Brian Laudrup wants to see Rangers target Denayer in Lyon clash
Brian Laudrup thinks Rangers can get at Jason Denayer.
The former Rangers man has been talking ahead of the Gers’ clash with Lyon on Thursday night.
Having qualified for the Europa League again this season Rangers fans will want to go far.
To do that, they’ll have to have a strong start in the group stages.
Their first clash is this home game against Lyon, a game which will not come easily.
Steven Gerrard will have a plan ahead of the clash, but Laudrup makes a good point.
In his Daily Mail column (via The Daily Record), Laudrup has claimed that Rangers need to get at former Celtic man Jason Denayer.
“Lyon have scored eight goals in their first five games in Ligue 1 but the flip side is that they have conceded the same number.”
“I know the way the coach, Peter Bosz, wants his teams to play.”
“They have all been very good going forward, but the critics would say he hasn’t really won anything so far in his career and that his teams can be vulnerable to counter-attacking.”
“Jason Denayer, another ex-Celtic player, is a big part of their defence and also scored at the weekend.”
“He is a very good player, but I do think there are occasions when he gets drawn out of position and can be guilty of a little bit of ball-watching.”
“If Rangers can get their movement right they will cause Lyon problems for sure.”
Rangers will need to be at their best to overcome Lyon.
The French side are a fantastic outfit, although they’ve looked shaky at the start of the season.
Peter Bosz’s side have only won two of their opening five games in Ligue 1.
They’re yet to really find their rhythm and Rangers will have to take advantage of that come Thursday night.
Gerrard will certainly have a plan, though, and it will be interesting to see if he targets Denayer.
