Pundit Paul Robinson has urged John Lundstram to consider a move to Glasgow Rangers despite a report suggesting he has turned down a move to Ibrox
Lundstram should remain open to Gers
The Gers have been heavily linked with a move for the Sheffield United man, whose contract with the Blades runs out at the end of this season, but Football Insider revealed that £7.2m-valued 26-year-old (Transfermarkt) has no plans to move to Ibrox.
Speaking to the same outlet, former England goalkeeper Robinson believes Lundstram should remain open to a switch to Glasgow. He said:
“Lundstram needs to be playing at a high level week in, week out if he wants to get a big move at the end of the season,”
“It is difficult when you run your contract down if you have not got something sorted out. A lot of players in his position will already know the club they are joining next season, speaking from experience and to other players.
“If he is still trying to impress clubs at this stage he is running the risk of losing form, being dropped from the team or suffering an injury. That is always a big risk to take.
“I am surprised that the Rangers one has not materialised, I thought it was going to come to fruition. He would a great signing for Rangers given the way Steven plays.
“Lundstram needs to play things very carefully.”
Eye on the Premier League
Rangers are certainly a more attractive proposition than they have been in recent years. As it stands, they are 18 points clear at the top of the Premiership with ten games to play (BBC) and have lost just one game in all competitions this season (Sky Sports).
Their recent form in Europe has been impressive – they made the Europa League Round of 16 last term and are unbeaten in this campaign’s competition as they await a round of 32 tie against Royal Antwerp – and they could well be competing in the Champions League next time around.
Would you like to sign Lundstram?
Despite all of that, though, the Premier League is still a far greater pull for Lundstram – unfortunately for the Gers, they cannot compete with the wages and the competitiveness of the English top flight. It remains to be seen whether the Liverpudlian has a change of heart, but don’t count on it.
