Glasgow Rangers manager Steven Gerrard has hinted at new signings following the Gers’ win against Galatasaray in the Europa League.
In the build-up to the clash, the former Liverpool captain said that the club’s ability to bring in new players would depend on whether they progressed in European competition. Fortunately, they did just that, beating the Turkish giants 2-1 to progress to the group stages.
Speaking to Rangers TV following the match, Gerrard continued to tease new arrivals. He said:
“It’s very important, European football, but for me, it’s about success in May, that’s the most important thing. But, if we keep performing like we did tonight and keep moving this group of players forward and adding the right players to it, maybe we can.”
The Gers have been busy during this transfer window, bringing in no less than seven senior players on permanent deals, but Gerrard has made it particularly clear that he wants to bring in another midfielder. There is no doubt that making the next round of the competition provides the 54-time Scottish champions with a financial boost – they will now receive at least €2.92m (£2.65m) for reaching this stage of the competition, and that is without including TV money.
How many more signings do Rangers need?
From a sporting point of view, it is massively important that Gerrard brings in the faces he needs – whilst he has been able to get away with two seasons without a trophy, he surely won’t be able to go a third and stay in the job. He does not have much time to complete his deals, and as such the Gers supporters should expect a busy few days ahead.
