Ex-Rangers star Greg Docherty is one player many Ibrox fans feel manager Steven Gerrard could’ve given a better chance at Ibrox.

The athletic midfielder is a boyhood bluenose and ever since moving to the club in the January of 2018 things never quite happened for him.

After a loan move with Shrewsbury – where he won the League One club’s Player of the Year award – Docherty was sent out on loan to Hibs.

On both occasions, he impressed but far from work his way back into Rangers’ plans the midfielder was sold for a reported £350k to Hull City [STV].

It has proven to be a masterstroke for the League One club with the Tigers earning promotion and now one point away from being crowned Champions.

Docherty, 24, has played a hugely significant role for Grant McCann’s side, playing 42 League One games, scoring five goals, and laying on four assists from midfield.

According to the Daily Record, such has been Docherty’s impressive performances he is even in the running for Hull’s Player of the Year this season.

Manager McCann has previously waxed lyrical about the “immense” player, describing him as a “machine” who can “just run and run”.

It’s an impressive return to form and it shows Docherty hasn’t let the disappointment of leaving his boyhood club define his career.

Docherty will be as delighted as any bluenose that 55 is over the line and he’ll also be celebrating when the club lifts that trophy on May 15th.

The midfielder has previously spoken about his desire to one day return to Ibrox as the boyhood Rangers fan has unfinished business at the ground he loves.
