For far too long, the Gers have been playing catch-up to Celtic, as the Bhoys have progressed from strength to strength. Celtic’s current dominance is irrefutable, but the Ibrox faithful are hopeful that Steven Gerrard can disrupt their domination and restore the glory days. The newly-appointed manager has already completed several signings, and Hibernian’s John McGinn should be the next in line.
Rangers have been linked with a move for the talented Hibernian midfielder; however, as the Daily Mail reports, several other clubs are interested in his services. Derby County, Leeds United and Celtic are all reportedly interested, yet Rangers should do their utmost to secure his signature.
The 23-year-old is entering the final year of his contract with Rangers’ divisional rivals, and at £3M, he represents and an excellent investment. Despite his age, McGinn has attained substantial experience. To date, the midfielder has amassed 230 senior appearances, scoring a fairly respectable total of 20 goals. Moreover, he’s attained the experience of playing on the international stage, having registered seven caps for Scotland.
To his credit, the Scotsman contributed towards nine goals in the Premiership last season, scoring five and providing four assists to his teammates. In addition to his impressive goal contribution, the midfielder is highly regarded for his versatility. McGinn can play comfortably at left midfield or as a defensive midfielder.
At his age, the Scotsman is endowed with considerable potential and promise, and it’s conceivable that the standard of his performances will increase when surrounded with greater quality. He would be an excellent addition to Rangers.
