McCall: It's 'possible' Rangers could make free agent signing, transfer meeting arranged

Rangers FC

Stuart McCall has confirmed that Rangers could look to make a free agent signing in the coming days.

Rangers manager Stuart McCall has told STV that it's 'possible' that he looks to bring in free agents this month, and has set up a meeting with board members Paul Murray and John Gilligan to discuss transfers.

McCall, 50, was appointed as Rangers boss last week, and took charge of his first game on Saturday in the 1-1 draw with Livingston at Ibrox.

The former Rangers midfielder may only have a contract until the end of the season, but will be looking to secure a long-term stay at Ibrox in the coming weeks.

A promotion back to the Scottish Premiership isn't off the table for Rangers, and McCall may need some additional firepower with Rangers having drawn each of their last four games.

His hand has been dealt a blow with the non-impact made by four of the five players signed from Newcastle in January, with McCall admitting that Kevin Mbabu, Remie Street, Gael Bigirimana and Shane Ferguson are unlikely to even play for the club.

Haris Vuckic is impressing on loan from the Magpies, but McCall may need more - and he admitted to STV that he's considering moves for free agent players before the deadline later this month, even setting up a meeting with board members Murray and Gilligan.

"Possibly. I’ve got a meeting with Paul Murray tonight and John Gilligan. I look at the squad and you would think it would be big enough, but if there were an opportunity there to freshen things up," he said.

"But maybe we’ll go with youth. We’ve had a couple in training, Crawford made an impression, Aird has made an impression. No matter what age you are you have got to catch the eye and make an impression," added McCall.

The free agent market is fairly thin right now, so McCall may have his work cut out as he tries to improve the options in his squad at Ibrox.
