Recently released Liverpool defender, Jon Flanagan, could be on the radar for Steven Gerrard as he looks to bring in reinforcements at his club Rangers to stop Celtic’s domination in the Scottish Premiership. The 25-year-old is the product of Liverpool academy and he made 51 senior team appearances for them. He was inducted into the first 11 and impressed initially but his career took a downturn since his off-field issues with his girlfriend.
He was charged with an assault charge on her and since then many of the Liverpool faithful wanted him out of the club. He had a loan spell with Burnley but ever since that episode, he is not being seen in the same light as before. He was one of the fan favourites in the season where he made his breakthrough under Brendan Rodgers and played an important role for him during his tenure.
Now he can have a chance to play under his former captain and it remains to be seen whether the Gers will buy him in the summer transfer market. However, they can expect some rivalry for the signature of the right back as Celtic are also said to be interested in the 25-year-old.
Flanagan is known for his dogged personality down the right. He is not physically strong and imposing but always seems to give his all when he is on the pitch. He is a hard worker and his perseverance and tenacity make the difference when he is defending. Liverpool fans will remember him for his acrobatic goal against Tottenham Hotspur which happens to be his only goal for the Reds.
The Gers have been defensively poor as they have had the worst defensive record in the league among top 7 clubs and it is clear that Gerrard will need to sort out problems at the back.
Flanagan will have to fight for his place with James Tavernier who is currently one of the best players for them and is a fan favourite. He managed 9 goals and 9 assists and will surely be the preferred option. However, Flanagan will certainly add competition for places and he has a decent amount of Premier League experience which will keep him in good stead in the Scottish division. However, some fans and board might not want to have him given his image off the pitch and that can be a cause of concern for the former Liverpool defender.
