Marko Grujic should the next man on Steven Gerrard’s Rangers list

Rangers fans were glad to see their side come out on top in their opening game of the Europa League.

Steven Gerrard took charge of his first competitive game in the first qualifying round against Macedonian side, FK Shkupi. Goals from Jamie Murphy and James Tavernier handed the former Liverpool captain a comfortable 2-0 lead heading into the return leg. The second leg takes place on July 17.

The former England skipper has wasted no time in revamping his squad this summer as he looks to challenge Celtic for the Scottish Premiership title. Gerrard has already brought nine new players to Ibrox this summer. Only two of his new arrivals have come from former club Liverpool.

One man who he should try to sign is Liverpool youngster – Marko Grujic. Valued at £4.5m by Transfermarkt, the Serb was tipped to be Gerrard’s successor at Anfield but has found first-team opportunities hard to come by. He was loaned to Cardiff City last season and became a key player for the Bluebirds.

Cardiff want Grujic to return next season, but Rangers would be wise to hijack their move. The opportunity to link up with Gerrard could be extremely appealing to the 22-year-old to aid his development. Working with a Liverpool legend may also improve his chances of becoming a success on Merseyside.

A tall midfielder with great technical ability, alongside Ovie Ejaria, Rangers would have a midfield to challenge for the title next year.

Rangers fans, thoughts?
