Plenty of Glasgow Rangers fans have been reacting to comments made by Steven Gerrard regarding the possibility of new signings at Ibrox in the near future.
The Athletic‘s Jordan Campbell tweeted quotes from the manager (via @JordanC1107) from this morning’s press conference in which he said that the squad still needs improvement but hinted that there could be a new face at the club “in the next few days”.
Gerrard says he knows he has to improve the squad to challenge for the full season.

So far this summer, the ‘Gers have picked up Calvin Bassey, Jon McLaughlin and Leon Balogun on free transfers while also securing permanent deals for previously on-loan duo Jermain Defoe and Ianis Hagi. They have been strongly linked with a move for Amiens midfielder Bongani Zungu in recent days, with The Scottish Sun reporting that the Light Blues have agreed a £3.6m deal with the Ligue 1 club.
However, the ‘Gers released six players – including Andy Halliday and Jon Flanagan – back in May, while also selling Matt Polster to New England Revolution. Alfredo Morelos could follow them out the exit door soon, with Football Insider claiming that he is close to agreeing a £17m move to Lille.
Are you happy with Rangers' transfer business so far this summer?
Ahead of the new season, Gerrard’s squad still seems light in some areas – he has only one three natural full-backs, no bespoke right winger and just three centre-forwards (including the potentially exit-bound Morelos), as per TransferMarkt:

Exciting times. Hope it’s a good one!
“Rangers delighted to announce the signing of 16 year old ….”
I’ll go mental!

Not just the squad players that needs improving, these last couple of seasons the squad players haven’t had a chance to shine.
We could do with a couple of stand outs for the starting 11 and make those replaced in the current starting 11 squad players. RB, RW and 2 x Strikers
