Having failed miserably to go toe-to-toe with their arch rivals, Celtic, in the Ladbrokes Premiership, Rangers have to make a massive overhaul of their squad in the summer. Pedro Caixinha knows that he has put his feet into the baptism of fire and a lot of expectations shall be nested on his shoulders next season which he needs to meet without any compromise.
The English Championship is a pool of talents which the Portuguese could definitely dig into whilst bettering his squad and here are three players from the English second tier which he should be attempting to lure to the Ibrox Stadium.
3 Championship Players Caixinha Could Sign For Rangers
With 12 goals and 5 assists to his name already in the Championship this season, Tom Ince has been one of the stand-out performers for Derby County this season. The Rams, however, have fallen out of contention for securing a play-off spot which implies that a player of Ince’s calibre might be tempted to ply his trade for a top flight side in the continent.
The 25-year-old would be a shrewd addition to Caixinha’s midfield setup, for he has oiled Derby County’s machinery meticulously this season and has not only cushioned their backline but has also created momentum for upward surges as well.
Up front for Leeds United, it has been all about Chris Wood. The New Zealand international has singlehandedly catered to the striking needs of the Whites, as a result of which a high calibre hitman like Marcus Antonsson is being handed minimal appearances by Garry Monk.
The Swedish had carved a fine reputation for himself as a serial goal getter for Falkirk before making a move to the Elland Road. But what has transpired so far, it is seemingly unlikely that he would stay beyond the ongoing season and would vouch for clubs who could promise him regular game time. He would certainly not be a bad coup by the former Al Gharafa boss.
A player who can play in the no. 6 slot as well as in the right-back position, Vurnon Anita might not be hugely appreciated by Newcastle United faithful but make no mistake, he is a decent player to have for a side like Rangers who are in a dire need of boosting their ranks with players having experience and quality.
He is strong on an off the ball, works relentlessly throughout the pitch and controls the tempo of the game and considering the fact that his contract confining him to St. James’ Park expires in the summer, the Gers could get him for free in the summer if things stand in this manner.
