    Greg Docherty

    Rangers boss Steven Gerrard had several big decisions to make when he arrived at Ibrox in the summer. A bloated squad which was jam-packed with underachievers needed trimming and the Liverpool hero wasted no time in moving players on. He had to as Gerrard brought in 15 new faces and that meant getting rid of plenty of squad players on loan deals to allow new faces to thrive. No time was wasted, with the likes of Mexican misfits Carlos Pena and Eduardo Herrera headlining the departures. Gerrard allowed Docherty to join Shrewsbury on loan (Image: PA Images Contributor) The mass exodus led to Billy Kirkwood being appointed as loans manager to oversee their development. Ryan Hardie, Liam Burt and Zak Rudden will hope moves away can lead to extended futures at Rangers but one name on the exit list raised eyebrows. Greg Docherty had only been with his boyhood heroes for six months before he was loaned out to Shrewsbury. The 22-year-old is an all-action midfielder and many observers believed the former Hamilton star would be the player who would benefit most from Gerrard's arrival. Not all loan deals are created equal - Docherty might not have been handed his big chance right away but the switch to England is proving a good managerial decision by the Ibrox boss. Docherty bagged his sixth goal of the season on Tuesday when he netted in the 2-0 win over Plymouth, with fans and journalists raving about his display. Gerrard is a straight-shooter and he waxed lyrical about the Scotland U21 star's undoubted potential and revealed last month he was delighted by his development. He said: "We will have a discussion on loan players, we are aware that Greg Docherty is shining down there, we sent someone to watch him recently." A loan spell in English football proved fruitful for Callum McGregor after he made a significant impact with Notts County during the 2013/14 season. McGregor has thrived after his spell in England. The Hoops star earned valuable playing time and netted 14 goals in League One - a haul Docherty is on pace to match if continues his fine form. McGregor's development has sky-rocketed since the arrival of Brendan Rodgers and something similar could happen for Docherty. The on-loan star has an engine which never quits and his stats over the past month point to a player who is getting better as the season progresses. Docherty is improving every week and is a vital part of a Blues team which has only lost one match since October. He has recorded 14 interceptions over his past four matches which would be good for a top-three spot in the division. He's also in the top seven when it comes to goalscoring midfielders. The midfield ranks favourably in long pass percentage and successful dribbles as well. The six goals have been impressive too - considering he managed just eight in 122 appearances during his time in Scotland. But there's more to Docherty than just the raw numbers. This is a player who is intelligent, ambitious and desperate to become an Ibrox hero. Scott Arfield and Ryan Jack have impressed under the new regime but doubts remain over Lassana Coulibaly's long-term future. Jordan Rossiter and Graham Dorrans' Rangers careers have been ravaged by injuries. Graham Dorrans has barely featured due to injury There is a chance for Docherty to come back and put his experience down south to immediate use. Whenever he returns - the Ibrox faithful should expect a more well-rounded player to the one which departed. There's been plenty for Rangers to savour so far this season but perhaps the development of Docherty could prove to be the most important of the lot.
