Rangers are within touching distance of second-placed Aberdeen in the Scottish Premier League table, and new boss Graeme Murty will be keen to ensure his first year in charge ends with a runners-up spot.
Celtic are strolling away with the title, but fans here in The Transfer Tavern have accepted that their rivals are far superior as it stands, and just hope that Murty can begin to claw back the gap over the next couple of transfer windows. Our landlord caught up with the Glaswegian bunch over a pint to talk transfers, with fans keen to see their manager continue his winter spending spree, following the quadruple loan signings of Sean Goss, Jamie Murphy, Jason Cummings and Russell Martin. They may get their wish, with The Scotsman reporting today that Murty has expressed his desire to bring on more faces this month.
Murty has insisted that further enquiries are being made into the possibility of bringing more players in before the transfer window slams shut in thirteen days time, with the former Reading defender’s words sure to excite his expectant fans.
Landlord’s Verdict: Rangers have an excellent chance of securing second-place in the league this season, and further additions to the squad will certainly help them to achieve their goal. The signings made by Murty so far are extremely promising, with Cummings and Martin particularly set to wow crowds at Ibrox in the coming months.
Fans will now hope that Murty can deliver on his promise of bringing in fresh faces, and build a squad capable of putting together an excellent run of form from now until the end of the season, beginning with a historical cup tie against non-league Fraserburgh this weekend in the Scottish Cup.
