Deal between Rangers and Liverpool should benefit both clubs

Rangers have struck a deal with Liverpool which gives them priority on any youngster according to The Liverpool Echo.

What’s the story?

After Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard took his first manager role at Rangers, it was assumed he might try and sign a number of the talented Reds youngsters that he knew from his playing days.

The Gers have already signed former Liverpool full back Jon Flanagan on a free transfer and Ovie Ejaria on a season-long loan from Anfield.

A novel approach

It’s no surprise that Gerrard wants to make the most of his relationship with Liverpool and knowledge of their players, and this deal could work out well for both clubs.

Rangers won’t want to turn themselves into a Liverpool youth team but if they can get some talent to help out and if the players are getting game time in the top flight that they wouldn’t get elsewhere then it’s an arrangement that could benefit both clubs.
