Rangers, despite leading the title race at one stage, failed to maintain the momentum in the later months. Celtic are on the verge of conquering the Scottish crown for the ninth successive season via the controversial SPFL resolution and the Gers, therefore, must strengthen themselves furthermore prior to the upcoming term.

Although they are determined to spoil Celtic’s ‘ten in a row’ party next year, the potential summer egress of Alfredo Morelos would be a significant blow in pursuit of their title dream. Steven Gerrard must find a quality alternative of the free-scoring Colombian, and a few names have popped up recently as his successor at Ibrox.

Why Rangers Should Consider A Move For The Young Attacker

The former Liverpool great has explored his Liverpool connections time and again since being appointed as the Bears boss and has now been suggested to use the same to rope in Rhian Brewster. Former Leeds striker Noel Whelan has lauded the 20-year-old’s ‘fox in the box’ attribute which, he believes, the Light Blues would require to add goals to their game in the absence of Morelos.

“Let him have that full preseason with the team and get bedded in. With the likes of Ryan Kent, who Rhian will already know, that relationship will ease him in and of course, he will know Steven as well. Steven will know what kind of character and quality he is getting from the player.”

Stated Whelan (as quoted by The Daily Star) who also highlighted the crisis high up the pitch amid Morelos’ exit talks. Jermain Defoe, 37, is past his prime. Florian Kamberi, despite joining on loan from Hibernian on the winter deadline day, is uncertain of his Ibrox future due to limited opportunities before the suspension of the game in the wake of the global health crisis.

Why Brewster Would Be Benefitted From The Spell

Brewster is rated highly back in Merseyside but has failed to break into the Reds’ senior side ahead of Roberto Firmino and Divock Origi. A few Cup minutes were not enough for his development and Jurgen Klopp, therefore, sanctioned a loan switch to Swansea City back in January.

The youngster, so far, has found the net four times in 11 Championship outings (stats via Transfermarket) exhibiting the glimpses of his excellence as an outright ‘number 9’.  He was the top scorer for his nation when England humbled Spain to grab the U17 FIFA World Cup glory and would be benefitted immensely from a season-long stint in Govan. Gerrard, meanwhile, has managed him before while in charge of the Liverpool youth and should help him grow his game once again in one of the most aggressive football leagues in Europe.
