Time is against Aaron Ramsey as he looks to make an impact at Rangers, journalist Chris Jack has warned.
The Wales midfielder is on loan from Serie A giants Juventus until the end of the season, having sealed a move on transfer deadline day in January.
Rangers’ former high-performance director Adam Owen heralded the signing as the club’s biggest since Paul Gascoigne in 1995, but just over a month into his stay at Ibrox, Ramsey has only played 94 minutes of football.
Speaking to GiveMeSport, Jack – a senior Rangers writer for The Herald and The Glasgow Times – expressed concern that Ramsey would not live up to expectations at Ibrox.
The journalist stated: “It’s safe to say he’s not impressed enough so far, and you look at how the season is shaping up, time is not on his side. There aren’t that many games left to get up to speed.”
Is there still enough time for Ramsey to make an impact with the Light Blues? There are still 10 league games remaining, with Rangers and Celtic battling for the Premiership title.
In addition, Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s side have reached the quarter-finals of the Scottish Cup and will bid to make it to the same stage of the Europa League by downing Red Star Belgrade over two legs later this month.
The Gers are still fighting on three fronts, and if Ramsey can overcome his current knock, he can still play a part towards any possible success this season. However, based on his injury history, the concern is that he breaks down again within weeks of returning, but that was the chance the club took when they made their move for the £4.5m-rated Welshman.
