Rangers to raid EPL and Serie A - reports



Rangers fans have become extremely excited over rumours regarding highly-coveted British pair Ravel Morrison and Ben Woodburn.

We’ve been hearing these names in Rangers circles of late, and within the past few days talk over the Lazio midfielder and Liverpool attacker, English and Welsh respectively, with particular interest over the former’s following of Rangers on social media.

Both stories are very believable – Morrison hasn’t had the best time in Italy, with just eight appearances since he moved to south Europe almost four years ago, and has found himself out on loan for the majority of it. Indeed, former West Ham boss Sam Allardyce, pretty honest at the best of times, considered the player a complete waste of talent when they worked together, with a questionable temperament and the wrong attitude.

But there’s no denying the boy has ability – and at 23 there’s still time for him to figure his career out under the guidance of Steven Gerrard. If there’s a position Rangers definitely lack depth in it’s Morrison’s slot of attacking midfield, with only Steven Davis and Graham Dorrans as legitimate options, and even then only one of those two is known for being creative. And can’t be relied on for fitness when it really comes down to it. So if Morrison was to arrive and give Rangers a real spark in that position, it would be welcome.

Meanwhile Woodburn is the one really getting tongues wagging. The 19-year old is hot property, much like Man City’s rising star Phil Foden is, but the latter seems a little ahead and has firmly broken into Guardiola’s first team while Woodburn is on the fringes, having managed 11 appearances in recent years but had a poor time last year at Championship Sheffield with the loan deal terminated.

The forward needs a fresh challenge, and Rangers will look at the success of Ryan Kent as inspiration to move for another attacking midfielder/winger from Anfield.

Both would be interesting signings, and we will see how these stories develop.

  1. Don't need Woodburn if Hardie stays. Also why would he join knowing Defoe and El Buff are ahead of him.

    Morrison would be a sensation if he has matured. My mate watched his early days in Man Utd youths and said he is the best young player he had ever witnessed ever. Bags of ability just a difficult upbringing and fell in with a bad crowd.

    I'd take Morrison but leave Woodburn.

  2. No wonder gers supporters getting excited at the thought of ravel morrison in a rangers jersey.This guy is a supremely talented midfielder,make no bones about it.
    Although not as good as paul gascoigne imo,he is a very similar styled midfielder, to gazza.Both are also hard to control,off the park.
    If stevie G, could sign morrison and get his head right,what a talent rangers would have,at their disposal.He has the ability to absolutely tear the scottish premiership apart.He'd be by far the best midfielder in the scottish game.The only down side is the baggage he brings,his talent is not in question.

  3. Morrison is a bum. There is a reason he has not played and when he has he hasn't performed to standard...anywhere. How many other teams have tried? Look at his stats. In this respect, Rangers are not special.
    Hands off that one.

  4. If we took Woodburn, we would be developing him at the cost of one of our own. Who should we drop to make way for him?

    Morrison is a disaster or a game changer, depending on which one turns up.

  5. Think it's all about what it would cost to bring them in. If Morrison was cheap enough then maybe it would be worth a punt. He's probably now at an age when he flourishes or throws away his career.

  6. Totally agree - what we definitely don't need is another winger! And no matter how you spin it Woodburn is a winger! Grezda, Candeais, Murphy, Kent, Middleton and Jones.... And with the likelihood that Gerrard will play two strikers up top, the need for yet another midfielder is nonsense. We already have 7 fighting for 2, or at the very most, 3 positions. Bottom line... unless we move at least 2 midfielders on, we don't need ANY other signings!

    1. We always need more players. They just need to be better than the ones we already have.
