Josh Onomah would give Rangers a sprinkling of true stardust

Rangers continued their impressive start to life under Steven Gerrard with a 3-1 win over Kilmarnock in the Scottish League Cup.

Star striker, Alfredo Morelos, maintained his magnificent form – scoring a brace before half-time and completing his hat-trick after the interval to secure passage to the next round. The victory means the Gers are unbeaten in nine games under Gerrard’s guidance this season and face their most important fixture of the season next. Rangers must beat FC Ufa over two legs to reach the group stages of the Europa League.

Gerrard still has time to add to his squad despite bringing a whole host of players to Ibrox this summer. The former Liverpool captain is desperate to add to his attack and has pursued Hearts forward, Kyle Lafferty, for a number of weeks; the move is reportedly close to completion. Gerrard would be wise to return to the Premier League for his next signing.

The perfect addition to his squad could be Tottenham youngster – Josh Onomah. Valued at £2.7m by Transfermarkt, the 21-year-old was tipped for a bright future with the Lilywhites after graduating from their youth academy. Onomah was loaned to Aston Villa last season, where he 34 appearances scoring three and assisting four as the Villains narrowly missed out on promotion. With his route to the first-team blocked by Dele Alli, he is reportedly set to leave the club on loan again, and he could be an inspired addition to the Gers.

Onomah was part of the England U20 squad that lifted the World Cup last year and showed his quality at Villa Park. The youngster is great on the ball, averaging 1.3 successful dribbles per game last season, but also loves to track back and get stuck in, winning on average two tackles per game in the Championship (WhoScored). Another spell in a second-tier division could do wonders for his development and give Rangers another top option in the hole.
