Sheffield Wednesday striker Jordan Rhodes has struggled to hold down a regular place at a number of clubs in recent years – and Steven Gerrard should give him the chance to revive his career at Ibrox.

Rhodes has made a number of big money moves in his career but has never really lived up to the hype that followed him and his spell at Sheffield Wednesday has not worked out either.

With the Gers likely to lose Alfredo Morelos this summer and question marks over whether Jason Cummings will return to Ibrox this summer or not, Rhodes would be a perfect fit for the Light Blues.

The former Scotland international is a proven goalscorer but consistently finds himself falling out of favour for a variety of reasons before moving on – which is seemingly happening again at Hillsborough – and a move to Ibrox would likely act as a last chance for the striker.

The 28-year-old needs a consistent run somewhere and coming to Ibrox with the chance to compete for trophies could provide the sort of motivation to keep him hungry – as well as the influence of Gary McAllister and Steven Gerrard – as he enters a pretty critical phase in his career.

Another repeat of the same cycle that has followed him ever since breaking through almost a decade ago could see him end up on the scrapheap.

A deal for the striker would likely cost the Light Blues a sizeable transfer fee but with 95 league goals in 207 appearances in the Championship, he is someone who knows the way to goal and could help the Gers finally end Celtic’s recent dominance of Scottish football.
