Opinion: Rangers should swoop for Peter Haring following recent form

With just one win from their opening four Scottish Premier League fixtures of the season and currently sitting in seventh place in the table, four points behind fierce rivals Celtic and seven points adrift of league leaders Hearts, Steven Gerrard should look to lure Peter Haring away from Tynecastle Park.

What’s gone wrong so far?

With 15 new signings arriving throughout the summer transfer window, new Rangers head coach Steven Gerrard certainly would have been expecting a better start to his managerial career than what has unfolded thus far.

The former Liverpool midfielder has guided the Gers to qualification for the group stage of the Europa League, but Rangers have still suffered their worst league start since 1989 for the Scottish Premier League giants, causing some concern around Ibrox.

Whilst Gerrard has some exceptional talent at his disposal, the addition of a young, creative play-maker could turn this mediocre start into a successful season for Rangers.

With morale undoubtedly low following their Old Firm defeat to Celtic earlier this month, the Gers should turn their attention to Peter Haring and attempted to sign the versatile Austrian middle man in January.

Why Peter Haring?

Peter Haring, who joined the ranks at Tynecastle Park earlier this summer, has contributed two goals and two assist in the opening four fixtures of the Scottish Premier League season for Hearts.

Despite only just joining the SPL high flyers, Steven Gerrard should be looking to lure the defensive midfielder, who is also capable of playing in the heart of the defence, to Ibrox in January following his impressive start to the season.

Ozturk in action vs celtic

Haring, who started his career in the Austrian leagues, would join former Hearts striker Kyle Lafferty at Rangers, who has scored twice in his first two appearances back at the Gers, if Steven Gerrard made a move for the 25-year-old.

While securing Haring in January may be tricky, having only just signed for the club, the midfielder is exactly the sort of player that this Rangers team has been calling out for – a tall, strong, dominant middle man with an eye for goal and bags of potential.
