Opinion: Steven Gerrard should pull out all the stops to get Liverpool man to Ibrox

With Glasgow Rangers already having one eye on potential summer recruits, Steven Gerrard should look towards his former club Liverpool.

Would versatile star James Milner consider joining the Ger to help Gerrard for a couple of seasons, before he becomes a manager himself?

They don’t makeplayers like Milner anymore – he is an outright winner, a leader and a one-off special character.

Very few professionals posses the bulldog attitude and leadership required of the extraordinary Milner, who could be a revelation at Rangers.

The veteran joined Liverpool in 2015 on a free transfer after five years at Man City, and within weeks, was announced as vice captain.

The 34-year-old tenacious tackler has featured in a massive 209 games since joining the Reds and remains a vital part of Jurgan Klopp’s squad.

This versatile talent can play to a high Premier League standard as a full-back, midfielder, or as a winger, and has done it often for the Anfield club. 

Not long ago, teams had on-field captains who acted like managers to rally their teams to come back from going further behind, and into winning important matches to save dropping points.

John Greig, Terry Butcher, Richard Gough, Martin O’Neil, Roy Keane, Patrick Vieira, Steven Gerrard, Jamie Carragher, John Terry and Gary Neville are some of those other captains.

However, given the talent in the Liverpool squad, Milner’s chances of regular action are starting to wane.

I get the impression that the Liverpool man would be a huge asset in the Rangers dressing room, because he’s there to give advice and guidance to young players.

Milner could be the difference between Rangers winning title 55, and Celtic winning 10-in-a-row.
