Rangers can solve problem position by landing Greg Taylor

The 21-year-old made his first Scotland start on Tuesday night.

Rangers will head into the 2019/20 campaign optimistic at what can be achieved under Steven Gerrard’s management.

The ex-Liverpool midfielder enjoyed a decent first season in management and the challenge for him next season is to end the club’s long wait for a trophy.

In order to do that he will be heading into the transfer market for some new additions.

Greg Taylor started for Scotland for the first time during their 3-0 defeat over Belgium last night and he could be an option for Gerrard.

 

The left-back spot has proved a bit of a conundrum for the Rangers boss.

Croatian Borna Barisic wasn’t overly convincing last season, whilst John Flanagan is more naturally a right-back. Lee Wallace has this summer moved to Queens Park Rangers, whilst Andy Halliday is a midfielder.

At 21 Taylor has already played in 99 Scottish Premiership games and the left-back has shown lots of potential at Kilmarnock.

A modern-day left-back, the youngster is decent at both ends of the pitch and his energy would be a magnificent asset for Rangers.

Gerrard has already raided Kilmarnock for Jordan Jones this summer and he struck up a fine partnership with Taylor down the left-hand side last season.

The Gers boss has shown in his year in charge at Ibrox that he isn’t afraid to utilise younger players and Taylor would also fit in with such a strategy.
