Clever plan could net Rangers millions…


Rangers’ Greg Docherty is back in the limelight after Hibs were reported to be interested in securing him for next season, but perhaps Steven Gerrard has a multimillion plan involving he and Scott Arfield.

As we know, the Canada international is subject to serious interest from PL sides down south, with Southampton being the most notable name so far to be quoted – and while the sum mentioned was a modest £3M, a bidding war will certainly see that value rise significantly.

However, while we love Arfield here at Ibrox Noise, Docherty has been delivering outstanding results in the same position in League One – attacking midfield.

Could Stevie have a plan hatching in his mind to get the colossal profit for Arfield and shift Docherty forward to that position next season as a free and amazingly able replacement?

Naturally Docherty was a DM at Ibrox, and a pretty darn good one, but he’s evolved into a playmaker and goalscorer – just like Arfield. 11 assists to Arfield’s 7, and 10 goals to Arfield’s 11. He’s effectively a younger model now.

Not even us who could be called Arfield’s biggest fanboys (and girls) would object to a massive multimillion pound profit on him while installing Docherty in his slot instead.

Not the worst idea we’ve ever heard…


  1. Would rather keep some consistency from one season to the next. Arfield is only now coming on to his game. We have chopped and changed so much over the last few seasons and it has cost us in terms of performances. I understand that we are a selling club and Arfields value will only drop. A lot will depend on whether Morelos moves on.

  2. Might be safer to keep both of them for a season while we decide whether or not Doch can do it. But at that point Arfield may not have a sell on value.
    So a bit of a gamble either way. Unless we can find a slightly younger Arfield who can hit the ground running to play and mentor Docherty

  3. Docherty was not a good DM, there's no point kidding yourselves IN. Mcrorie and Jack are miles better, Arfield is needed now and we can't afford to wait. Kamara was a good purchase but we still lack something through the middle, especially in goals to help the front 3. Gaps atm are on right wing, left back, AM and back ups for CB and striker. Left wing also if we don't keep Kent somehow. Agree with Calvin above, we need some stability so the key will be holding the best (Morelos aside)

  4. It's very different playing League 1 England to the pressure to perform at Rangers, saying that the lad deserves his chance at Ibrox.

  5. And when Docherty gets injured? Then what. Keep both Docherty is ideal for next season. Need the strongest squad possible.

  6. Docherty is not in Arfields class and no way would that be a good swap ,he might have a role to play next season but not in Arfields spot.

  7. I'll say again, never happen, Arfield will be a Rangers player next season. As will Docherty.

  8. The saints would have snapped Scott up last season on a free if they fancied him . This is just paper talk Southampton like their players young Scott will be with us .
