22-year-old midfielder to stay at Rangers despite transfer speculation

Greg Docherty looks set to remain at Ibrox with Glasgow Rangers for the upcoming season.

Manager Steven Gerrard has told The Scottish Herald that Greg Docherty has returned the club a different player this summer.

The 22-year-old ace was deemed surplus to requirements last year and was loaned to Shrewsbury Town in League One

But the midfielder impressed down South and scored ten goals for Salop en route to winning their Player of the Year award.

Greg Docherty dazzled in the Gers 6-0 Europa League qualifying victory over St Joseph’s of Gibraltar and Steven Gerrard, speaking to The Scottish Herald, asserts that the youngster has come on leaps and bounds over the past 12 months. But overall the youngster has not been a revelation for the Scottish club.

“He has come back a different man. He has matured a lot from his experience, going out of his comfort zone, living away from his family, living up to the expectation of being a Rangers player on loan.

“He won Player of the Year and had a real positive loan. I think Shrewsbury did a fantastic job with him. On the evidence of what I’ve seen since day one of pre-season, he looks a different player and a different person.”

Greg Docherty is mad about the Ibrox side and he will need to remain hungry throughout the campaign because, well, Steven Gerrard has a ridiculous amount of quality midfielders at his disposal.

If the Scot is going to succeed at his boyhood side, hunger is of supreme importance.
