With Rangers’ midfield certainly feeling the loss of Graham Dorrans and form drought of Lassana Coulibaly among others, Steven Gerrard is looking into making serious inroads towards January additions to shore it up.
Steven Davis, we already know is high on the list of possible acquisitions, setting in motion the third ‘deserter’ return following Allan McGregor and Kyle Lafferty. The cost for the out-of-favour Southampton captain would be fairly modest given his deal expires in the summer, and most fans seem keen on this deal happening.
However in the past 24 hours another ex-Rangers player has also been whispered in conjunction with a deal back to where it started for him. 24-year old Lewis Macleod, who had a torrid time with injuries since departing for Brentford, is said to be interesting Rangers’ management, especially Gary McAllister who it’s reported is a big admirer. Macleod recently turned down a deal to stay at Griffin Park although negotiations are said to be continuing, but links with Rangers have very much started and the £800,000 signing would be keen on coming back given he never wanted to leave in the first place.
However, with his being a regular now in the Championship Rangers wouldn’t get him for a low cost despite his deal expiring in the summer and if Gerrard and McAllister really want to secure this dynamic young player at Ibrox again, they will surely have to at least match what Rangers sold him for.
These are two signings few Rangers fans would be disappointed with.
