Two young Bears are in the lower leagues of England. Both of them want to compete for a space in the Rangers XI upon their return.
Greg Docherty has been a bit of a revelation for League One Shrewsbury this season. His performances in the FA Cup even earned him rave reviews from England legend Paul Ince.
Whilst his efforts have earned him the status of a fan favourite at Montgomery Waters Meadow, Doc might still experience relegation in an incredibly tight League One bottom half.

Shrewsbury might be 17th, but they’re only four points off a relegation spot. The 22-year-old has intimated his desire to come back to Ibrox and make a go of things in the first team [originally Daily Record].
Jordan Rossiter has has mixed success at Bury. Despite starting strongly and with two man of the match performances in a row, the youngster’s side has struggled as things have worsened off the pitch. The club have struggled to pay player’s wages on time.
Vying for promotion from League Two, Bury have now lost three on the bounce.

 

Plenty of midfield competition at Ibrox

Thekey thing here is that both players are getting much-needed game time. But can they come back and force their way into Gerrard’s plans next season?
A lot of that will depend on Rangers’ transfer window, but the club currently has lots of competition in the midfield positions.

More than that, the likes of Glen Kamara, Ryan Jack and Ross McCrorie are similar players in their position. Gerrard even intimated his desire to sign up Lassana Coulibaly on a permanent deal [originally Daily Record].
Whilst both might have ambitions to earn a space in the side, they’ll have plenty of competition. I guess earning the spot is what’ll decide if they have it in them to make it at Ibrox.
