Steven Gerrard has invested big at Rangers already and he does not look like stopping anytime soon, with two new signings reportedly in the offing.
As per Football Insider, Rangers are closing in on the signatures of Motherwell attacker Jack Hastie and Birmingham City playmaker Greg Stewart.
Hastie has been the subject of interest from a number of English clubs, but it looks like the Glasgow behemoths are going to pip them all this summer with terms apparently on a long-term contract already agreed between the club and player (as per Footballer Insider).
A Rangers source has also revealed that Rangers are in advanced negotiations to ready to welcome Stewart to Ibrox on a pre-contract and beat Derby County and Aberdeen to his signature.
Both Hastie and Stewart will be available on free when their contracts run out at the end of the campaign and this has alerted Gerrard, Rangers and their director of football Mark Allen to the potential of replicating the immense success they had with Scott Arfield and Allan McGregor this time last year, whose deals also expired at Burnley and Hull City, respectively.
The power and influence the league leaders have previously enjoyed allowing them to bring in the likes of Timothy Weah and Oliver Burke has given them a major advantage, but with Rangers seemingly on the mend and on their way up, there is no reason why they cannot flex their influence in the market and return Ibrox to its former glory. Starting with Hastie and Stewart.
It is time now for Steven Gerrard to lay down the gauntlet and prepare his players for a test of their resolve. No excuses for anyone.
