It’s safe to say that Rangers fans will be disappointed with the lack of silverware in the current campaign, as many supporters had high hopes when Steven Gerrard was appointed.
The Light Blues are going to need to make a number of changes if they are to taste success next season, as they haven’t been able to handle the quality of Celtic or the Champions League.
Although, it appears as if Steven Gerrard may be able to secure a valuable summer signing, as according to Birmingham Mail, Rangers will be able to trump any offer Aberdeen make to sign Greg Stewart.
Stewart’s contract runs out in the summer and Rangers appear to be in the driving seat, so here are the potential consequences of Gerrard bringing him to Ibrox…
PRESSURE ON ALFREDO MORELOS
Alfredo Morelos has been simply sensational this season in terms of the amount of goals and assists he’s managed to produce, but his rash decision-making and anger issues have let him down.
The South American already has a lot of pressure on his shoulders after receiving his marching orders against Celtic in the Old Firm clash, with Gerrard now possibly unsure on whether to use him.
And, Stewart’s potential arrival certainly wouldn’t help his cause as Rangers having another striker at their disposal would put even more pressure on Morelos to perform.
GERRARD SECURES EDUARDO HERRERA REPLACEMENT
Not many Rangers supporters will remember Eduardo Herrera as he’s spent the current campaign on loan at Mexican clubs Necaxa and Santos Laguna, producing just three goals in all competitions.
And, according to Football Insider, Rangers are eager to get the 30-year-old off their wage bill this summer.
Stewart could be Herrera’s replacement in the summer as they both operate at the pinnacle of the attack, but the main difference is that Stewart knows how to score goals in the Scottish Premiership.
Rangers fans, surely signing Stewart would be a big upgrade on Herrera? Join the discussion by commenting down below!
