Why Max Lowe is exactly what Rangers need

Max Lowe, 22 spent the 2018/19 season on loan at Aberdeen from English club Derby County, the left back impressed in Scotland with many raving about the young man. Numerous stellar performances at Aberdeen won Lowe the players’ player of the year award against the likes of, Sam Cosgrove, Lewis Ferguson and Gary Mackay-Stevens.

In terms of Rangers’ left back situation they’re a little lacklustre, Borna Barisic who arrived from Osijek was the mainstay in the left back position starting the season strongly with 7 assists in 14 games he quickly asserted himself in the team. Unfortunately for Barisic he suffered an injury which forced him out the team for some time where Jon Flanagan (originally a right back) and Andy Halliday filled the gap. After his return Barisic was reinstated in the team however struggled to find his form putting in a number of poor performances against big teams which saw him axed from the squad for Jon Flanagan. 

It looks like Borna Barisic will be leaving Rangers in the summer with Andy Halliday possibly following him so with only Jon Flanagan the club will have to strengthen in that department and Max Lowe is definitely the best candidate to fill the gap. Rangers will however have to battle the dons to Lowes’ signature and a large fee may be the asking price for the promising youngster.
