Rangers manager Steven Gerrard has hinted at the prospect of recalling Greg Docherty from his loan spell down south, and revealed the Ibrox club are set to appoint a ‘Loan Manager’ to keep tabs on their players when they’re gaining experience away from the club.
Docherty joined the Gers during the January transfer window, and initially fared well under the tutelage of interim boss Graeme Murty, but new gaffer Gerrard decided the 22-year-old needed some experience of the English leagues, and he was swiftly sent on-loan to Shrewsbury Town.
Since arriving, the former Hamilton Accies midfielder has been one of the League One side’s most outstanding players, and his goal in last night’s 3-1 win over Barnsley was his fourth of an impressive campaign.
And it seems reports of his bright displays have made their way back to Gerrard, who gave his take on the situation during his media conference earlier today:
🎙️SG: We will have a discussion on loan players in the coming weeks, we are aware that Greg Docherty is shining down there, we sent someone to watch him recently. We are planning to appoint a loan manager to ensure we track our players as even when away they are Rangers players.

Do you think Docherty should be recalled by Rangers? How big a player could he be for Gerrard’s side?
