Zak Rudden could be Rangers’ secret weapon next season

Zak Rudden could be Rangers’ secret weapon next season

Steven Gerrard will already have his eyes on summer additions with silverware going missing in the current campaign. One change that the Englishman has to think about making is at the pinnacle of the attack, as Alfredo Morelos constantly makes rash decisions. 

The Light Blues may not have to look far to find reinforcements at the pinnacle of the attack as Rangers youngster Zak Rudden is thriving out on loan at Scottish Championship side Falkirk at this moment in time.

Indeed, the exciting 19-year-old can operate out on the wing or up top and he’s managed to produce an impressive 12 goals and four assists in 29 appearances this season. Rudden deserves a chance in the first-team ranks next season as he’s shown he can ensure a consistent flow of goals and he has the vision to pick out a pass in the final third.

He could be Gerrard’s secret weapon next season as not many teams in the Scottish Premiership will know how he operates. And, it’s clear to see that turning to youth works as Glenn Middleton and Ross McCrorie have impressed under the guidance of the Rangers boss in the current campaign.

Kyle Lafferty could be set for a summer exit as he’s failed to make any inroads in the current campaign, while Alfredo Morelos has failed to keep his cool at times which has made him a liability. So, Rangers could be down to the bare bones in the summer with Jermain Defoe possibly being the only striker at Gerrard’s disposal.

Rudden wouldn’t be expected to score a large amount of goals in the Scottish Premiership if he was used next season, but a goal or two every now and again would certainly help Rangers’ cause.
