Still areas to address for Rangers after promising December

Still areas to address for Rangers after promising December

It is fair to say that the festive period has been very fruitful for Rangers.

Their demolition of rivals Celtic on Saturday put a cap on this. And also lay down a marker for the rest of the season from Steven Gerrard’s men.

Ryan Jack’s goal was enough to separate the two teams at Ibrox at the weekend but it was the desire and passion from Rangers that sealed the victory ultimately.

However,  as we enter the January transfer window, there are certainly areas that The Gers need to address if they want to continue their progress and fight for the Scottish Premiership.

The club may need to look to recruit more defenders just to provide Gerard with more options in that area of the field. Likewise, they may need to look for another striker to complement Alfredo Morelos. But if the Colombian leaves in January this is an area they will definitely need to find a new face in.

However, the most pressing issue for Rangers currently is the lack of a creative midfielder. Despite the club’s good run they are on at the moment, remaining in touching distance of Celtic in the league, they are still not particularly fruitful in front of goal. They have only scored six goals in their last eight games in all competitions, and have only scored two goals in one game once over that period. They simply seem to lack the players that can unlock Morelos’ potential and that is likely to cost them as the season goes on.

Luckily, Gerard can remedy that very soon and must do so if Rangers are going to break Celtic’s dominance of Scottish football.
