deemed ready to start frequently.

With a system reliant on two wingers, Gerrard now has a real problem – and the only solution is to bring in another first-team senior player ready for immediate action.

Whether this would be a cheap permanent deal or a loan signing is unclear, but with his regular winger now likely unavailable for an indeterminate period of time, Gerrard must use all his contacts in football to secure someone before the window shuts in eleven days, and that could well see a shock return to interest in Killie’s Jordan Jones.

Already in a pickle following the (as yet unconfirmed) loss of Graham Dorrans till next year, Gerrard finds himself lacking quality attackers to say the least – Ryan Kent as yet has failed to completely impress, and Daniel Candeias has been in and out of the team. Middleton, as yet, has not received the call.

Jones would only set Rangers back the bulk of a million, and he would give Rangers four decent options for the wings and Gerrard the strength in depth he needs.

You know what you have to do!

    1. We have no qualms about letting Glenn loose either David but he is still very young and Stevie has to manage his development responsibly.

  5. Totally agree lads , give Middleton a bash , he’s proved when he comes on he’s not shy at going for it , plays for the team and the badge , take Jones on a pre signing in January for nothing.

    1. Gerrard seems to want to manage young players exposure to pressure and I doubt he'll make middleton a starter unless hes forced into it. I think we'll see candeas and kent start going forward.

  8. The boy jones is a player and could be a shrewd move if the money is right.

    Don’t matter who gets our money if it’s in the best interests of our club moving to get the player. Same with getting shot of Hodson, I’ve read on here we should just pay him (Half Mill year) rather than allow him to go to Stubbs. Stupidest thing I’ve heard in a while. Decisions in the best interests of the club moving forward only.

  9. Didn't Arfield play that position for Burnley? He would be a great counter attack outlet against the bigger teams, while we ease wee Glenn into the role.

    Similarly with Tav on the right, when we need a bit more strength in the wide areas, while Atakayi gets some game time.

    Think we still just need Laff in and still try to sell Foddy, Jak & Wallace. Wee Robby as backup keeper.

    1. Would Sell Foderingham

      Keep Jak and have Jak and Young Robbie fighting for the No.2 Jersey then when McGregor Retires in a couple of years, Make Jak No.1, Robbie as Jaks No.2 and Keep Allan at the club as like a Mentor/GK coach to young Goalies like Robbie.

      And id Keep Wallace
      ...He deserves another shot!
      Him and Miller did fk all wrong.

    2. Yeah like your thinking, just don't want to end up messing young Robby around the way we did with Allan when he was early 20s. Would like to see Robby get the domestic Cup games.

      Agree Wallace did nothing wrong, just don't see any need for him to stay either unfit or 3rd choice LB when fit. If we keep Wallace then sell Halliday.

    3. Yeah I get what your sayin man! πŸ‘

      We should try him in the left sided CB role we have been looking for!
      ...What we got to lose? πŸ€”

  10. Only has 11 months remaining on his contract so a pre signing deal in January to join in the summer representing a freebie. If he doesn’t come good it’s a 100% profit shifting him off
