Kieran Dowell could be Rangers' answer to Ryan Christie

There is no doubt that Celtic’s recent revival has revolved largely around the form of Ryan Christie. The 23-year-old has taken his chance after injury problems and is in fine form for both club and country.

He scored the only goal for Celtic in a 1-1 draw with Motherwell yesterday and has been performing brilliantly. In his last seven games, he has scored six goals and assisted three. He has been a fine revelation and is the sort of player Rangers are currently lacking.

However, is Steven Gerrard now working on rectifying that situation?

According to The Mirror, Rangers are hopeful of bringing Everton loanee Kieran Dowell to Ibrox.

The 21-year-old England youth star is considered a top talent at Everton but first-team opportunities are hard to come by.

If he performs the way he has for his country in Glasgow, then Rangers might have their answer to Christie.

Gifted on both feet, a threat in front of goal and capable of playing anywhere in midfield, he might bring goals from midfield more regularly than the current Rangers crop.

Dowell could prove a crucial signing for Gerrard and Rangers.
