West Brom are all but relegated from the Premier League and clubs will be licking their lips and preparing to feast on its carcass this summer.
Rangers could take advantage and bring Chris Brunt back to Ibrox after the versatile midfielder left when he was 16 after an overhaul of the youth system.
He didn’t stop following Rangers when he left for Middlesbrough – an article in the Birmingham Mail revealed that he still looked out for their results.
And now he can come back and play a huge part in getting Rangers above Celtic in the 18/19 Premiership table.
Mark Allen must recognise that he’s got a huge chance of tempting Brunt back to Rangers.
Brunt is out of contract in the summer – although he does have an option to extend – and would surely be tempted for one last big move in front of the huge crowds at Ibrox.
The alternative, a battle in the Championship, would not be as tempting.
Brunt is reportedly on £32k-a-week at West Brom and if Allen can swoop on a free they would be getting a real bargain for at least another two years.
Brunt can play in midfield or in defence and has supplied six assists in just 19 Premier League appearances this season.
His versatility and ability from set pieces would offer a lot to Graeme Murty and his experience would help gel a relatively new squad next season.
The no-nonsense Northern Ireland international could be the player that Rangers need to mount a serious challenge in the Premiership next season.
