With 11 points in their bag after 6 league outings, Scottish Premiership outfit Rangers have had a decent start to their new campaign. Placed 3rd in the league table, the Gers are currently 5 points behind the current table toppers and their arch-rivals Celtic.
But owing to the manner in which they have plied their trade so far, it wouldn’t be absurd to underline that they are unarguably one of the sides which looks capable enough to garner an appealing battle with the Celts for clinching the domestic silverware.
Under the tutelage of Pedro Caixinha, Rangers made some stupendous signings in order to beef up their arsenal. Some of the notable players like Bruno Alves, Alfredo Morelos, Daniel Candeias, Ryan Jack and Graham Dorrans were lured to the Ibrox Stadium.
Thus, it goes without saying that the former Al-Gharafa boss does have the requisite depth as well as the quality in their squad to reach greater heights this season as compared to their form last term. But during the January transfer window, they would look keen to bolster their credentials further.
Reports have surfaced lately that the Light Blues are believed to be in hot pursuit of signing St Mirren’s blossoming starlet Lewis Morgan. Apart from the apparent interest from the Rangers’ camp, Celtic and Swansea City are also believed to be monitoring the progress of Morgan who is one of the highly rated youngsters in Scottish football at this stroke of the hour.
Morgan emerged through the youth ranks of Rangers, but the Saints were quick to make him sign on the dotted line in 2013. He has been an exceptional player for the Saints for a considerable period of time now and has started the 2017-18 season of the Championship in a spectacular fashion, as he has bagged 5 goals in 8 games across all competitions so far.
Naturally a central attacking midfielder, the 20-year-old is capable of plying his trade on either wing and operates with great intent in the final third. He constantly looks to score goals and create ample amount of opportunities for his teammates and no wonder why his stocks are so highly rated.
Having shown his calibre for quite some time now, Morgan is seemingly likely to venture into new and lucrative endeavours and a move to the ranks of the Teddy Bears should appeal him. Besides, his contract with the Buddies ends next summer, so Rangers should try to tempt St Mirren with a decent bid to secure Morgan’s services.
