STEVEN GERRARD is poised to call in the old pal’s act to prise on-loan Max Lowe away from Aberdeen.
The Rangers boss has been impressed by the Derby County left-back who is due to return to the Premier League contenders when his temporary deal expires at the end of the month.
Gerrard has been in touch with his former England international team-mate Frank Lampard about taking the 22-year-old defender to Ibrox for the new campaign, according to a report in the Daily Record.
Dons gaffer Derek McInnes is hopeful of extending Lowe’s stay at Pittodrie where he has spent most of the season.
The pacy full-back is highly rated by Pride Park chief Lampard, but he could be persuaded to give him another long-term loan period to give the player game-time.
The No.3 spot has been a problem position for Gerrard in his debut campaign in Govan. He has been forced to utilise midfielder Andy Halliday on the left-hand side of the defence and former Liverpool star Jon Flanagan played against Celtic on Sunday.
The ex-Anfield prospect is not seen as a long-term solution, though, where his best position is on the opposite flank.
Lowe has been one of the Dons’ most consistent performers this term and has shown up well in the games against Rangers in the Premiership and both Cups.
