View on Gary Doherty

Gary Doherty could make a huge impact on the Premiership next year if given a chance. The Republic of Ireland Center Forward has bags of potential and showed us what he can do when he almost scored on his home debut after seeing his shot rebound of the post against Sunderland. He made his debut at Old Trafford but failed to make any major impact on the game which was already lost! 

Gary can also play as a central defender making him a key play in the squad. His big build and eye for goal is always one to be reckoned with and Gary can certainly feel hard done by if he doesn't break into the first team next year!
