According to a report from Record, ex-West Ham midfielder Jack Wilshere has his heart set on playing for Steven Gerrard at Rangers.

The 28-year-old injury-prone crock experienced a woeful two-year spell at the London Stadium with the Hammers.

He was hardly ever fit and made just 18 appearances for West Ham.

Wilshere had his contract terminated in east London by mutual consent last month. And the former Arsenal man has been looking for a new club ever since.

Record claims that the two-time FA Cup winner has hit heart set on a move to Ibrox to play for Rangers.

But with Steven Gerrard’s insistence on energy, hard work and dynamism, is Wilshere living in cloud cuckoo land?

The Gers boss has instilled a real hard working team ethic since he took over at Ibrox.

Rangers have closed the gap on Celtic not just with smart, quality additions but also with a certain kind of industrious ethos that every single player has bought into.

 

Rangers and Wilshere a mismatch?

There has to be question marks regarding whether Wilshere has the fitness levels needed to play for Gerrard’s side.

His injury problems are well documented. But even when the 28-year-old was fit, he was hardly the dynamic, energetic central midfielder that would suit Rangers’ playing style.

Wilshere hasn’t stopped telling everyone how much he has to offer since he left West Ham.

The only way for him to prove that is to join a new club and let his football do the talking.

It is highly doubtful that the 34-capped England international would be a good fit for Rangers, however.

There was a time when the midfielder was one of the most highly rated young players in world football. Those days are long gone, however.

Wilshere having ambition and belief in his own ability is obviously a good thing. But all we can say to Rangers fans is good luck if the 28-year-old makes the move to Ibrox.
