How well do you know Glasgow Rangers' transfer business? Give our quiz a go to find out! To start off, how much did Rangers spend to sign Mikel Arteta from Barcelona?

The likes of Ianis Hagi, Jon McLaughlin and Leon Balogun have all contributed to the 55-time Scottish champions’ success this term.

The Latest: Gerrard pinpoints trio

When discussing the club’s best business this season, Gerrard picked out Itten, Roofe and Kent, who have a combined value of £16.65m (Transfermarkt). He told Sky Sports:

“In this game, over the course of a season, you always fall away for a reason.

“It’s either a dip in form, what’s going on on the pitch, or it’s a message to yourself and the staff that you may be a few players short and it’s about going into the market and getting your recruitment right.

“There’s no getting away from it, at times we were too heavily reliant on Alfredo Morelos, Jermain Defoe.

“I think bringing Kemar Roofe in, bringing Cedric Itten in, keeping Ryan Kent when there was real serious interest, that was big from this board.”

The Verdict: Big business

Indeed, the attacking options Gerrard has at his disposal have been vital to the Light Blues’ success. None of the Gers’ forwards have scored a huge number of goals individually, but between the five of them they have 51 strikes – everyone has chipped at different times. The arrivals of Itten and Roofe in particular gave Gerrard more options across the season to keep opponents guessing.

Will Rangers win the league next season?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Holding on to Kent in the wake of strong transfer interest was also crucial – he has been unplayable at times this season and has 15 assists to go with his 13 goals. Gerrard and Ross Wilson must bring in some more inspired signings if they want to maintain this season’s success.

In other news, many Rangers fans lauded this man’s performance against Aberdeen on Saturday.
