The biggest story in Scottish football this week is Celtic’s attempt to make history and win the Scottish Cup final, but Steven Gerrard and Rangers can steal all the headlines by making a move for Hibernian’s John McGinn.
The Gers have been linked with a move for the Scotland international in recent weeks, with the Daily Record reporting that Gerrard and director of football Mark Allen are keen on signing the player.
The report claims that Hibs boss Neil Lennon wants up to £5million for the midfield dynamo, but that shouldn’t put off the Gers from making the move for the player, who made his international debut for Scotland last year.
Making a move for McGinn would prove that the Gers mean business under Gerrard, and are willing to spend big money to put the Light Blues back to the top of Scottish football.
Not only would the move be a statement of intent, and it would steal Celtic’s thunder going into the cup final, but it would also be a case of the Gers beating the Hoops for a player they are allegedly interested in buying, as the Daily Mail reported in January that the Hoops wanted to buy the 23-year-old.
A move for McGinn would be laying down a marker for next season, and the Gers should make the move as soon as possible.
