Glasgow Rangers have been nearly unstoppable this season, and this has seen players linked to teams outside of Scotland. Steven Gerrard has lifted the lid on possible exits, revealing he does not plan to sell any players in January but admitting that won’t be the case for long.
The transfer update from Gerrard
Via The Herald, Gerrard said: “None of our big players will be going anywhere in January. I’m well aware of the club’s situation and what we need to do moving forward.
“Of course I totally understand that at some point we will have to trade someone. I’m not naive enough to think that we won’t have to do that.
“But it’s extremely important that we keep our best players certainly in the next window and that they are here for the duration of the season. I think the board are aware of that and want that as well.
“So we are certainly on the same page. Moving forward, we are at a club where we need to keep active in terms of recruitment and bringing people in. But that also means that, at the right time, the right player might have to move in a different direction. We are well aware of that.”
Good and bad news for Rangers
Although the gaffer has come out and said that they will not sell in January, they might have a frustrating summer and may then struggle to build on from their possible successes this term.
All football teams can afford to lose players, but key ones like Kent and Kamara will be hard to replace and if they do leave in the summer, Gerrard would have a very daunting task on this hands replacing them with similar quality.
