As Rangers battered Aberdeen 4-0 at Ibrox, most of the Rangers fans’ eyes were transfixed on Steven Gerrard’s side as yet another swashbuckling display heralded three points.

The former Barnsley star has made a big impression at Pittodrie over the last few seasons and played an influential role in the club’s 3-3 draw with Celtic last month.

The winger scored one of the Dons’ goals and was a constant thorn in the side of Neil Lennon’s team in what was a spirited display.

But whilst some fans might muse about the potential of Hedges interesting Rangers – could one young winger take the place of a frozen-out Ibrox star amid reports of contract talks?
