Rangers’ appoitment of retired Liverpool and England legend Steven Gerrard has grabbed all media back pages in Scotland over the last week, but the Glasgow club can show the Gers who the boss is in the league with the signing of ex-Rangers forward Ross McCormack in the summer transfer window.
Hoops boss Brendan Rodgers needs to show his former apprentice who is the boss in Glasgow, and signing a player who is on big money would make the newly-appointed Rangers manager realise just how difficult task it is challenging him.
Aston Villa are likely to ship out the 31-year-old in the coming months as he has not made a single league appearance for them all season after his reported bust-up with Steve Bruce last year.
The former Rangers, Leeds United and Fulham striker was sold to Australian A-League club Melbourne City, where he showed a brilliant performance by netting 14 goals in 17 appearances.
The Telegraph has reported that McCormack is earning over £40,000-a-week at Villa Park and he will surely take a pay cut in order to return to Glasgow where will be sure to win plenty of silverware and get some sweet revenge on Rangers.
The Telegraph reported that McCormack is getting paid a whooping £40,000-a-week at Villa Park and he will surely take a pay cut joining Celtic where he will be sure to win plenty of silverware and get some cold revenge on his former employees.
He left Rangers in 2016 when he was deemed surplus to requirement under ex-boss Paul le Guen before being released. Motherwell then signed him, and has since been involved in transfers worth excess of £20million.
Celtic may need another striker in the summer if Moussa Dembele leaves and Odsonne Edouard’s loan is not made permanent.
McCormack would be the perfect replacement as not only would he guarantee a golden boot next year, but it would be worth it just to see the look on Gerrard’s face when he bangs in a hat-trick at Ibrox while wearing the green and white hoops.
