England U21 midfielder Ronaldo Vieira might have just earned some interest from new Rangers boss Steven Gerrard, after the youngster scored a sublime goal during the Toulon Tournament yesterday.
Gerrard is currently in France as part of his Uefa Pro-Licence and was spotted in the stands as England romped to a 4-0 victory over Qatar.
Chelsea star Tammy Abraham and Newcastle striker Adam Armstrong were amongst the goalscorers for Aidy Borthroyd’s team as they dominated proceedings.
However, it was Vieira’s long-distance strike which really stood out:

Vieira currently plays for English Championship side Leeds United, having moved to Elland Road from Benfica in 2015.
It’s probably too much of a jump to link Rangers with a move for the 21-year-old just yet… but it’s surely encouraging for Gers fans to see young players stepping up to the plate with their manager watching on.
Gerrard spoke to the press during his trip, admitting it could offer him an opportunity to scout some new additions.
“There’s a level of footballer here which of course would interest me.
“I’m on the Pro- Licence course, which is the last course in terms of being qualified.
“While here I want to kill two birds with one stone.”
Definitely exciting times at Ibrox!
