Glasgow Rangers have been told who they should be looking to bring to Ibrox during the current January transfer window…
“I think Michael Beale has spoken about it that the central midfield area is one he wants to strengthen. He’s lost Stevie Davis and it’s not ideal but I wouldn’t be rushing in and just grabbing players for the sake of it, especially in January.
“Michael Beale has spoken about it like I’ve said before and I think John has been at Rangers before and knows and has been brought up on it. He is a different player from the one that left Rangers but people like that would be on my radar.”
Ross Wilson struck gold for Rangers in the summer of 2021 as he brought John Lundstram in from Sheffield United on a free transfer and he could now repeat that masterclass by reuniting him with his former teammate Fleck.
The Blades midfielder is a creative player whose invention on the ball would provide a big lift to Michael Beale’s team when they are attempting to break down low blocks.
Meanwhile, no Rangers central midfielder with more than one start has averaged more than 1.1 key passes per game and this suggests that the Scotland international would be an upgrade on Beale’s current options in that regard.
The £23k-per-week gem has averaged a Sofascore rating of 6.95 across 11 appearances in the second tier of English football this term, a score that only Lundstram (7.13) can beat out of his positional peers at Ibrox.
This indicates that he has the potential to make the switch to Scotland and be a useful player for Beale in the Premiership if he is able to adapt to playing back in his home country.
Therefore, Rangers could repeat their Lundstram masterclass by using Boyd’s advice to pursue a deal to sign Fleck before the end of the month.
