Rangers should target Matty Willock if Sean Goss is off the table


Rangers should target Matty Willock if Sean Goss is off the table

the pair used to live together when at Manchester United, could Rangers bring at least one of them to Ibrox in the summer.

Rangers have been in fine form recently. The Glasgow side are pushing their Old Firm rivals Celtic in the title race for the first time since they won their way back to the top-flight of Scottish football. This weekend, when they clash in the Old Firm derby, Rangers will not be written off from the start.

One player who has been key to their success is Sean Goss. The midfielder arrived on loan from Queens Park Rangers in January. The 22-year-old has been fantastic since making the move and Rangers boss Graeme Murty has made no secret of his desire to sign him permanently.

QPR however are not set to allow Goss leave in the summer. Ian Holloway sees the former Manchester United talent as a future star at Loftus Road and has made it clear, Goss is going nowhere.

Bad news for Rangers, but perhaps they can go for his former team-mate and flat-mate instead.


Goss used to share a house with midfielder Matty Willock when the pair were at Manchester United together – as reported by the Herald.

Willock himself is still at United, but is in fact out on loan at a Scottish Premiership club. Willock has featured four times for the Perth side since ending a spell at Utrecht in Holland to make the move.

The 21-year-old has impressed at St Johnstone so far and is a very talented young midfielder. A strong and mobile player with an eye for a pass, he is similar in playing style to Goss – who has become so popular at Ibrox.

Rangers would certainly be wise to keep tabs on the form of Willock in Scottish football. If the young Manchester United midfielder can begin to put a stamp on his time north of the border than Rangers might do well bringing him to Ibrox, if his old pal is as off limits as QPR say he is.
