Rangers and Shrewsbury fans full of praise for Greg Docherty

As 2019 began, Rangers player, Greg Docherty, reflected on his 2018 on Twitter.

It was undoubtedly an extremely significant year for the 22-year-old.
He fulfilled a boyhood ambition by securing a move to Rangers from Hamilton in January. He then featured regularly during the second half of the season at Ibrox.
However, when Steven Gerrard arrived, Docherty found himself on the move again.

This time, he was off to Shrewsbury Town in League One, in order to develop his game.
He has clearly applied himself extremely well so far at New Meadow. His stats reflect well on him, with seven goals in all competitions and a number of assists in recent matches.

Yet, perhaps it’s the reaction of the fans that shows how much he has achieved so far. Bears clearly believe he has a future at Ibrox.

It wasn’t just Rangers fans showing their appreciation, though. Shrewsbury supporters seem desperate to hold on to him for as long as possible.

Clearly, being shipped out on loan hasn’t dampened Docherty’s desire to succeed at Rangers.
Yet, with Steven Davis’ return to Ibrox reportedly all but done, it’s extremely unlikely that Gerrard will recall the young midfielder in January.
Instead, he will be allowed to continue his development, with an eye to breaking into the first team next season.
