Rangers: Fans split on whether another striker is needed in January transfer window

Rangers: Fans split on whether another striker is needed in January transfer window - Rangers

A number of Rangers fans have been discussing potential transfer market activity for the closing few days of the January window following a tweet from @4ladshadadream on the possiblity of a striker being added before Friday’s deadline.

Steven Gerrard has not brought in any new players so far this month, although the ‘Gers agreed a deal with centre-forward Jermain Defoe to turn his loan move into a one-year permanent transfer at the end of this season, as per Sky Sports. The 37-year-old, who has scored 16 goals this term, has started the last three matches in place of the suspended Alfredo Morelos, the Light Blues’ top scorer for the season with 28 goals to his name, although Gerrard’s men lost ground in the Premiership title race after Sunday’s defeat at Hearts.

As reported by the Daily Record, the Ibrox club had held pre-contract talks with Stoke striker Tyrese Campbell about a possible transfer, only for the 20-year-old to subsequently inform Rangers of his wish to remain with the Potters for the foreseeable future. With Mexican outfit Club Puebla announcing on Twitter [via @ClubPueblaMX] that Eduardo Herrera has joined from Ibrox, that leaves Greg Stewart as the only other centre-forward in Gerrard’s first-team squad.

These Rangers fans took to Twitter to have their say on whether another striker is needed before Friday’s transfer deadline, with the topic providing a difference of views:
