How well do you remember these Rangers signings? First up, where did the Ibrox outfit sign Michael Mols from?

Leeds United were said to be after the former (Football Insider), while the latter was even reported to have agreed personal terms with Porto (Antena 1).

The Latest: Agbonlahor confident for Gers

Speaking to Football Insider, Agbonlahor believes the Gers are now big favourites to the win the title after keeping the duo. He said:

“They had to keep hold of them.

“If they didn’t hold onto Morelos and Kent then the title probably changes hands from Rangers to Celtic. Keeping them makes Rangers favourites.

“That Rangers team is a good team but when you start to lose one or two of those star players, it’s not a great team. They need those players in there.

“For me, Steven Gerrard will be quite happy with his squad at the moment and will be thankful that nobody went before the window closed.”

The Verdict: Important

Of course, Kent and Morelos are two important players for the Gers. With 30 goals and 28 assists between them last season (Transfermarkt), they were instrumental in the Gers winning the league for the first time in ten years. If Steven Gerrard’s side are to be as successful this time out, they will need them at the top of their game.

Will Rangers win the league this season?

Yes

Yes

No

No

There will have been temptation to cash in on the two assets during the summer – after all, they have a combined value of £23.4m – but, for now, they remain with the 55-time Scottish champions. Backing up last term’s success is now clearly the goal.
