Confirmed: Rangers allow midfielder to leave Ibrox Stadium

Published

Shrewsbury Town have landed Rangers midfielder Greg Docherty on a season-long loan. 

The Scottish club have announced a deal for the 21-year-old to temporarily leave Ibrox to join the League One side.

Having sold Jon Nolan to Ipswich, the Salop were in need of a replacement in the middle of the park, with the young Rangers man the answer to manager John Askey’s problems.

Docherty made 25 appearances for Hamilton Academical before a January move to the Scottish giants.

During his time so far in Glasgow, the midfielder has made 14 appearances last term and was a firm member of caretaker manager Graeme Murty’s side.

Since the summer arrival of permanent boss Steven Gerrard, the young Scotsman has been made available for loan and has now moved to The New Meadow for a season stint in Shropshire.

Shrewsbury started off their League One campaign with a 1-0 defeat to Bradford City and their new signing could go straight into the side to face Charlton this weekend.

The Verdict

The Shrews are in need of filling the holes left by the outbound Toto Nsiala and Jon Nolan, who have both joined former manager Paul Hurst at Ipswich Town.

Docherty is highly-rated at Ibrox with manager Steven Gerard keen to afford the midfielder regular first-team football after a clutch of summer signings limited his involvement in the Rangers matchday squad.

That regular football will be away from Scotland for now, but it is a deal that works out for both clubs, with Shrewsbury the beneficiaries for the 21-year-old’s services.

It is a move that works out well for both clubs and the player himself.
