Sheffield United legend slams Lundstram attitude after Rangers switch confirmed
New Rangers signing John Lundstram is a very talented player but he “downed tools” towards the end of his time at Sheffield United.
That is according to Blades legend Paddy Kenny, speaking exclusively to Football Insider after Rangers confirmed the deal on 5th July.
Lundstram joins as a free agent after five years and 120 appearances during his time at Bramall Lane.
He penned a three-year deal with the Scottish champions following United’s relegation from the English top-flight at the end of 2020-21.
Ibrox manager Steven Gerrard said: “He will add steel and presence to our midfield along with his quality.”
And Lundstram is a “very good player” but there are concerns over the Liverpool-born midfielder’s attitude, admitted Kenny.

He told Football Insider correspondent Adam Williams: “He’s obviously a decent player. Steven Gerrard wouldn’t be signing players who aren’t good.
“But if you ask a lot of Sheffield United fans, they’ve been disappointed with how he’s been towards the back end of last season.
“A lot of people weren’t happy with his performances and felt like he’d downed tools a little bit. That’s not a good sign.
“But it depends whether he can pick it back up again now and do it for Rangers. When he is a bang at it, he is a very good player.”
Lundstram made 62 Premier League appearances over the last two seasons.
He joined the Blades from Oxford United in 2017 and is a graduate of Everton’s youth system.
