Rangers Eyeing Up Summer Move For 23 Y/O Midfield Ace: Right Man For Gerrard’s Plans?

Rangers FC are one of the many interested parties in Hibernian midfielder, John McGinn. The Hibs have set an asking price of £5m which is turning out to be hard to match for Steven Gerrard. The Gers manager wants to make a significant improvement to the current Rangers squad and he wants to bring in young athletic players of McGinn’s pedigree to make an improved challenge for the league title.

McGinn is coming off his third season with the Cabbage, having appeared in 46 games in the 2017/18 campaign and being involved in 14 goals. The Glasgow-born player made his way to Easter Road in the summer of 2015 and totalled 132 appearances for the club while registering 15 goals and 27 assists.

He featured in Scotland’s international friendly against Hungary earlier in the season and was met with high praises from his manager, Neil Lennon. The Hibees boss said, “I thought he was excellent for Scotland. I’m delighted for him. He is in brilliant form and it’s great profile for the club. While he is here we just want to get the best out of him. In the last two or three seasons he has been outstanding and he is getting better.”

The Northern Irishman also revealed that he would be delighted to have McGinn in his team for another season but the business side of the proceedings need to be considered as well. While it would be a massive boost in their chase for a top-half table finish, losing the player for nothing will be a huge loss in the long-term.

Getting £5m or better will help them find able replacements as competition starts to build for the player’s signature. McGinn is still only 23 and has quite a bit of stock value after the impressive season he has just played.

He has already been capped 7 times by the Scottish national team and 10 times for the U19 and U21 sides. He spent his early years with St Mirren FC, where he made 98 appearances and scored 4 times.

McGinn will be a solid midfield presence at the Ibrox alongside players like Josh Windass, Ryan Jack, Jason Holt and Graham Dorrans. Sean Goss has also left as he bid adieu to the Rangers fans on his social media account.

McGinn could fill in as a permanent long-term option to help the side in ending Celtic’s dominance in the Scottish top-flight.
