Steven Gerrard was extremely active in assembling his Rangers squad this summer when he arrived.
One man that joined him was Joe Worrall, who he managed to bring on a season-long loan from Nottingham Forest.
The England Under-21 international has turned out to be a key figure for the Light Blues this season and has been favoured in some of the bigger matches ahead of the likes of Gareth McAuley and Nikola Katic.
However, those performances have not gone unnoticed by his parent club, but Gerrard is prepared to stand in the way of them bringing him back.
Forest are thought to be keen on bringing their £7.2million-rated enforcer, as per Transfermarkt, back to the City Ground after skipper Michael Dawson picked up an injury.
Worrall has been superb for Rangers this season so far and has been a key figure in a number of games for the Light Blues.
His arrival in the summer would have been regarded as a coup as the 21-year-old is certainly an excellent defender and the decision that Nottingham Forest had made to let him leave left many surprised.
However, with it being thought that there is no option for the player to make an early return, Gerrard will feel confident he can keep his star at Ibrox for the remainder of the season.
