Stevie G has announced his four 'undroppables'; and there's a stunning omission....


Steven Gerrard, surprisingly, has revealed his four ‘undroppables’ after confirming January action in the transfer market may be limited.

Rangers manager had a tough time of it on Sunday, along with the team, following an unnecessary dropped pair of points in the pursuit of restoring first place in the SPL.

And now he has admitted, in delving into the transfer market, that four players in his team are essentially absolute first-picks and he’d be unable to find more like them this winter.

Even more surprisingly, one of the omissions in this list raises something of an eyebrow.

He said:


"I think it'll be very hard to find someone in January who's better than a Ryan Jack, a Connor Goldson, a Joe Aribo or an Alfredo Morelos."

Confirming Connor Goldson is a 100% mainstay, Gerrard surprises everyone with the omission of captain James Tavernier, who he promoted himself to permanent fixture of the honour while starting him in every match since, bar one maybe two rests.

Furthermore, the manager praised last January’s acquisition of both Steven Davis and Jermain Defoe, but didn’t include them as ‘undroppables’.

It was a very interesting quote – Aribo has been far from spectacular since joining, but appears to be a Gerrard favourite this early, and Goldson has come under fire from wide portions of the fanbase for perceived incompetency.

But it’s that absence of Tavernier from the list which raises the big eyebrow.

  2. Ye can't disagree with these four surely. Tav has had a bad couple games.Take the pressure off him give armband elsewhere. Not as a punishment though.

  3. There's no surprise about Jack and Morelos and we all know the situation about Goldson, whether we agree or not. As for Aribo IN, you have written on here many a time about the great piece of business we did to get Aribo on board for £250,000. I think Gerrard is alluding to that rather than his performances. What would be the chances of him getting another Joe Aribo.

  5. Don't disagree with players mentioned but personally I like tav. As his big problem is he likes to go forward and concentrates on going forward to much so defensive qualities go out the window maybe to much asked off him
