Battling midfielder exiled from club seems like an ideal addition to new era at Rangers


A few years ago Newcastle midfielder Jack Colback looked to have a bright future in the game, but it has all went wrong since he joined the Magpies.

The 28-year-old midfielder has been exiled from his club, and spent the second-half of last season on-loan at Nottingham Forest.

He is now set to return to St James’ Park, but the chances of him ever playing for Newcastle seem very, very slim.

Which is were Steven Gerrard and Mark Allen should come in, and offer him the chance of joining the new era at Rangers.

A battling midfielder, who plays with his heart on his sleeve, is an ideal candidate to play in Scotland.

The Gers have been too quick to give up the midfield in some of their most notable defeats in recent seasons, and Colback would certainly rectify that.

As Colback only has a year left on his contract, perhaps Rafa Benitez feels like the best option would be to give the player a free transfer and he could move to Ibrox on a permanent deal.

But if wages for the moment prohibit that, then the option is always there to bring him to the club on loan for a season.

Colback in a battle for midfield supremacy with Scott Brown would certainly be an intriguing watch, and Gerrard and Allen should strongly consider giving the player the chance to reinvent his career at Ibrox.
