Michael Beale compares John Lundstram to Jordan Henderson

Rangers assistant coach Michael Beale has compared new signing John Lundstram to Euro 2020 finalist Jordan Henderson.

Lundstram arrived in Glasgow as one of the Bears’ top targets this summer and has signed a three-year deal at Ibrox.

The former Sheffield United midfielder has experience at different levels of the game and has been a Gers target for over a year.

Eventually, the Scottish giants got their man as he put pen to paper to a new three-year deal.

In his Athletic article, Jordan Campbell has waxed lyrical of the midfielder and explained what he would bring to the table for Rangers.

The piece also includes a quote from Beale referring to his work-rate and comparing him to Liverpool midfielder and Euro 2020 finalist with England Jordan Henderson.

He said, “That’s classic (Jordan) Henderson at the minute — someone a bit old-fashioned, who works the channels and is very energetic, up and down.”

Great signing

Lundstram comes to Rangers on the back of an underwhelming campaign with Sheffield United but we’ve seen enough of the player in the Championship and his first Premier League season to be excited about what he can bring to the table for us.

Beale has been rather generous in his comparison to Henderson as Lundstram is not as good a passer as the England midfielder. However, he’s good at breaking up play, running behind the lines and playing quick passes in closed spaces which gives his side a huge advantage going forward.

He’s also known to make runs into the box when there is space vacated by the striker(s) in his team.

Having worked under a manager like Chris Wilder who prioritises movement on the ball – we can expect Lundstram to give a different dimension to our attack.

He may not be the most physical of midfielders but he’s got an engine that will help the side without the ball.

Having watched him play against Tranmere, we can’t wait to see what he brings to the team in the next game.
