Rangers should have signed James Morrison on free transfer

Following a hectic few weeks of transfer activity, things have gone a little quiet at Ibrox with regards to new arrivals, but Steven Gerrard should still be in the hunt for new talent this month. 

It seems that Gerrard’s presence at Rangers has given the club a new weight of appeal which it has lacked under previous managers, and the supporters are hoping his natural charm will arrive in tandem with a dramatic improvement in the club’s performances on the field of play.

There’s no doubt that it will take time for the players to fully integrate and gel together effectively, but one man who could have helped Gerrard with that process has just completed a move to West Bromwich Albion.

According to the BBC, the 46-cap Scotland international James Morisson has agreed to re-sign for West Bromwich Albion this summer just weeks after his contract expired with the Baggies.

Although Morrison is hardly the type of marquee signing which supporters of Rangers would have been overly excited about, his vast experience in the game could have been a valuable addition to the dressing room, whilst his exemplary work-rate in midfield would have set the standard for the players around him.

At 32-years-of-age Morrison has more than 300 PL appearances under his belt from central midfield where has become something of an all-round box-to-box player.

With a willingness to cover ground for his team at the forefront of his game, Morrison has complemented his excptional work-rate with a willingness to put the ball into dangerous areas at every available opportunity, whilst defensively he has been consistently diligent in his efforts to regain possession.

Rangers’ summer transfer window has been incredibly productive so far, but it’s difficult to help feeling like they have missed a trick by not signing the reliable and experienced Morrison on a bargain free transfer.
