Steven Gerrard should take full advantage of his connections within the England international set-up by snapping up Wayne Rooney this summer, after it was reported that the hitman was in “serious talks” with DC United.
The Toffees midfielder is struggling to keep up with the pace in the Premier League and lacks the mobility it takes to get from box to box – a fact which has been noted by the Blues faithful.
But in the Scottish Premiership, the 32-year-old would have a fresh lease of life in a league which isn’t as competitive as the English top-flight, allowing him his swan-song to bow out in style.
Everton manager, Sam Allardyce is currently using the former hitman as a defensive midfielder which is proving ineffective as he would be much better suited to a role behind the striker.
It would be a positive move and one that would see Alfredo Morelos in his element – feeding off Rooney’s creativity would allow the Colombian forward to replicate the kind of form which saw him banging in the goals prior to the forward’s interest from China.
One big issue would be the money and Rooney would have to take a significant pay cut to stand any chance of an Ibrox deal.
But, he could be a part of something huge and become a legend in the last few years of his career and that would surely be better than making easy money in China or America – let’s face it, he doesn’t need the cash.
If Rangers can get England’s all-time record goalscorer to Ibrox and scoring freely as he did in the first part of the season, (11 before Christmas), then it would be one of the deals of the summer and Rangers would be roaring once more.
