Rangers fans in the Tavern are sick of constantly being in bitter rivals Celtic’s shadow and therefore want a crucial transfer window to be successful in helping Rangers form more of a challenge for the Premiership title.
Premier League stragglers West Brom on the other hand, are looking more and more likely to face the drop this year and consequently could see a lot of their players leave the club. In this case then, James Morrison, valued at £4.50 million on Transfermarkt, should be a target the Gers seriously consider.
The 31-year-old is out of contract with West Brom this summer and having missed the majority of the season due to injury, his future with the Baggies hangs in the balance. Morrison has been at the club since 2007 but maybe a new challenge in helping Rangers battle for the title is one desirable for the midfielder. He can play anywhere across the midfield and someone of his quality would easy allow Rangers to mount more pressure onto Celtic.
Manager Graeme Murty has enjoyed a very successful time in charge of Rangers thus far, as the Gers look on course to secure European football for next season. For someone who is likely to play their football in the Championship next season, European football would be available if James Morrison moved to Rangers, which is very tempting indeed.
What’s more is that Morrison’s boyhood club is Rangers and so this transfer seems rather destined to be. If he could overcome his injury problems then Rangers could bag themselves a bargain and fans around us at the bar agree that the Scotland international would be a huge coup for Rangers and one which would show their ambition ahead of a new campaign.
