Former Rangers defender Michael Ball believes that John Lundstram has the “drive” and “willingness” to play for the Gers at Ibrox.

Lundstram has previously been a target for the Scottish Premiership champions, who are looking to improve their squad and successfully defend the title under Steven Gerrard.

And the -born is now available on a free transfer after he was part of a six- party released by Sheffield United earlier this month.

Lundstram enjoyed an impressive first season at Premier level in 2019-2020, scoring five goals and adding three assists in 34 appearances to help the Blades achieve a shock ninth-place finish.

Do you think Sheffield United should sell Sander Berge this summer?

Yes

Yes

No

No

But the former Evertonian, who came through the ranks at Goodison Park although failed to feature for the first-team, was unable to replicate that form last term as Sheffield United were relegated, contributing just two assists in 28 outings.

And Ball told This is Futbol that he believes the 26-year-old has the right attributes to be able to complete at Scottish Premiership level:

“He’s had an up and down career for a long time. But he has that drive and willingness to do it at Rangers at that level, and he’s got the work rate to go with it.”
