Rangers have secured their first summer signing with a pre-contract agreement for Kieran Dowell from Norwich City. However, the move has not impressed Ibrox Noise, who believes that Dowell falls short of the level required to take Rangers forward.
The 25-year-old attacking midfielder passed his medical last night and will join Rangers this summer after deciding to leave Carrow Road in favour of Ibrox.
Dowell’s record is decent but he spent most of his career in the Championship, making just 21 appearances in the Premier League. With only one goal and one assist during those outings, it remains to be seen whether he can make an impact at Rangers. While Beale has signed an above-average playmaker, there are concerns about his ability to compete at senior level.
Despite these reservations, Dowell did earn 16 caps at U21 level for England which is impressive. Nevertheless, Ibrox Noise maintains that Rangers need players who have experience playing in the Premier League if they want to improve as a team. Although Todd Cantwell was once valued at £50M by Norwich City, Dowell never rose higher than £2M.
