The five Rangers players set to benefit most from the international break

The international break is usually a period of great frustration for football fans. But for bluenoses, we’d probably welcome the break.
We’ve been hard at it since January and have stumbled our way through the second half of the season. That is, to put it mildly. It’s a chance for us to catch our breath. And we’re not the only ones.
Here are the five Rangers players who are most set to benefit from the international break away.

Borna Barisic

He’s already nabbed one for Croatia in a jersey worthy performance against Azerbaijan for his home nation. Vying to make the left-back berth his own he very much looks on his way to doing so.
Some top performances on international duty can help rebuild Borna’s stuttering confidence. He certainly proved himself the better option on this stage than a reported Rangers target in the last round of fixtures.

Eros Grezda

He’s featured once for Rangers in 2019, against Kilmarnock at the weekend. He needs minutes, fitness and confidence, and a trip to the familiar shores of home could do him the world of good.

Alfredo Morelos

El Bufalo is currently with the Colombia squad and despite not making the first eleven against Japan, he earned his second cap in a neat cameo. Very much the Rangers’ talisman, getting opportunities on the international stage will do plenty to convince him his future is at Ibrox.
This is an environment Morelos’ has always dreamed of playing in. He can only ever benefit from the expertise of the likes of Falcao and James Rodriguez. A goal in the next game in a few days against South Korea would have the Rangers hero in dreamland.

Steven Davis

The Northern Irish captain put in a superb performance last night as his country defeated Estonia 2-0 in their opening Euro qualifier. It was a top result for Norn Iron and a top performance by Stevie.
It could be huge for the on-loan Southampton midfielder. He’s struggled to settle into the side since rejoining in January and this bit of space might see him recapture the form which made him a Rangers icon.

Glen Kamara

The Finnish international started his Rangers career on superb form and looked like a classy option in the middle of the park. His star has somewhat faded in the aftermath of disappointing results but his talent remains evident for supporters to see.
He’s in the Finland squad for their matches with Italy and Armenia and some time away from basecamp could help the midfielder regain the composure we associated with his early spell in the side. The talented midfielder could well be a Rangers’ hero in the making.
