Rangers icon Ally McCoist has urged Steven Gerrard to sign Jack Wilshere with the midfielder currently available as a free agent.
The former Gers talisman has backed Rangers to complete a deal in his weekly column in The Scottish Sun.
Wilshere is without a club after being released from West Ham on transfer deadline day ending a two-year-old association with the club.
McCoist thinks the man with 34 England caps to his name is in danger of seeing his career passing him by and thinks Gerrard should pounce.
He told The Scottish Sun: “If he comes to Rangers then great because he’s a fantastic player.
“To be honest, I just want to see Jack playing anywhere regularly to get a smile back on that lad’s face again.
“I hate to say this but, at 28, it looks as if his career could pass him by and Jack will be remembered as one of those guys with amazing talent who couldn’t fulfil his potential.
“I’d hate to see that happen to someone with Jack Wilshere’s exceptional talent.”
TBR View – Rangers and Gerrard might be absolutely perfect for Wilshere
The former England international has struggled really badly with injuries and needs someone to take a chance on him.
Wilshere has played 182 times in the Premier League during his career and is still capable of doing a job.
Gerrard played with Wilshere for England and he could be the perfect manager to get the ex-Arsenal ace firing once more.
Staying fit is the big thing with Wilshere but if he gets back to his best he’d take the Scottish Premiership by storm.
Of course, there’d be an element of risk in any deal to sign Wilshere with his less than spectacular fitness record.
Gerrard has proved himself as a superb man-manager during his short stint in management and that could see Wilshere thrive.
