A number of Rangers fans on Twitter have pleaded with the club to strengthen the first team squad between now and the end of the January transfer window. With just over a week remaining before the transfer deadline, the Ibrox outfit have not made any new signings so far this month.
The only additions to the squad have come from the expiry of loan deals for Eduardo Herrera and Glenn Middleton, while several players have left the club this month due to a mixture of loans elsewhere (Robby McCrorie, Jamie Murphy, Jamie Barjonas), the termination of a loan spell at Ibrox (Andy King) and permanent sales (Eros Grezda, Zak Rudden).
Although Steven Gerrard has said that there would be more outgoings than incomings at Rangers (as per BBC), and transfer target Tyrese Campbell is reportedly keen on a move to Ibrox (as per Daily Express), some of the club’s fans have still voiced concerns over a lack of depth in the squad. That sentiment may have been heightened when they had to make do without top scorer Alfredo Morelos (suspended) and captain James Tavernier (injured) for the narrow win over St Mirren on Wednesday.
The ‘Gers remain two points behind leaders Celtic and have a game in hand as they chase a first Premiership title since 2011, but these fans of the club on Twitter feel that the squad needs strengthening in the next few days to give them the best possible chance of succeeding in the title race:
I agree,were right in there in the mix,few players might kick us on,don’t understand why were being so quiet in this window🇬🇧

I would doubt that Ross Wilson was brought in & not allowed to put his stamp on things in this transfer window. I’d think he’s been told we need to off load 1st but there is scope for maybe a loan signing or 2 in this window. Another striker & winger a must.

We need a few players but feel we won’t bring anyone in. The DoF likes to balance the books before he buys!!

Glad we got the win, but games like that when we're needing to rotate because of injuries and suspensions definitely exposes the lack of depth we have.
Positive is that Gerrard will have noticed that too. Definitely needing to make more than one signing.

It is what I fear that will cost us the league this season.

We need at least 1 quality addition to create for us….number 10 or RW is a must imo

Rangers fans, do you think Gerrard needs to make a signing or two before the transfer window closes? Which areas (if any) are in most urgent need of strengthening? Join in the discussion by commenting below!
