Rangers have flown out to their pre-season training camp in Portugal this weekend as they look to continue preparations for the new campaign.
There were some new faces on the plane, including George Edmundson, Jake Hastie, and Jordan Jones. For another player on board, it may feel like he is a newbie again.
Greg Docherty was also on the flight to Portugal and faces a huge week in his Rangers career.
Last summer, Steven Gerrard decided it was best that Docherty headed out on loan for the season.
It came amid a wealth of central midfield options at Ibrox and Docherty eventually joined Shrewsbury Town in League One.
It was a very successful campaign for the player. He ended up being voted the club’s player of the season. This summer, as reported by The Scottish Sun, Hibernian were keen on a deal for the player.
However, it is clear that Gerrard is ready to give him a chance to show he should stick around at Ibrox this season.
Rangers still have plenty of midfield options and Docherty, therefore, has a lot of work to do to push himself into the first-team fold.
Highlighting just what he can bring to the table in Portugal this week might be the first step to re-establishing himself as an Ibrox regular.
