Steven Gerrard can squeeze more out of Ovie Ejaria at Rangers

Midfielder Ovie Ejaria has enjoyed a decent start to life at Rangers at it’s noticeable that he’s growing in confidence every week.

The 20-year-old is currently on loan at Ibrox from Premier League giants Liverpool and has a point to prove that he’s good enough to compete at senior level.

He’s a central midfielder with an incredible work-rate and has brilliant technical ability, but current manager Steven Gerrard can still squeeze more out of him.

Ejaria’s final ball is perhaps the main aspect of his game letting him down right now, which is why he’s managed just two goals and provided no assists in 18 appearances for the Gers.

But Gerrard is the perfect mentor to help him improve in the final third and his end product should increase if he keeps a calmer head.

Ejaria’s long-term plan may be to play for Liverpool, but right now it’s about helping Rangers compete for silverware.

He is given the licence to break forward from midfield to attacking positions and has the turn of pace plus quick feet to cut teams open.

The English midfielder needs to take his game to another level at Ibrox if he’s to have any chance of becoming a first-team regular at Liverpool in the futuer.
