Liverpool are facing a battle to keep hold of a star youngster. According to the Daily Mail, the 17-year-old wonderkid Bobby Duncan is considering leaving the Reds after just one season. It is reported the former Manchester City starlet is concerned over a pathway to the Liverpool first-team.
He is said to be open to moving abroad as he wants to be playing senior football sooner than Liverpool appear to be planning.
This news should undoubtedly have Rangers and Steven Gerrard on alert. Not only does the Ibrox boss obviously have great links with Liverpool he has another advantage in any pursuit. Gerrard is, in fact, Duncan’s cousin.
Now, at the time of writing, there is no actual interest reported in Rangers for Duncan. However, it is clear to see why Rangers should join the race.
Bot only would Gerrard have the family connection, but Rangers could easily offer him regular first-team chances in Glasgow.
Considering his incredible season at Liverpool, in which he scored 25 goals in 33 games for the Liverpool under-18s, he would easily challenge for the Rangers squad.
It’s a piece of fantasy booking, but Rangers would clearly have a huge advantage if they tried to sign Duncan. Gerrard should test that theory.
