Rangers flop Umar Sadiq should be the first man out of the exit door this January

Umar Sadiq has struggled since his loan move to Rangers. Steven Gerrard should consider terminating his loan this January.

It is clear that Rangers need to add a striker in the January transfer window to take the pressure off Alfredo Morelos.

Steven Gerrard’s side have been relying on Morelos’ goals, plus contributions from the midfield, to launch their title bid.

But Morelos needs some help; the Colombian striker should not be carrying his team alone.

And in order to bring in a new striker, Gerrard might to need to get rid of a misfiring striker to make space for a replacement.

In the summer, Rangers signed Umar Sadiq on loan from Roma and there were high hopes for him.

But Sadiq’s time at Rangers has been a disaster with the striker playing just four games for the Scottish Premiership side.

The Nigerian youth international is yet to score his first Rangers goal and his last performance against Aberdeen was widely criticised.

Gerrard’s first act in the January window should be to terminate Sadiq’s loan and send him back to Roma.

This works for all parties; Sadiq gets a fresh start elsewhere, Roma get to see their youngster develop in another environment and Rangers can upgrade on him in January.
