CHARLIE MILLER reckons Rangers boss Steven Gerrard will have to trim his midfield numbers.

The Light Blues boss has added Joe Aribo and Steven Davis to his ranks this summer as he prepares for the new campaign.

The likes of Graham Dorrans, Jason Holt and Jordan Rossiter were all left out of the squad for the training camp in Portugal, but Greg Docherty was involved after returning from Shrewsbury.

With Ryan Jack, Scott Arfield, Glen Kamara and Ross McCrorie also on the books, as well as utility men Andy Halliday and Matt Polster, Gerrard is not short of options in the middle of the park.

The 39-year-old will speak to McCrorie to discuss his plans for next term and nine-in-a-row legend Miller said: “He is not the most creative of players but he has shown he can handle the big occasions. The manager always seemed to go with him against Aberdeen, Celtic and in the European games.

“He clearly trusts him to do that holding midfield role although when you are playing the lesser teams then there isn’t the same need for a defensive midfielder.

“I feel for him because he never lets you down and maybe he might need to go on loan to get regular game time.

“I think he will have to free up some cash by getting rid of a few or sending them out on loan.

“Greg Docherty and Jordan Rossiter both did well last season when they went down south.

“They will have benefitted from playing regular football every week. But, will there be a place for them next season?

“Dorrans is another player we have forgotten about. He has been unlucky with injury and if he is back to his best then I would definitely keep him.”
