Rangers midfielder Greg Docherty has had a breakthrough season after making the move from Hamilton to Ibrox and forcing his way into a regular place for Scotland Under-21s – and the 21-year-old’s form should see him in the running for young player of the year at the end of the campaign.

Docherty swapped New Douglas Park for Ibrox in January after catching the eye with consistently impressive performances in midfield for Hamilton and has continued his form at Ibrox under Graeme Murty.

The former Hamilton ace has immediately made himself an integral part of Murty’s starting XI and has even drawn comparisons with nine-in-a-row legend Ian Ferguson after his performances in central midfield.

Most younger players are just making their first top-flight appearances at age 21 but Docherty has already made well over 100 Scottish Premiership appearances and could quite easily be a feature in the Gers midfield for the next decade.

If Docherty could add some goals to his game he’d be an incredibly potent threat for the Light Blues and as he continues to mature and develop it should, hopefully, be something that Docherty works on.
