Rangers have been linked with a move with Derby’s Craig Bryson – but he isn’t what is needed to win the title.
The Daily Record claim the midfielder is in talks over a January move despite already having a fairly bloated midfield.
There’s no question Bryson would be a solid addition but isn’t someone who can really open teams up.
Steve Davis’ arrival and a possible January deal for Glen Kamara adds to a squad already containing Scott Arfield, Ross McCrorie, Ryan Jack, Lassana Coulibaly and Jordan Rossiter.
Throw the injured Graham Dorrans and
trialist Matt Polster into the mix and it gets even more congested.
Had Bryson been more of a number 10-type player then it would have seemed like a more realistic option.
Gerrard’s side have struggled to break teams down at time and have been desperate for someone to create chances centrally.
But that’s not Bryson’s game and there’s little to suggest that at 32, he can suddenly change that and become a major attacking threat.
The midfielder’s contract is up in the summer and, according to the report, any deal would be a free transfer.
Bryson has made himself a big fan favourite with the Rams and has made 20 appearances this season.
Rangers would be better focusing on other targets this month in their hunt for title number 55.
