Rangers supporters have been in fine voice in the Transfer Tavern in the last few days after seeing their team get back to winning ways with a narrow 1-0 success over Kilmarnock at Ibrox on Saturday.
The Gers were playing their first match following the departure of manager Graeme Murty earlier that week, with the Scot’s final straw proving to be their horrendous 5-0 defeat against Celtic last weekend, a result which earned the Bhoys the title. But with Steven Gerrard announced as Murty’s successor on Friday, things are looking up for the Scottish giants, and they recorded a vital three points in their quest to finish second as David Bates’ goal five minutes from time was enough to seal the win for the Light Blues on Saturday.
As such, there have been many delighted Rangers fans in the Tavern in recent times, several of whom are very much looking forward to the new era under Gerrard, whose standing in the game is likely to attract high-profile players to the club this summer.
And one man several of our resident Gers supporters feel should seek to reignite his career at Ibrox is £7.2 million-rated Liverpool striker Danny Ings (as per Transfermarkt), who has struggled with injury since his move to Anfield back in 2015.
The 25-year-old deservedly earned a move to Merseyside after impressing for fellow top-flight side Burnley, but a cruciate ligament injury just a few months into his spell at Liverpool has since restricted the forward to just 24 senior appearances for the club.
And with 13 appearances coming this time round under Jurgen Klopp, it’s clear that the one-time England international is beginning to return to match fitness, but it’s highly unlikely that he’ll command regular football at Anfield such is the sensational form of front three Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane, and Mohamed Salah.
Between the trio, they have bagged a staggering 89 goals this season, and while Ings appears to be next in line were any of them to get injured or suspended, he’s still not going to get the game time he would want to really get back to his best form.
Yet he could do that north of the border at Rangers.
Clearly, Ings is a hugely adept striker and one that, prior to injury back in 2015, was selected in the England squad – who knows what level he could be at now were it not for that injury.
And although the 25-year-old joined the club months after Gerrard retired from playing, he would likely have seen him working with the Under-18 side in the last 12 months or so, and the chance to play for the Liverpool legend at a huge club like Rangers may be exactly what he needs to get his career going again.
Ultimately, first team football seems unlikely at Liverpool, whereas there’s little doubting that he’d be near the top of the pecking order at Rangers, as such significantly strengthening their ranks in their bid to bridge the gap to Old Firm rivals Celtic.
As such, the England international should seriously consider reigniting his career at Gerrard’s Rangers this summer.
