'Serious step forward' – BBC pundit raves about Rangers new January signing
BBC commentator Rob Maclean has praised Graeme Murty’s January signings, singling out Sean Goss as a “classy operator” and saying that the business in this transfer window should cement their runner-up spot in the Premiership.
Writing in his column for the BBC, Maclean said that “Rangers’ recruitment, questionable in recent times, has taken a serious step forward.”
As well as calling Goss a “classy operator”, Maclean said that Russell Martin had “steadied the defence”, Jamie Murphy has “menance out wide” and that Jason Cummings offers a real alternative to top scorer Alfredo Morelos.
“The latest arrival, from Hamilton, is midfielder Greg Docherty who’ll add his special brand of energy to the side,” Maclean said.
Manager Graeme Murty will be spoilt for choice in that area when Ryan Jack and Graham Dorrans are fit again.”
Football Insider verdict:
Rangers fans will share the opinion that Graeme Murty has had a fantastic window and it’s great to get confirmation from a pundit who knows Scottish football inside out. The players Murty has brought in all offer something solid to Rangers and the manager has claimed that his business is not done yet. Rangers don’t need to take gambles with foreign players or get big names with lots of experience but maybe not enough commitment. The players Maclean has mentioned are all hungry and they’ve shown they’re committed to the cause already. The aim must be to cement second place in the Scottish Premiership and look to move on and really lay down a challenge to Celtic next season.
