Gerrard keen to recall Greg Docherty

Gerrard keen to recall Greg Docherty

Rangers were impressive prior to the international break as they’re beginning to build up ahead of steam under the guidance of Steven Gerrard. 

The Bluenoses still remain behind Celtic, Hearts and a number of other clubs in the race for the Scottish Premiership title, but this season has been far from the norm so they’ll be desperate to keep up the pressure. And, it appears as if Gerrard is keeping an eye on one of the players he loaned out during the summer, as according to the Evening Times, the Rangers boss is very keen on recalling Greg Docherty.

Greg Docherty has revealed that Steven Gerrard is keen on him returning to Rangers for a shot in the first team after his loan spell at Shrewsbury and that a move back to Ibrox could happen in January.

The 22-year-old moved from Glasgow to English League one side Shrewsbury Town in the summer on a temporary deal in a bid to get the young talent more game time.

Here’s what the midfielder had to say: 

“The manager has been very clear that he wants me to come back, and he is very keen for me to come back. So, I’ll take it game by game up until January and see where things are at, and if I’m here for the season then that’s fine. Whatever it takes to make a real success of my Rangers career, I’ll do it.”

THE VERDICT:

So, it appears as if Docherty’s loan spell has worked wonders for his future at Rangers, with Steven Gerrard already weighing up a potential recall in January.

Indeed, the Bluenoses could do with another central midfield option so recalling him wouldn’t be the worst of ideas, especially after witnessing his form in England.
