Championship clubs scout Rangers midfielder Greg Docherty - club insider

Highly reputable club insider account, Four Lads Had a Dream, have claimed that Rangers midfielder Greg Docherty was scouted by multiple clubs during a friendly against Leicester City on Tuesday afternoon.

A mixed Gers side emerged 3-0 winners against a youthful Foxes XI, with Docherty on the scoresheet alongside skipper James Tavernier and Greg Stewart.

Docherty has been on the peripheries of first-team operations for some time, having last made a competitive appearance in mid-August.


Just days ago, we wrote about how the next month and a half leading up to the January Transfer Window would be make or break for the 23-year-old’s Gers career. Now, it looks as though there are several potential suitors circling.

The Four Lads Had a Dream account has asserted that there were representatives from both Championship and League One clubs at the game, with Docherty the focus of their attention.

It’s claimed that a loan move or a permanent departure are both on the cards.

Of course, Docherty has already proven himself a highly capable EFL operator, having picked up the Player of the Year award whilst on loan at Shrewsbury Town in the third tier last season.

He scored ten times in 50 appearances whilst with the Shrews [Soccerbase], but is yet to find the net in a competitive fixture for the Gers.

As a boyhood bluenose, the £675k-rated player [Transfermarkt] is bound to still be determined to make it at Ibrox, but considering he’s so far down the pecking order at present, it may soon be time to cut his losses.
