Former Aston Villa striker Gabriel Agbonlahor believes that John Lundstram is a superb signing for Rangers and will make them even more formidable.
The Lowdown: Rangers seal Lundstram signing
Steven Gerrard will be looking to make his Gers side stronger ahead of next season as they look to seal back-to-back Premiership titles.
He has already made significant progress in that respect, signing Lundstram on a three-year deal from Sheffield United earlier this week.
Should Rangers cash in on Morelos now?
The Latest: Agbonlahor excited about move
Speaking to Football Insider, Agbonlahor was hugely positive about the move, believing that Lundstram’s quality could take Rangers up a further gear. He said:
“That’s the sort of business that Steven Gerrard’s good at.
“Steven Gerrard’s name, winning the Scottish Premiership and being at a big club like Rangers means they’re going to be able to sign these sorts of players.
“Lundstram, for me, was outstanding for Sheffield United. If they play to his strengths that’s a great signing.
“It just shows Rangers are getting stronger and stronger.”
The Verdict: A top-quality acquisition
Lundstram is an outstanding signing, considering he is still very much in the prime years of his career and has been playing in the Premier League.
He possesses the all-round quality to add a great deal to Gerrard’s team, scoring five league goals and chipping in with three assists in the 2019/20 season as Sheffield United finished in an impressive ninth position. Chris Wilder, his manager at Bramall Lane, has described him as “a fantastic example of how you should be as a professional footballer”.
Rangers will know that Celtic will be desperate to regain the Premiership title next year, but signings of Lundstram’s quality could help to ensure it remains at Ibrox for another 12 months, at least.
