Exclusive: Pundit doesn’t think Oli McBurnie is a Steven Gerrard type player

Exclusive: Pundit doesn’t think Oli McBurnie is a Steven Gerrard type player - Rangers News

Dean Windass thinks that the Scottish Premiership is Oli McBurnie’s sort of level, but doesn’t believe he’s a Steven Gerrard type of player.

Despite representing Scotland at international level, the Sheffield United striker has never kicked a ball north of the border.

Would Rangers sell out 60,000 at Ibrox?

Yes

Yes

No

No

But the 24-year-old has emerged as a target for Rangers despite scoring just once in 24 Premier League appearances for the Blades last season.

In fact, the boyhood Rangers fan has only found the just seven times in 65 outings since his move from Swansea two years ago and has been strongly linked with a move away from Bramall Lane following their relegation.

Sheffield United signed McBurnie for around £20m in 2019, but reports believe that Gerrard’s men could pinch him for significantly less – especially with just two years left on his Blades contract.

But despite the cut-price, Windass told The Transfer Tavern that he can’t see a move to Ibrox materialising:

“I can’t see him being a Steven Gerrard type of player. Not technically the greatest player in the world. Scottish Premiership is his level, but he’s not a Steven Gerrard type of player.”

Having failed to prove himself as a Premier League player, Rangers would be an excellent move for McBurnie, especially with the prospect of playing in the Champions League.

But his goal record since arriving at Bramall Lane isn’t exactly inspiring, so that could force Gerrard to look elsewhere.
