With the European transfer window and EFL domestic loan window slamming shut imminently, Rangers boss Steven Gerrard will be feeling the pressure to sort out any potential outgoings as soon as possible.
After conceding late to stop the Gers achieving an opening day win away at Aberdeen, things are looking good for Gerrard’s Rangers. They comfortably dispatched St Mirren 2-1 at Ibrox, and overcame NK Maribor in Europa League qualifying.
The side have seriously strengthened in terms of playing staff whilst under Gerrard. Signings such as Connor Goldson have entered the Glasgow club and already made a serious contribution.
However, due to the volume of top-quality signings, there are some players who look like they are hanging on to a squad place at Ibrox. The clock is ticking for Steven Gerrard to find a new home for these players if they don’t impress him fast.
With that in mind, here are two players who the Liverpool-legend manager should sell imminently if they don’t start performing…
Since his transfer to Rangers from Liverpool in 2016, Jordan Rossiter’s Rangers career has yet to really take off. A series of injuries has seriously hampered his progress at Ibrox.
Whilst the Liverpool-born player might feel a natural affinity with Anfield legend Steven Gerrard, the Rangers boss might be wise to utilise the EFL loan-window still being open to secure some guaranteed first team football for Rossiter.
Rossiter needs to impress Gerrard quickly, or he could surely face a quick Ibrox exit.
Alnwick is perhaps just wasting a wage at the club. When Rangers have Allan McGregor and Wes Foderingham available to them, it seems very unlikely Alnwick will be able to stake a claim for first team football at Ibrox any time soon.
Young stopper Robby McCrorie is very capable of being the third choice stopper at Ibrox, and would likely be a cheaper option than keeping Alnwick on the books.
