Rangers missed a trick with Dominic Iorfa

Dominic Iorfa could've been an amazing replacement for James Tavernier at Ibrox side Glasgow Rangers, if he leaves.

Alfredo Morelos dominates the transfer-related headlines, but he isn't the only Rangers player who will be linked away this summer.

Fans of the Ibrox side could and probably should also worry about keeping James Tavernier in Glasgow.

He doesn't get anywhere near the same amount of press as the Colombian hitman, but the English right-back is a massive player for the Gers and one who Steven Gerrard may have to replace when the transfer window opens.

And if Tavernier does find himself returning to England, what a miss Dominic Iorfa will look like being.

 

Iorfa, who joined Sheffield Wednesday for £500,000 in January, was linked with a move to Rangers prior to moving to Hillsborough [The Sun] and the 23-year-old right-back is tearing it up.

He scored one and set up another today as Steve Bruce's side won 4-2. In doing so, Iorfa now has three goals and one assist in seven games which, for a defender, is extremely impressive.

And if he's doing that at Championship level, it seems likely that he'd do far better in the Scottish Premiership.

In this day and age, £500,000 isn't a whole lot of money, even in Scotland, and if Tavernier winds up leaving then Gerrard will curse missing out on Iorfa.
