The transfer window might have just only opened, but Steven Gerrard and Rangers have already moved in quick to get the players they want.
Jordan Jones and Jack Hastie have all signed pre-contracts with the club earlier this year and Steven Davis is to join Rangers on a permanent deal following a successful loan spell in Glasgow, and more names are expected to come this summer, with a playmaker a top priority for the club.
And according to Sky Sports News, Gerrard might have just found that man in the form of Greg Stewart, who was recently released by Birmingham City but spent the entire season out on loan in Scotland.
The attacker made 31 Scottish Premiership appearances this season for both Kilmarnock and Aberdeen, scoring nine and assisting eight across his two loan spells, and Stewart would be a welcome addition to Gerrard’s team this summer.
Although Stewart’s main position is striker, the Stirling-born player has the qualities to operate as a playmaker for Gerrard next season, being agile enough to weave in between defenders and having the ability to make key passes and split up defences.
It would be a low-risk-high-reward move for Gerrard also should the move not work out. With Stewart signing on a free, the Rangers boss can afford to experiment with the former Birmingham man this season and test if he is capable of playing a more deeper role in the starting XI.
Stewart has the ability and stats to become a top playmaker in Scotland, and under Gerrard, the 29-year-old could be a coup of the signing for Rangers.
Rangers fans, would Stewart be a good signing? Let us know!
