Rangers boss Mark Warburton has suggested more signings could be on the way after admitting he feels his side still need a bigger squad ahead of the new season, the Evening Times report.

The Gers have been arguably the most active club in the transfer market thus far this summer, bringing in as many as seven new players including experienced trio Joey Barton, Niko Kranjcar and Clint HIll.

Goalkeeper Matt Gilks is the latest to move to Ibrox, and he may not be the last to arrive this summer as Warburton suggests his squad is still short on numbers to deal with the demands of the Scottish Premiership.

“We need a slightly bigger squad, we need that experience with the demand, the physicality of the [Premiership]. If we get the level of performance right then we will be in a good place,” the former Brentford boss was quoted as saying by the Evening Times.

Rangers made their long-awaited return to the top-flight following their controversial demotion to the fourth tier by winning the Scottish Championship in Warburton’s debut season in charge.

The former Brentford boss has made big improvements at Ibrox and done so with a relatively young squad, yet now he has been looking to add the experience needed to rival Celtic for the title.

The likes of Barton, Hill and Kranjcar have experience at the top level in English football, and they will have such a postiive impact on the club both on and off the field over the next 12 months.

Some believe Rangers are still short in numbers at the back, therefore the addition of another centre-back to compete with Hill, Rob Kiernan and Danny Wilson wouldn’t come as a great surprise.
