Op­tions please Ger­rard

Evening Telegraph (First Edition) - - Health -

RANGERS man­ager Steven Ger­rard is ex­cited about the tac­ti­cal pos­si­bil­i­ties his in­creased at­tack­ing op­tions have opened up.

Ger­rard had to rely on Al­fredo More­los and Kyle Laf­ferty up front be­fore the Jan­uary trans­fer win­dow al­lowed him to sign Jer­main Defoe and bring Ryan Hardie back from a loan spell at Liv­ingston.

Ger­rard said: “We’ve tried cer­tain things with the way we play. Jer­main gives us the op­tion of, ob­vi­ously, play­ing two up front, it gives us that lux­ury.

“Kyle also does that so we can go with a tar­get man and a smaller guy around him.

“Ryan Hardie has come into the pic­ture so it has been nice to work with four qualit y for wards. We haven’t had that lux­ury and that’s been re­ally nice and a big pos­i­tive. We’ve only re­ally had one or two ways of play­ing.”
