Rangers have been linked with a move for Sheffield United’s John Lundstram but Dean Windass believes it would be a mistake to bring him in.

The Blades player is available on a free at the end of the season, sparking Gers interest.

However, former Aberdeen star Windass doesn’t understand what all the fuss is about, suggesting that the 26-year-old ought to stay in South Yorkshire.

Speaking to Football FanCast Windass said, “That’s not for me. I don’t get it. I don’t get it at all. I’m not being rude, people probably said I was a bad player, it’s just my opinion.

“But I don’t get that. I don’t understand why he’s not staying, maybe he thinks he’s better than Sheffield United.”


Premier League pedigree

Windass’ scepticism seems to be a little misplaced, although the pundit certainly has form in making controversial statements relating to Rangers.

There is a lot to like about Lundstram, and he is certainly a player Steven Gerrard should be paying attention to.

The midfielder is reportedly earning just £5,000 a week, which means the Ibrox outfit could easily attract him north with a generous offer.

He is both cheap and available, and bears similarity to Scott Arfield, who has enjoyed his time in Glasgow since he also signed on a free.

Arfield is now out for 4-5 weeks and a replacement like Lundstram could be very useful.

Although Lundstram and Sheffield United have struggled this season, the former Everton man thrived in the Premier League last term.

Despite it being his debut season in the top-flight he managed five goals and three assists, averaging 1.3 tackles per game (WhoScored) and a pass accuracy of 83%.

There is a gem for Gerrard to uncover, therefore, and if Lundstram is given trust and an important role in the team, he could prove an inspired purchase.
