Steven Gerrard guided Rangers to victory against rivals Celtic for the first time since April 2016.
The ex-England captain got the better of his former manager in the Old Firm derby with a 30th-minute strike from Ryan Jack proving to be the difference between the two sides. Gerrard’s side deservedly all three points and the former Liverpool captain’s words had clearly inspired his team. The win means Rangers moved level on points with their rivals who had a game in hand.
Gerrard deserves great credit for his work at the club so far with the Gers well and truly in the title race. With the transfer window now open, it’s likely Celtic will open their chequebook to sign reinforcements ahead of the run in. Gerrard should do the same and look to ease the goalscoring burden on the shoulders of Alfredo Morelos.
The ideal signing would be Gillingham forward – Tom Eaves. Valued at £90k by Transfermarkt, the Liverpool-born forward spent time on loan at various clubs in the football league before finally his feet at his current employers. Eaves was one of the most impressive performers in League One last season, netting 17 goals in 42 appearances.
Yet again, the 26-year-old has been in fine form, leading the scoring charts with 14 goals to his name already. A tall, powerful forward – Eaves would be an excellent alternative to Morelos in the attack and could combine perfectly with the Colombian. His goal scoring ability would lift some much-needed weight off his shoulders and give Gerrard another quality option in the final third.
His contract expires in less than six months; Eaves has indicated he won’t be extending his stay, meaning Rangers could secure themselves a New Year bargain.
