What does the future hold for Lewis Macleod at Brentford?

Rangers will be desperate to secure at least one piece of silverware in the current campaign, with a long way still to go in the race for the title. 

The Bluenoses have dropped off the pace slightly in recent times, which has had a negative effect on their quest for the Scottish Premiership title.

Indeed, with the January transfer window on the horizon, perhaps Steven Gerrard will be looking to bring in a number of additions to aid his side’s push.

Interestingly, the Bluenoses are reportedly interested in securing the services of Brentford midfielder Lewis Macleod, who has established himself as one of the hottest topics in the English Championship.

The 24-year-old played 67 times for Rangers before joining Brentford, so he certainly knows what its like to play in front of a packed crowd at Ibrox. And, having rejected a new contract at Griffin Park, it may be easy for the Scottish club to lure him back home.

However, Rangers did have to wave goodbye to Ovie Ejaria not so long ago as he has now returned to his parent club Liverpool. So, finding a direct midfield replacement will be one of Gerrard’s main priorities in the January transfer window, which makes signing Macleod even more important.

Ejaria did a solid job while on loan at Ibrox, scoring two goals and providing one assist, but he struggled to provide valuable contributions. On the other hand, Macleod is enjoying arguably the best season of his young career and is still an exciting prospect, with three goals and two assists to his name and the ability to cause real danger in the final third and from set-pieces, which is something Ejaria failed to do.
