Glasgow Rangers manager Steven Gerrard, has a few hugely important transfer requests to make to the Ibrox club’s board to consider during this January’s signing policy.
Can Rangers really afford to sign anyone to help them compete with Glasgow Celtic for the league title flag to hang over Ibrox park next season?
One-year-Liverpool-loanee Ovie Ejaria is suggesting that current forward Dominic Solanke from the Liverpool reserve team, should team up with him at Rangers until the end of this present season.
The on loan Merseyside’s talented midfield player is hoping that Solanke’s undoubted talent would be better served in Scotland with the Rangers first team, rather than be wasted in the Anfield reserve side.
We have already seen fellow loanee Ryan Kent endorse Rangers by saying he would love to sign a lucrative-long-term-contract to keep him in Govan for the next three or four years.
Ejaria is hoping to build his future at Anfield, but the fact that he is highly recommending Rangers to Solanke, is certainly boosting Steven Gerrard’s chances of signing the English striker for the second half of the season.
Is Ovie also showing a sort of commitment and contentment to life in Scotland by playing regular first team football with Rangers and a possible future with the Light Blues, if he cannot ever break into the Liverpool top team plans.
Jurgen Klopp’s current Liverpool team is filled with so many world class players plus a fantastic depth of talent available to him, that Ejaria may not make the first team squad – but he can always come back to Rangers.
The exact same reason why Ryan Kent is talking about staying at Rangers more permanently. He loves playing at Ibrox and is applying common sense to the arising situation.
It is pleasing to see Ejaria’s overtures to try his damnedest to match up English striker Solanke to Rangers, but it may also lead to the loanee settling for his own longer term career at Ibrox, just like Kent’s summary of his very similar situation.
Ejaria has the ability to eventually become a very talented, composed, strong and assured, central midfielder who can win the ball back and set off many quick attacking movements, for our forwards to take advantage off.
With the amount of first-team exposure Ejaria is experiencing for the Light Blues, is life finally appealing more to him than he has previously shown to the fans?
He is now trying very hard to get his ex-Liverpool teammate Solanke to come and enjoy his football at Ibrox too.
Rangers now have Gerrard, Flanagan, Kent and Ejaria all praising the Govan side and telling others how great a club they are at, which has to be very pleasing for all the wonderful supporters to hear.
Happy days are back again.
