Alan Hutton has told Football Insider that he believes that Glasgow Rangers will make another couple of loan signings this summer when the English transfer window opens.
The Gers have already brought in three players, with Ianis Hagi, Jon McLaughlin and Calvin Bassey all joining on a permanent basis, but the Ibrox outfit will need to add more to their current squad if they are to win a first piece of major silverware since 2011 this summer.
Hutton believes that Steven Gerrard will make use of his knowledge of the English market, and thinks two more short-term transfers could be completed. He said:
“It is a great start for them.
“They can take a lot of confidence from that and what the did last year, how close they ran Celtic.
“Steven has used the loan system in England very cleverly before and I suspect we will see another couple of additions coming in once the English transfer window opens.
“I really do believe they will run Celtic close this year.”
Of course, loan signings would be better than nothing, but short-term deals are not exactly the best solution. Whilst that may give Gerrard the opportunity to bring in some top talent for a season, players are not always committed to the cause when they know they will not be at the club for more than a year.
Would you be happy with 2 more loan signings?
A couple of loans would arguably be underwhelming for Rangers, especially given they have been linked with some exciting talent such as Kemar Roofe of late (Scottish Sun).
Gerrard and Ross Wilson will surely need to do more than that if they are to reach their goals this season.
