Joey Veerman: Rangers linked target could be the perfect fit

Joey Veerman could be the right fit for Rangers as Giovanni van Bronckhorst looks to shape the playing squad to fit his ideologies.

The Heerenveen player, who was linked with a £7m move to Rangers in the summer could be the player van Bronckhorst needs to replace the likes of Steven Davis and Scott Arfield in the team as their current contracts expire next summer.

The 23-year-old starred for Heerenveen as they drew 1-1 with Dutch Giants PSV in the Eredivisie on Sunday and they currently languish in mid-table.

What is even more impressive is the young midfielder has a total of six assists in 14 matches played this season. In the Rangers squad, Only James Tavernier with 13 has a higher number of assists.

The Joey Veerman creative spark could be vital; although Ianis Hagi and Ryan Kent are two of the club’s prized assets, they have only registered a mere three assists between them for Rangers so far this campaign.

For the money that the Ibrox side has spent on both these talents, the stats don’t lie, we need another creative spark.

The young Dutchman fits the bill perfectly, and he was reportedly upset at a proposed move to AZ Alkmaar falling through in the summer, suggesting that he wants to leave his current club.

With van Bronckhorst at the helm, this could prove to be good news for the midfielder, who on the basis of his performances this season and ability, would slot straight into the Rangers’ first team.

Meanwhile, the Rangers manager has continued a proud record after the recent 3-1 victory over Livingston.
