‘Need a little bit more quality’ – Rangers looking to take 26-year-old to Ibrox: Opinion



Sunderland midfielder Dylan McGeouch could be set for a swift return to Scotland, after The Northern Echo revealed that Rangers are one of a number of sides interested in signing the 26-year-old.

McGeouch has made just 14 league starts for Sunderland since joining from Hibernian last summer on a one year deal, and is now attracting interest both north and south of the border.

According to reports, both Rangers and Aberdeen are interested in the former Celtic player, although McGeouch could also remain in England, with Championship sides Brentford, QPR and Blackburn Rovers all thought to be interested in a move for the midfielder.

It has yet to be announced whether McGeouch will be offered a new contract at Sunderland, meaning it is possible he will be available on a free transfer.

So, would McGeouch be a good signing for Rangers?

We asked some of our Football League World writers for their opinions.

George Brooks

“McGeouch had a disappointing season for Sunderland last season, but he seems like a decent player and could be a good signing for Rangers.

“He’s got a good amount of experience and he’s played in the Scottish Premiership before for both Hibernian and Celtic.

“Rangers would be getting him on a free transfer too, so that eliminates a lot of the risk.”

Toby Wilding

“This could be a good signing for Rangers.

“McGeouch’s experience in Scotland suggests a move back north of the border may suit him better than a move to the Championship, and Rangers getting a former Celtic man for free is unlikely to go down well in the green and white half of Glasgow.

“That alone could be enough to make this a popular move at Ibrox.”

Alfie Burns

“McGeouch has a good understanding of the Scottish game, but this wouldn’t be a signing that’d lift too many Rangers fans.

“The club are progressing nicely under Gerrard, but you feel what they do in the transfer window is going to be very important over the summer.

“Surely Gers need a little bit more quality through the door?”
