Frank McParland on the type of player Rangers want to sign

Rangers have recently appointed Frank McParland as their head of recruitment.

Frank McParland has told Rangers' official website that the club have their eyes on players capable of performing in the Scottish Premiership.

At the moment, the Light Blues are plying their trade in Scotland's second tier, but they are keen to recruit people who can perform at the level above. 

Rangers made some valuable additions in the summer transfer window, and McParland wants to ensure the players that are brought to Ibrox are of a high quality, now he has been placed in charge of recruitment. 

“You’ve got to have a few sets of eyes on different things that you want to do, but obviously we want players that can play in the Premiership next year," he said.

“It is a blank canvas, and I am going to sit down and analyse it and get my head around everything we’ve got, and see where we can improve it.

“We need to analyse what is needed and see what money is available. The team are doing not bad at the moment, so it’s not a bad time to improve things, although it’s going to take some exceptional players to get guys out of the team at the moment."

In the summer transfer window, Rangers were particularly active, as they signed up a huge volume of players. 

The Gers have felt the benefit of their recruitment, as they have made a brilliant start to the new campaign and are sitting comfortably at the top of the Scottish Championship table.

Rangers have won their opening 11 league matches this season, and they look dead-certs to be promoted, unless something drastic happens.

As a result, their plan to sign players capable of playing in the Premiership looks to be smart, as it seems that Rangers will be back in Scotland's top-tier next season.
