Rangers Eyeing This Aston Villa Forward: Would His Addition Make Any Sense?

Scottish Premiership outfit Rangers have had a mixed start to their new campaign this season as they have piled 11 points from their first seven games and are placed at the 5th spot in the league table. The Gers, during their last outing, were comprehensively beaten in the Old Firm derby by their arch-rivals Celtic and their defeat has handed the Celts a handsome lead of 8 points over Rangers.

Pedro Caixinha chiselled a very productive summer transfer window by luring some spectacular names like Bruno Alves, Graham Dorrans, Daniel Candeias, Ryan Jack and Carlos Pena to the Ibrox Stadium on order to pencil his revolution at the Glasgow based club.

However, the results which have dished out, haven’t been in their favour and apparently, Caixinha is still keen to bolster his arsenal further during the January transfer window.

Aston Villa’s out-of-favour striker Ross McCormack has been rumoured with a move to the ranks of the former Al-Gharafa boss. McCormack has been sidelined under the tutelage of Steve Bruce and has been handed merely two appearances as a substitute in the EFL Cup. Reports have also emerged which have been linking him with A-League side Melbourne City, and in a situation like this, Rangers should attempt to take some proactive measures.

McCormack is a player of significant pedigree and has proven his mettle in English Championship for a considerable period of time. Having emerged through the youth ranks of the Rangers, the Scottish international plied his trade for their senior side before making moves to Motherwell, Cardiff City, Leeds United, Fulham and Aston Villa, apart from loan spells with Doncaster Rovers and Nottingham Forest in the meantime.

He could be a solid addition for the Teddy Bears and a reunion with his former club would make a lot of sense. The 31-year-old has the calibre of smashing goals left right and centre (although his form lately hasn’t been an appealing one), has the requisite experience and is familiar with the Scottish Premiership. Besides, he possesses a strong physique, links well with his teammates and manoeuvres crisp passes and movements in the final third.

Aston Villa have the likes of Scott Hogan, Gabriel Agbonlahor and Jonathan Kodjia in the attack, and thus, his chances of getting games under his belt does look bleak. A loan spell to a big club like Rangers should offer him the platform to perform and thrive and if a deal pans out, Caixinha would have yet another potent predator to accommodate in his tactical nous as per his needs.
