While the identity of Rangers’ next permanent manager has not yet been confirmed, the Gers hierarchy will already be thinking long and hard about which players to target this summer as they try to close the gap on Old Firm rivals Celtic.

Permanent signings will be needed to ensure Rangers challenge regularly at the top of the Scottish Premiership but a canny loan deal or two could also make plenty of difference.

One player Rangers would be wise to consider is Liverpool attacker Harry Wilson, who has already scored 24 goals for the Reds’ under-23 side this season.

Predominantly a right winger but also able to operate as an attacking midfielder or a centre forward if required, the 19-year-old is the youngest player ever to be capped by Wales and he is tipped for a very bright future at Anfield.

That said he may have to wait a while longer before Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp gives him chances, meaning a loan move next season could be perfect for all concerned.

Rangers need more creative catalysts and Wilson is certainly that; a player ready to take the step up and prove his quality for a senior side, and someone who could hit the ground running at Ibrox if given the chance.
