The Athletic’s Rangers correspondent Jordan Campbell has urged Steven Gerrard to use two players more often.
The journalist was tweeting in the aftermath of the 1-0 win over Ross County, in which Rangers took all three points thanks to Ryan Kent’s strike.
Campbell believes that the ex-Liverpool captain should hand more minutes to teenage duo Kai Kennedy and Nathan Patterson, giving them the sort of game time that Matt Polster and Jordan Jones get – the pair are 26 and 25 years of age respectively.
Jones has made 13 appearances in all competitions this season, whereas Polster has made eight – contrastingly, despite being on the bench last time out, both Kennedy and Patterson have only made two Scottish Challenge Cup outings this term as their first-team involvement remains slim.
The Athletic’s Campbell believes that, after the meeting with Celtic on Sunday, Gerrard must look to try and get the young duo more involved in proceedings.
You can see what the journalist tweeted below:
Of course, they have to merit their place but they are rated by the coaching staff and suit the style of play more than these players do.
It would also allow them to be assessed ahead of pre-season so Gerrard knows whether they are ready to be part of his plans next season.
