Ryan Jack? Alfredo Morelos? Here are Rangers’ top 2 best players of the season so far

Rangers’ Top Two Players So Far This Season

This is a very contentious subject at the best of times! All fans (and pundits) think and see things differently and with clubs like Rangers especially, no two people will ever agree on one thing, given the passion of those involved.

Ryan Jack has been solid enough but still has gaps in his game; arguably he’s been no better and no worse than expected, since signing from Aberdeen. On the other hand, it’s a great shame that we haven’t seen enough of Graham Dorrans alongside him.

Daniel Candeias has been good to watch and we can’t fault the simple fact that Alfredo Morelos is paid to score goals and he has done. Declan John has been a real bonus in the side following a bad injury to skipper Lee Wallace and James Tavernier has been good on the other side.

Tavernier, in fact, should be making this list every time, though I wish he’d cut out some of the silliness. He’s not Gazza and shouldn’t try to be. So just a little bit more professionalism may see him improve by a few percent.

For me though, the following two stand out for a number of reasons, given their contributions to the cause at opposite ends of the pitch:

Danny Wilson

Not many people get two spells at Rangers and it seems Wilson is thinking of jacking it all in to go to America. However, he has been excellent so far.

His defensive (and occasionally goalscoring) contributions in vital games have not gone unnoticed by the management, fans and pundits alike and surely, the Light Blues would have been in a far worse position without him this term. I do hope he stays on.

Josh Windass

First of all, he’d be number one on a list of most improved performers at Rangers this season, with my main gripe last year being that he obviously had talent but not composure or a final touch when it counted. Those days are gone.

As well as some quality all-round play, Windass has scored some vital goals against big opposition from out on the left and that’s when it really counts.

Of his 6 goals and 6 assists in 21 Scottish Premiership games this season, 5 of Windass’ contributions have been against Aberdeen, Hibernian and Hearts, which have shown his quality and determination. Arguably Rangers’ improvement coincides with Windass’ best form. In fact in the three games now in which Rangers have beaten Aberdeen, Windass has provided a goal or assist every time.
