Rangers have certainly been busy in the opening stages of this January Transfer Window.
Should they manage to seal a deal for Jermain Defoe, it could be an incredibly astute signing. A glance at the the player’s career numbers shows that he has real pedigree.
More often than not this season, the manager has opted to play one up top, with five in midfield.
Alfredo Morelos is the main man, and with 20 goals already, he should remain so, regardless of any new signings.
Therefore, if he is to start, perhaps a shift to 4-4-2 is needed.
That may leave the Gers a little more open at the back. Yet, what an exciting partnership Morelos and Defoe could form.
The Colombian’s power and directness, alongside the Englishman’s guile and finishing ability.
A troubling thought for defences across Scotland.
Surely, if the Defoe deal gets over the line, in the matches following the winter break, Gerrard must adapt in order to try out this partnership.
Particularly at Ibrox, which has become a fortress once more, maybe it’s time to throw caution to the wind, and make a statement of intent, with a sackful of goals.
