Jordan Campbell has said that as many as four Glasgow Rangers No. 10s/wingers could be on the move this summer, whilst there could be new arrivals in four areas.
The Athletic journalist has taken an in-depth look at the Gers squad, concentrating on the areas that need work, whether that be incoming or outgoing. As he looks through how the rest of the transfer window could pan out, he has suggested that as many as four players in that one area of the pitch could be out of the door, whilst reinforcements could be looked for in goal, in midfield and up front.
“Assessing the 35 players available — including the top academy talents who train with the first-team at different frequencies — the rest of the window could end with:
- A reduction in the No 10 options (wingers), with potentially up to four leaving
- A back-up goalkeeper who is able to take over from Allan McGregor
- A central midfielder who can add incision to Rangers’ play
- A goalscoring attacking midfielder who plays off the right
- A striker who is a focal point and adds an alternative dimension”
Indeed, despite Gerrard already having made two signings in Ianis Hagi and Calvin Bassey following the end of the season, there is still work to be done. Wes Foderingham and Jak Alnwick’s departures means that there is no current back-up for McGregor, whilst the three other areas could all perhaps do with work.
Will Rangers win the league next season?
Given the current situation, it remains to be seen whether the Gers have the funds to improve in the positions Campbell has pinpointed, but if they do, it could make them a far more dangerous proposition for Celtic at the top of the table. Gerrard has already gone two terms without winning a trophy at Ibrox – he can hardly afford to suffer a third barren campaign.
