Rangers attacker Greg Stewart has stressed that he is prepared to take any opportunity thrown at him at Ibrox.
The 29-year-old has not started a match for the Light Blues since October and has had to settle for being a fringe player in the squad.
He’s managed three goals and four assists in 18 games across all competition this campaign, but has not been a popular pick for Steven Gerrard’s starting line up.
The Scottish star is a versatile attacker that can play in a central striker role or in wide areas, which is why he provides great cover in the squad.
Rangers signed him on a permanent basis in the summer from Birmingham City and they are yet to really get the best out of him.
The Gers are currently preparing to face Hamilton on Saturday afternoon in the fifth round of the Scottish Cup, with Stewart insisting he is ready to make the most of any chance.
“I am ready to take any opportunity if it is off the bench or starting a match. In cup games, it is all about getting the win. There is pressure on you every day at this club so it is just another game to go and win,” Stewart said, as quoted by the club’s official Twitter account.
Stewart may not have had the debut season so far at Ibrox that he expected, he’s surely going to knocking on the door for more chances in the side and he did cate a cameo appearance off the bench in the lat game during the win over Hibernian.
With neither Joe Aribo or Ryan Kent in the best of form right now, Stewart should be given the opportunity to catch the eye in the cup against Hamilton and to lay a marker down.
It’s a time in the season where Gerrard needs to exploit his squad during a busy fixture schedule and some fringe figures need to step up.
