Rangers legend Ally McCoist has urged free-agent Jack Wilshere to join the current Scottish Premier League leaders that parade Super Eagles stars Joe Aribo and Leon Balogun.
McCoist lifted more silverware during his glittering career with Rangers, winning 10 league titles, nine Scottish League Cups and one Scottish FA Cup during 15 trophy-laden years.
Wilshere, 28, has two FA Cup wins to show for a decade with Arsenal – both cameo appearances from the bench during the Gunners’ FA Cup triumphs over Hull City and Aston Villa in 2014 and 2015.
And McCoist, 58, is convinced Gerrard’s Rangers are ready to end Celtic’s stranglehold on silverware north of the border and says Wilshere should do himself a favour and sparkle in Scotland.
“If he comes to Rangers then great because he is a fantastic player,” said double European Golden Boot winner McCoist.
“To be honest, I just want to see Jack Wilshere playing anywhere regularly to get a smile back on that lad’s face again because he has suffered terribly from injuries.
“I hate to say this but, at 28, it looks as if his career could pass him by and Jack will be remembered as one of those guys with amazing talent who couldn’t fulfil his potential in terms of the number of games he played.
“I’d hate to see that happen to someone with Jack Wilshere’s exceptional talent.”
“Clearly Jack has suffered from injuries,” said the TalkSport host. “Well few people in the game know more about the demands of being a top midfielder than Steven Gerrard and his No.2 Gary McAllister.
“I’m sure Jack would benefit, as Jermain Defoe has done, from having his games handpicked without the pressure of having to play three games a week.
“He says he fancies a move to Italy’s Serie A or Spain’s La Liga and I totally get that. But would he be going to a club capable of winning trophies?
“Gazza enjoyed some of his best years of his career with Rangers, so why not Jack Wilshere? We’d have him in two minutes because the boy can play and Ibrox is the perfect arena for him to parade his skills.”Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
