Rangers fans here in the Tavern will be desperate for their side to enjoy success in the next campaign after struggling to compete with bitter rivals Celtic this season.
Steven Gerrard will be looking to enjoy a successful time of things at Ibrox after taking over from Graeme Murty, with many of our local residents expecting some silverware next season.
Of course, the summer transfer window is always going to be important when it comes to strengthening the squad, however, Rangers may adopt a slightly different strategy for next season.
Interestingly, Dave King may want Gerrard to take a look at a couple of the club’s youth players in an attempt to save money. Indeed, Rangers have seen the likes of Ross McCrorie and David Bates come up through their ranks, so there’s no reason as to why more talented youth players can’t make their way into the first-team next season.
With that in mind, King must be begging Gerrard to promote these TWO youngsters…
The teenager featured nine times for the Bluenoses this season, but he still needs to prove that he deserves a permanent place in the side with Steven Gerrard now at the helm.
Gerrard will want his side to keep the ball on the ground next season with a quick passing style of play, which is something that the defender will excel at as he loves the ball at his feet.
So, Dave King will definitely be begging Gerrard to promote Jamie Barjonas in the next campaign, having seen how disappointing Andy Halliday was in the middle of the park this season.
The 19-year-old managed to feature in two Scottish Premiership matches before being sent out on loan to Championship side Dumbarton for the second half of the campaign.
Indeed, the teenager was one of the young talents who made the trip with the first team to Florida earlier on in the season, where he enjoyed some valuable game time against Brazilian side Atletico Mineiro.
So, there’s no reason as to why he can’t become a reliable performer at the heart of the Rangers defence next season, having witnessed Bruno Alves’ poor first season in the Scottish Premiership.
