That brings the number of new faces at Ibrox this summer to five, not including the permanent deals that were secured for Jermain Defoe and Ianis Hagi, and journalist Andrew Dickson duly reflected positively on the Light Blues’ summer transfer business on Twitter (via @mrandrewdickson).
So… six new signings for RFC this summer (Defoe included). What else do they need? And where is there a bit of fat to be trimmed? Can't imagine Gerrard is very far from having the squad he wants now. Backing from the board has been terrific, as a group they look stronger.

He asked followers if there is anything that Steven Gerrard still needs in the transfer window, which prompted many ‘Gers fans to call for the manager to add at least one midfielder before the deadline.
That is despite Gerrard seemingly having plenty of midfield options to call upon, with Glen Kamara and Ross McCrorie as midfield anchors, Hagi capable of playing in a number 10 role and Steven Davis, Ryan Jack, Joe Aribo, Scott Arfield and Greg Docherty all operating from the middle of the park.

Which position should Rangers prioritise for the rest of this transfer window?
However, with one ‘Gers supporter feeling that they still “lack energy” in central midfield, he along with other members of the Ibrox faithful still want this position to be addressed in the remaining weeks of the transfer window:
We lack energy in central midfield we need to go from Defence to Attack in a split second and not give teams to get players back to stop our attack

Easy peasy now. We need a midfielder with dig that will score a few goals. Kamara and Jack are ok but not needed in many games. Then we are set to have a right go at them.

Think we need a deep lying midfielder that can play a killer pass and/or be a ball carrier. Love Davis but just not convinced he’s capable of doing that consistently for 40+ games.

Box to box midfielder. Someone with a bit of grit. I would also like to see someone who can play up the right hand side but I’m just being greedy. 😄

A midfielder that can break lines, either carrying the ball or playing killer passes

need some energy in midfield and that’s it I reckon.
need to get rid of a few players, Wilson needs to get in and sort this.
