One major aspect of Steven Gerrard’s ongoing revolution at Rangers is the fact that the club will need to appoint a new captain.
Gerrard has disclosed, as reported by the Scottish Sun, that he has not decided who will get the armband, only that Lee Wallace will not be the skipper anymore.
People might well think that captains aren’t important anymore, but you only need to look at how important Scott Brown is to Celtic, to show that they still have a vital part to play.
An intriguing appointment as captain could well set the tone for Gerrard’s upcoming reign at Ibrox, and there seems to be two ideal candidates – Connor Goldson, and Ross McCrorie.
Gerrard was after Goldson for weeks, seemingly desperate to sign the player, and what bigger compliment could be paid than by making him the new on-pitch leader for the Gers?
On the other hand, McCrorie would be a bit of a left-field choice, but the Gers youngster looks to be the future of the club, and is set to be a mainstay of the side for years.
Gerrard and the likes of Gary McAllister will no doubt give plenty of thought to this decision, as it is one that they must get right.
Gerrard needs his on-pitch leader to be an extension of his personality as a manager, which is why his choice of captain will be so intriguing.
