Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard has taken the reigns at Rangers charged with getting the club on level-terms with cross-city rivals Celtic.
Celtic have just completed another treble, and left Gers fans wondering how they are going to catch up with a Celtic team who have won seven titles in a row.
Whilst there is talent at Rangers, there needs to be a larger quantity of player who have top quality. Rangers fans will be hoping Gerrard uses his contacts to bring a better calibre of player into the club.
Gerrard has brought in a strong-looking duo from Brighton, in winger Jamie Murphy and centre-back Conor Goldson. Right-back Jon Flanagan has also joined up from Liverpool, suggesting Gerrard is indeed utilising his contact book.
Rangers start their SPL campaign with a tough looking fixture away to a strong Aberdeen side.
With that in mind, this would be the dream August for Rangers….
There are several positions Gerrard could do with strengthening before the beginning of the season. A real proven goal scorer would do wonders for Rangers.
Gerrard also needs to tighten up at the back and add some creativity in midfield.
If he can bring in two, or maybe three players before the SPL begins, it will be the start of a true dream August for the Blues.
Winning their three opening SPL fixtures will be no mean feat for Rangers.
Particularly considering their first fixture is away to Aberdeen, who pipped them to the post to finish second in the last SPL season. The Gers then turn their attention to a home fixture with St Mirren before again going on the road to play a relatively strong Motherwell side.
If Steven Gerrard can come through these fixtures with nine points he will have got his side off to a flying start, and restored some belief amongst Rangers fans.
