Rangers: Andy Walker unsure on Rangers budget

Rangers: Andy Walker unsure on Rangers budget -Podcasts

Rangers‘ transfer budget in the January transfer window might not be enough to facilitate an overhaul, according to Sky Sports pundit Andy Walker.

The Lowdown: Rangers’ situation

Michael Beale’s side currently sit nine points behind leaders Celtic at the top of the SPFL after they were unable to hang onto three points in the Old Firm Derby on Monday.

Their league position and question marks over the squad have left the club in a predicament where they will surely have to allow Beale to make wholesale changes to close the gap to their Glasgow rivals.

The Latest: Walker’s concerns

It seems that the Gers will be in a situation where they will have to wait until the summer to overhaul the squad according to Walker, who questioned on The Go Radio Football Show Podcast, what Rangers actually had the finances available to do this month.

(51:31) “I don’t know what money Rangers have available because every former Rangers player I speak to says that the squad needs an overhaul or transformation, you know, some big numbers coming in, some real options and that costs a bit of money and I’m not sure how much Rangers have to spend.”

The Verdict: Summer the priority

Despite their current position and Beale’s form in charge which saw them only drop the first points of his reign against Celtic, considerable backing in January looks unlikely.

Alongside the potentially cash-strapped approach to the window, Rangers have key issues with both Ryan Kent and Alfredo Morelos’ contracts to attend to, as well as the future of Malik Tillman who is set to also leave the club at the end of the season.

The summer gives a chance for those three crucial players’ futures to be sorted out and therefore give a bigger scope on where the priorities of an upcoming window lay.

The return of Ianis Hagi from injury potentially by the end of February at the latest, according to GlasgowLive, leaves spending potentially beyond their means to close a nine-point gap to a side that have only dropped five all season, surely not something the Gers will approve.
