FLW’s One to Watch… The EFL ace with a vested interest from Rangers



At the start of the season, Shrewsbury Town underwent significant change as manager Paul Hurst left for Ipswich Town.

John Askey would come in from Macclesfield Town but, despite his pedigree from last season, he struggled with the Shrews and was quickly dismissed.

Since, though, form has picked up with four wins in six as they look for a new manager, with the players taking the bull by the horns.

And, amongst that run, young Greg Doherty has really shone in his midfield role.

On loan from Rangers, Doherty has begun to show why he might be able to forge a good career with the Ibrox club if he goes back there after his spell at New Meadow.

Certainly, it seems as though the Gers are going to take him back after this spell and that will be a real loss to the Shrews when you look at his recent displays.

Earlier this week he won Man of the Match as they beat Plymouth – getting on the scoresheet in the process.

In the FA Cup against Salford, meanwhile, he helped Town progress past Salford City with a superb finish from a near-impossible angle.

He now has six goals and four assists in all competitions and the signs are there that the 22-year-old is beginning to flourish and develop into an accomplished young player.

He can ghost past opponents with aplomb and make late runs into the box, whilst he is just as capable of helping out defensively – such is the engine he possesses.

The Shrews lost Jon Nolan in the summer from the heart of their midfield and many, of course, were concerned about how they would replace his goal threat.

In Doherty, though a different player, however, they seem to have found someone who is showing that he can provide goals from deep.

And, with one of the best of his generation watching on at his parent club in Steven Gerrard, he is certainly one to look out for this season and in the coming years.
