On-loan midfielder Greg Docherty was reportedly watched by Rangers assistant manager Gary McAllister over the weekend – showing that the midfielder is still part of Steven Gerrard’s plans at Ibrox.
Docherty is spending the season at Shrewsbury Town and has impressed during his time in England.
According to the Shropshire Star’s Tom Leach, McAllister took in Shrewsbury’s 3-0 defeat by Charlton.

Docherty has been in fantastic form so far this season but won’t have been happy with his performance in front of McAllister.
The midfielder was subbed after an hour as Shrewsbury struggled badly against Lee Bowyer’s side.
Although some fans have called for Docherty’s return this month, it was never likely to happen.
With regular football on offer, staying in England until the summer gives the best opportunity for the 22-year-old.
The midfielder has contributed seven goals and seven assists in 29 appearances so far this season.
The boyhood Gers fan moved to Ibrox last January in a £250,000 deal from Hamilton.
Despite making a bright start to his Rangers career, Docherty struggled to keep his place in the side last term before being sent out on loan.
The midfielder’s Ibrox contract runs until 2022 and will be hoping his form earns him a place in Gerrard’s side.
