Steven Gerrard has admitted that Glasgow Rangers could lose players this summer if they receive the right offer.
Gerrard makes transfer admission
The Gers have long since clinched the Premiership title and defeated Celtic for the fourth time in five outings this season on Sunday (Sky Sports). As such, there is likely to be plenty of interest in their players during the summer.
Speaking prior to that 4-1 Old Firm victory at the weekend, Gerrard admitted the club could sell players. He said:
“At a club like this, I don’t think it is a secret to say we will get attention for our own players. From a selfish point of view I don’t want any of my good players to go but the reality is if the right number lands then that decision might be taken out of my hands. I might not like it at the time but it’s where we are as a club.”
While this is perhaps already known to fans across Glasgow, they will not be happy to hear it come from the horse’s mouth. Unfortunately, while the Gers will always be in the hunt for titles, Scottish football is unable to offer much competition outside of the Old Firm – for example, Rangers are currently 37 points clear of third-placed Hibernian (BBC).
Will Rangers retain their title next season?
The Gers’ squad is valued at £170m according to The Athletic – there are plenty of players they could sell for respectable fees. As such, it promises to be a busy summer at Ibrox – Gerrard will just be hoping he has a strong playing squad by the end of it.
