Glasgow Rangers manager Steven Gerrard has revealed that the Gers are closing in on a new signing and could have an announcement soon.
The Lowdown: Gers slow in transfer market
The Gers enjoyed a magnificent term last time out as they lifted the Premiership trophy for the first time in 10 years – they didn’t even lose a game in the division (thefishy.co.uk).
A title defence and a place in the Champions League third qualifying round would suggest the Ibrox outfit need to make reinforcements, but so far only Fashion Sakala has arrived at the club (rangers.co.uk).
The Latest: Gers close to new signing
However, that appears like it may change soon. Speaking to Rangers TV, Gerrard had a transfer tease for supporters as he said:
“The recruitment lads, Ross (Wilson) and myself have worked ever so hard to identify the targets we want.
“The board and Ross know the players I want to strengthen us and make us better and give us the best chance to be successful next season.
“Hopefully we can go and deliver them. We’re really close on one piece and hopefully in the coming days we’ll have an announcement for the fans.
“I like to get them excited this time of year, they’ve been patient. There won’t be wholesale signings because the squad is strong and good.
“We’ve brought some good additions in six months ago so we’re looking for quality rather than quantity at this stage.”
The Verdict: Important
Of course, the Gers already have a strong squad which saw them win a major trophy and reach the round of 16 of the Europa League last term. However, it is vital that, even when they are on top, they do not stand still and instead continue to try and bring in players who can provide something to the team.
Are you excited by this claim?
It is unclear as to exactly who this rumoured new arrival might be, but as Gerrard said, the 55-time Scottish champions will have done their due diligence and will have looked down every avenue. Hopefully, it will be the first in a list of several strong new acquirements.
In other news, this Rangers man has received a four-game ban.
