The Rangers fans in the Transfer Tavern are desperately hoping that Steven Gerrard’s arrival will inspire the club to finally end Celtic’s long reign of supremacy in Scotland next season.
The arrival of Gerrard has installed a feeling of optimism into the resident Gers propping up our bar which has been missing in recent years, and with the right acquisitions this summer the supporters believe Celtic can be caught. Brendan Rodgers’ side have been virtually unchallenged at the summit of the SPFL in recent years – a notion which is illuminated by the fact Celtic have won 7 straight Scottish titles and broken the record for the longest domestic unbeaten run along the way.
But spells of dominance inevitably have to come to an end, and Rangers are beginning to believe they are close to catching Celtic. Gerrard recently made another move in the transfer market by signing Liverpool’s Ovie Ejaria on a season long loan deal, and there is plenty of reason to suggest he should return to his former club to sign yet another promising young talent, namely Harry Wilson.
The 21-year-old wing-wizard recently returned to Anfield from Hull City following an incredibly successful loan spell with the Tigers. The Wales international moved to Hull in January and adapted to his new club like a duck to water by notching 7 goals and providing 4 assists from 13 Championship appearances.
His goals at senior level took his tally to 17 for the season in all-competitions after scoring 10 from 12 for the U23 squad, so clearly he is a player with plenty of quality to offer in the final-third. In the Championship Wilson was regularly seen running directly at defenders with the ball glued to his left-foot, and his ability in this regard would undoubtedly serve as a menace for defenders in the SPFL next season.
Naturally, the link between Rangers and Liverpool will remain strong whilst Gerrard is manager of the club, so a potential loan deal should certainly be feasible, providing Jurgen Klopp doesn’t have bigger plans for Wilson of course.
With that in mind, Gerrard should propose a potential deal with his former club in the coming weeks in a bid to secure the signature of a player who would add flair, creativity and goals to the Rangers squad.
