Rangers have been extremely impressive in recent times as they’ve managed to win their last three games in all competitions, which has helped them gain some momentum.
Steven Gerrard will feel confident that his side can get the job done in the current campaign, as there’s still a long way to go in the race for the Scottish Premiership title.
Interestingly, the Light Blues managed to strengthen in pretty much all areas during the January transfer window as they welcomed the likes of Jermain Defoe, Steven Davies, Matt Polster, Andy Firth and Glen Kamara to the club.
Although, one position that they failed to strengthen in was the No.10 role. Josh Windass thrived in that role behind Alfredo Morelos during his time at Ibrox, but he decided to join Wigan Athletic in the summer transfer window.
Rangers should have done everything they could to lure Windass’ team-mate, Nick Powell, to Ibrox last month. The Gers were credited with an interest in the January transfer window with his contract running out in the summer, but rather than focusing on signing him at the end of the season they should have attempted to pay a fee last month.
Indeed, the title race could have well and truly tipped in Rangers’ favour, as an attack that involves Ryan Kent, Alfredo Morelos, Jermain Defoe and Powell would be almost unstoppable.
The 24-year-old is arguably one of the best attacking midfielders in the English Championship, having produced an impressive four goals and five assists in just 18 appearances this season. He has everything you could want in an attacker, with his pace, strength, passing, dribbling, finishing and aerial ability making him the perfect signing.
Alfredo Morelos and Jermain Defoe would have thrived off Powell’s service in the final third. He can score and provide assists, as well as getting stuck in on defensive duties, so he has all the ingredients to become a star at Ibrox.
Rangers fans – thoughts on whether you should have signed Powell?
