Is it time for Rangers to trust Alex Lowry?

It really could be Alex Lowry’s time now.

Rangers have just sold, give or take 24 hours or so, our main creative influence, our fulcrum this whole season past.

Many would argue Joe Aribo was our most important player, if not our best, due to the reality of how Steven Gerrard then Giovanni have built Rangers’ entire team around him.

Being the most selected player in world football last season is testament to his importance, but in reality again, it’s not so much how important Aribo was, but how his place in the system was.

See, Gio relies on a 10, a playmaker, a player who can pass, dribble, and score.

In fairness, Aribo wasn’t the best at the latter, but he was good at maintaining the ball in the last third.

As of right now, with him imminently sold, Rangers have absolutely no 10. No playmaker in that advanced role – Ianis Hagi is not back till September or October, and Scott Arfield isn’t the right kind of player.

But Alex Lowry is.

Aribo’s sale opens the floodgates for him at Ibrox, giving him a prize chance to cement his place in the first team.

He has absolutely shown the talent and quality, and frankly if we’re not going to give him the shot now that we almost have no other option, there’s no point him being at Ibrox and signing that new deal.

But he did sign that new deal, didn’t he?

While it might be folly to throw him into the deep end and expect consistent 90 minutes from a green 19-year old, it also might not.

He did his apprenticeship last season, and did very well indeed – with no other fit 10 available now, Lowry has a slightly unexpected opening in front of him.

Will Gio go for it?

We hope so. It would be good to see Lowry trusted. But then, Gio knows better than us if the lad can be.

But it’s down to those two.

Time will tell if it is indeed Alex Lowry’s Time.

  1. We really do need to start trusting our youth lowery has already shown he has th ability to impact the first team you see other teams around th World giving 18 19 year olds there chance they go on to be world beaters and worth mega millions… If rangers don’t use lowery this year as a first team player then the lad should look to leave rangers in January as he will waste his career at rangers and thts so sad if we waste more talent… Watp

  2. Sir Alex used to say if there good enough there ready. Imagine what would have happened to Utd if those young players he had waited till they were “ old enough “.

  3. A great prospect but he isn’t ready to play for rangers week in week out. Use him sporadically, Ross county, st Mirren at home etc and get games under his belt. We know how some off our fans are a couple of bad games and then he’s ‘pish’ we need to be careful with him. (I would have lowry over arfield every day of the week, just hoping we sign an aribo replacement)
