The transfer window is yet to officially open in Scotland for another few weeks, but that hasn’t stopped Steven Gerrard from going full-steam-ahead into the market.
The Rangers manager has already secured three deals, with Steven Davis’ loan deal becoming permanent this summer and both Jack Hastie and Jordan Jones joining he Glaswegian club on pre-contracts, and more are expected to follow.
According to Football Insider, the club are set to announce the signings of three new players in the form of Birmingham City attacker Greg Stewart, Oldham Athletic prospect George Edmundson, and Liverpool attacker Sheyi Ojo on loan, and these signings are a serious sign of intent from Gerrard.
With Celtic claiming their third domestic treble in a row, Rangers are in a race to close the gap on their city rivals and assert themselves as the top dog in Scotland again, and these signings will more than help Gerrard reach that aim of toppling the Hoops.
Stewart has proven this season in the Scottish Premiership to be a reliable stream of goals and assists, scoring 10 and assisting 10, and both Edmundson and Ojo will add a spark of excitement and security for the future, with the Oldham defender likely to man the Rangers defence for years to come and the Liverpool winger aiming to emulate what Ryan Kent achieved in Glasgow.
Gerrard has laid the benchmark down of what he wants his team to achieve next season, and in these three news players heading north of the border, Rangers stand in a good position to make next season one hell of an entertaining one.
Rangers fans, will Gerrard make more deals this summer? Let us know!
