Opinion: Rangers boss Steven Gerrard should raid Liverpool again for Curtis Jones

Rangers boss Steven Gerrard should once again raid the Liverpool youth setup in January to secure a loan move for talented midfielder Curtis Jones.

What’s the situation?

The Express recently reported that although Rangers announced losses of £14m recently, there will be funds available for Gerrard to add to his squad in the winter transfer window, and the Liverpool legend is looking for a creative player and a midfielder, of which Jones is both.

The Gers made 15 signings over the summer, but Gerrard was critical of his side after their Scottish Cup semi-final loss to Aberdeen, claiming that they didn’t have enough quality to compete for trophies.

Two of those summer signings were loan deals from the Liverpool youth sides, with Ryan Kent and Ovie Ejaria making the move to Glasgow having worked under Gerrard at Liverpool, as Jones did in his time with the U18 squad.

Injection of creativity

Jones could be the perfect man for Gerrard to bring in then to inject some fresh legs and new ideas into his side after what is sure to be a busy and competitive Christmas period.

The 17-year-old was hugely impressive on Liverpool’s pre-season tour of the United States in the summer, which led many to speculate whether the Scouser would be given a chance in the first team this year.

The wealth of talent at Anfield though means the creative central midfielder has been limited to appearances for the U23 side and in the UEFA Youth League, where he has scored twice in four matches, but a move north of the border would allow him to experience competitive senior football at a high-level for the first time.

So, Rangers fans, would you like to see Gerrard make a loan move for Jones in the winter transfer window, or should he look away from his former club? Have your say by voting in the poll below.
