Glasgow Rangers have until October 5th to make more transfers.
This might see manager Steven Gerrard feel like he needs a couple more additions to make sure that they stay in the title race until the end of the campaign, but an update from the manager suggests that any such wish could be tough to fulfil.
Speaking to Glasgow Live about the performance of his side in the 2-2 draw at Hibernian and the possibility of adding to his squad, Gerrard said: “I thought our midfield were really good today. I need those three to be really big for me in the coming games. We do need another number in there but unfortunately we’re not ready to add that number yet.”
Finishing 13 points away from first place last term would have highlighted that the ‘Gers needed to make more additions in order to pose a more serious challenge this campaign, and there have been a few signings made so far, such as Kemar Roofe and Cedric Itten.
However, Gerrard has stressed that he would like to bolster their midfield and, apart from a permanent deal for Ianis Hagi, who was on loan at the club last season, it is the only position wherer they haven’t strengthened and so it will be a worry if one of their starting midfielders gets injured.
Hopefully this will not be the case, but with the ‘Gers involved in four competitions, squad depth is key and so Gerrard’s comments about them not being able to bring in another midfield could be a cause for concern.
‘Gers fans, how badly does Gerrard need another midfielder? Comment below with your views!
