With Glasgow Rangers buying 26-year-old Sweden international centre-half Filip Helander, should it convince Steven Gerrard to change his tactics?

He is a fixture in Sweden’s side in the qualifying campaign for the Euro 2020 competition and recently played against Spain.

I want Gerrard to play with a back three of Connor Goldson, Nikola Katic and Helander, with fellow new signing George Edmundson getting game time on occasions.

All three of these starting defenders are tall, strong defenders and it would create an imposing obstacle for opposition to break down.

This would turn Rangers into a more powerful and stronger team, plus extremely dangerous assets for scoring goals from free kicks, crosses and corners.

Rangers would be free to pick two wing-backs with a holding midfield player, to defend and also attack when the Ibrox club have possession.

The Gers were guilty of dropping points last season through unconvincing defending at times and reverting to a new system, with three central defenders, would make them more combative.

It would also allow the likes of Borna Barisic and James Tavernier to get on the front foot in the wing-back roles, while also give the Rangers midfield more licence to get forward.
