Rangers midfielder Greg Docherty has emerged as a transfer target for English Championship Rotherham, as reported by The Scottish Sun.

The 22-year-old has been spending the current season out on loan at League One side Shrewsbury Town, catching the eye with a number of exceptional performances.

It seems he’s making a name for himself with the paper reporting that Rotherham boss Paul Warne sees him as a viable option as they battle relegation from the English second-tier.

The former Hamilton Accies man has scored seven goals and created another seven assists in 29 appearances during his time at Shrewsbury, with many Rangers fans keeping a keen eye on his week-to-week progress.

However, with midfield competition at Rangers now tougher than ever after the Steven Davis and Glen Kamara deals, is there room for the player in Steven Gerrard’s first-team squad?

Docherty recently opened up about his absence from Ibrox, making it clear he would love a return as soon as possible.

As quoted by The Scottish Sun, he said:

Rangers seem to be quite happy with my progress and the last thing they want is for me not to be playing, so if I keep developing down here they will be happy.

With everything going on at the club – the win over Celtic, players like Davis and Jermain Defoe coming in – of course I was thinking it’d be great to be back involved in that this month but I’ve got to think about what’s best for me in the long term.

The hope is that Docherty returns to Ibrox a superior and more well-rounded performer than the raw ability on offer in his first six months at the club.

I’d love to see him make it here given his admiration for the club and hopefully Gerrard sees long-term potential in him.
