Rangers chairman Dave King has told the club's official YouTube channel that the club are working on a couple of deals to bring new signings in.

The Gers opened their league campaign with a 1-1 draw at home to Hamilton Academical, with Martyn Waghorn's equaliser saving a point on Rangers' return to the top flight.

Fans will have wanted a win, but it was a decent start for Rangers, who handed league debuts to a host of new signings at Ibrox this afternoon.

Clint Hill, Joey Barton and Niko Kranjcar all started the game, whilst Jordan Rossiter came on as a substitute, with other new signings Matt Gilks, Lee Hodson and Joe Dodoo left on the bench.

A late injury to Waghorn has concerned some Rangers fans, and whilst a new striker was needed anyway, manager Mark Warburton will now be keen to bring in another goalscorer - and chairman Dave King has offered an update to supporters.

Speaking to the club's official YouTube channel after today's game, King admitted that he would be surprised if Rangers didn't make any more signings before this month's transfer deadline, as there are a couple of deals he and the club are currently working on.

King also spoke of his plans concerning the January transfer window, stating that Rangers want to keep their options open in the transfer market so they can re-assess and make more additions in the new year - which may be particularly important if Rangers are pushing for the title or European qualification.

"I would be surprised if we didn’t have someone coming in, there’s a couple we are working on," said King.

"I think we should have someone in before the end of the transfer window, and we’re also keeping our options open for the January transfer window so that we can re-assess the situation, see where we are and, if necessary, we might do some business in January," he added.
