Rangers: Van Bronckhorst will regret missing out on Jed Wallace

Glasgow Rangers’ summer transfer business was supposed to give the Ibrox side an excellent chance of competing in the Champions League while fighting tooth and nail with Celtic for the Scottish Premiership crown and other domestic honours.

Following three successive defeats in the aforementioned competitions, the decisions made are being highly scrutinised, with the pressure on sporting director Ross Wilson and manager Giovanni van Bronckhorst mounting due to the inability to add to the squad in the last few days of the transfer window.


The latest defeat, a 3-0 humbling by Napoli in the Champions League saw the Ibrox side end the match without any of their seven summer arrivals on the pitch.

Out of those seven, only Tom Lawrence is injured, and this is a major cause for concern going forward.

The Dutchman should have moved to secure upgrades on various positions in the Rangers squad such as the right wing, and he really should have secured a deal for a player shining in the Championship…

Van Bronckhorst should have signed Jed Wallace

The Light Blues were linked with Wallace, then at Millwall, back in September 2021. In January 2022, Wallace was looking to leave the Den during the transfer window, despite his contract expiring that summer.

The winger eventually joined Championship side West Bromwich Albion in the summer following the expiration of his Millwall contract and Van Bronckhorst will surely be regretting not making more of an effort to lure him to Glasgow.

Wallace has played in all of West Brom’s matches this season, averaging a SofaScore rating of 7.19. the 28-year-old has netted three times and registered one assist while averaging 55.2 touches per match, proving he is keen to get involved as much as possible.

Overall, the Englishman has scored 75 goals during his career and the Gers are desperate for a right winger who provides a goal threat.

Scott Wright and Rabbi Matondo, the main right-wingers in the Rangers squad have contributed zero goals or assists this season and this was an area of priority for the Dutchman to look at improving in the summer.

Will Rangers regret missing out on Jed Wallace?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Wallace has been dubbed a “crossing machine” after he delivered 14 in a recent victory against Hull City and with every passing performance, the likelihood of the Ibrox side ever being able to sign him drifts further and further away.

It was an opportunity missed by Wilson and Van Bronckhorst, and it could come back to haunt them come to the end of the season.
