Ross McCormack deal would be huge for Rangers’ title aspirations

Rangers have begun the season with signs of promise which suggest a potential title bid could be on the cards, and Celtic’s early slip up against Hearts has certainly added further legitimacy to their aspirations for the season. 

Rangers’ summer spending spree has been a huge talking point in recent months as the club continue to attempt to narrow the gulf in class between Celtic and the rest of the division who have been left well behind the Hoops in recent seasons.

Despite bringing in 11 players already this summer, a recent report from the Daily Record suggests that Gerrard is not finished with his recruitment drive just yet.

According to the report, Rangers are interested in re-signing Ross McCormack this summer who looks destined to leave Aston Villa as a result of his fractured relationship with Steve Bruce.

Rangers have been heavily linked with a move for Kyle Lafferty in recent weeks, but in McCormack it appears they have found an ideal alternative.

After falling out with Bruce last year, the 32-year-old veteran embarked on a loan move to Melbourne City where he showcased his poachers instinct by bagging a whopping 14 goals from just 17 appearances.

McCormack’s return was a subtle reminder of the clinical instinct he possesses and, although Australian football is lacking the quality of the SPFL, there’s no doubt the record is indicative of his ability to thrive upon a potential return to Ibrox and give the club a huge boost in their bid to clinch the title.

With only Alfredo Morelos and Umar Sadiq to chose from at centre-forward, there’s no doubt that Gerrard needs to bring in another attacker before the window slams shut who possesses the ability to find the back of the net on a regular basis for the club.

McCormack certainly fits the bill on the evidence of his recent success in Australia, so Gerrard should offer him a lifeline in British football by giving him the chance to return to Rangers this summer.
