Rangers must secure Allan Campbell as a Scott Arfield alternative

Glasgow Rangers need to find a back-up for the injured Scott Arfield, and with the club failing to land a genuine box-to-box midfielder during the extended summer transfer window, Ross Wilson can make amends in January.

What’s the word?

According to The Sun, Millwall have made a bid for Motherwell wonderkid and Rangers long-term target Allan Campbell.

It’s claimed that several other unnamed English Championship clubs, as well as Premiership rivals Hibernian, are also keen on landing Campbell and Well have given up any hope of keeping the 22-year-old, who has been on their books since he were a boy.

How much did Rangers pay to sign Tore Andre Flo from Chelsea?

Campbell has been in decent form since the start of the season, providing two goals and an assist in 21 appearances, via Transfermarkt.

Ideal Arfield heir

It could be a shrewd move from Rangers chief Ross Wilson if he sanctions a swoop for Campbell as not only could he provide cover and competition for the likes of Steven Davis and Bongani Zungu, he’d also be able to offer an alternative threat in attack going forwards in a similar way to Scott Arfield.

The Ibrox boss has subsequently confirmed that Arfield has suffered a serious ankle injury against Hibs on Boxing Day that has ruled him out of action for at least the rest of the month in what will be a huge blow for their title aspirations despite their seemingly unassailable lead at the top of the table.

In fairness, despite his absence, Gerrard’s Gers haven’t shown any signs of slowing down anytime soon, as they have reeled off back-to-back victories over St. Mirren and Celtic respectively, but fans will be well aware that one bad result is all it takes to trigger a downward spiral. After all, history does tend to have a bad habit of repeating itself.

Who did Rangers face in their first game of 2020?

Former Motherwell boss Stephen Robinson previously heaped praise on his “top class” young charge whilst his international teammate Ryan Porteous has admitted he has “a great attitude”, which is all the more reason why Wilson must sanction a move for him at all costs by any means necessary.

If Rangers can win the race, it would be a massive coup for Gerrard, as Campbell has a vast amount of experience under his belt and could be one for the future.
