Glasgow Rangers are on the march and they are well and truly in the mood to win multiple honours.
They are currently 13 points clear of Celtic and it looks incredibly unlikely that the Hoops will go and win the title.
It would be a remarkable accomplishment for the Gers, ending a ten-year period in which they have been utterly dominated.
With the transfer window just around the corner it will be interesting to see how Rangers think they can strengthen their title ambitions.
Gerrard will be all too aware what happened at the turn of the year in 2019/20. Alfredo Morelos struggled to find the back of the net and before this season he’d found the net just once in the whole calendar year.
Thus, he could potentially do with some added depth to ensure the same doesn’t happen again. A rather remarkable suggestion came about courtesy of Danny Murphy on talkSPORT this week.
Speaking on the radio station, he tipped Tottenham’s Dele Alli to move to Ibrox: “I thought maybe Gerrard and Rangers could persuade him,” he began.
Murphy continued: “He’d play every week, score loads of goals, get his confidence up. Maybe playing under Stevie would be something he’d enjoy.”
An English attacking midfielder with attitude, charisma and a cocky belief – does that sound familiar to you?
It could either be Dele or it could be former Rangers man Paul Gascoigne.
If you had the assessment that Alli wouldn’t join because of his reputation then you only need to look at Gazza’s time at Rangers and how he performed while still an England regular.
In Glasgow, he scored 39 times in a three-year stay from 1995-1998. At the same time, the great England midfielder made over 20 caps for his country in the process.
It turned out to be an international swansong as Gazza made the last of his England caps the same year he departed Rangers but he was absolutely superb for both club and country during those three years.
Of course, it’s difficult to tell how Dele would do but their personalities are very similar.
Teddy Sheringham commented in 2016: “He had that aura about him in Berlin that Paul Gascoigne had about him at the beginning of his career. It was almost if Dele Alli was saying: ‘Come and try and get the ball off me.’
“Gazza used to do that. It had a lovely feel to it – I was very impressed. You can’t coach that kind of mentality and self-belief. It was in Gazza and Dele Alli seems to have something similar.”
You suspect that playing under someone like Gerrard would only benefit the 24-year-old too, someone described as special by Owen Hargreaves. This could be a match made in heaven and Ross Wilson must do everything he can to bring him to Scotland.
Unfortunately, it’s incredibly unlikely it’ll ever happen.
