An already busy summer is not about to slow down any time soon for Rangers judging by the latest comments from their manager.

In a transfer window that has already seen a total of eight players come and go, new Gers boss Pedro Caixinha says as many as 17 more deals could involve the Ibrox -based club.

“The team has undergone a major refurbishment - there could be 14 players leaving and 11 players coming into the club,” the Portuguese manager told Portuguese publication DN.

Caixinha has wasted little time this offseason, bringing in Bruno Alves, Ryan Jack, Fabio Cardoso, Daniel Candeias and Dalcio so far.

Going the other way, Clint Hill and Philippe Senderos were both released on free transfers, while Joe Garner moved to Ipswich Town last week.

The club’s competitive campaign is due to begin in the Europa League qualifying rounds later this month, so the need to work fast in the transfer market has not been lost on the Gers boss.

“We started by analysing our current squad in training, then we looked at the Scottish market and the international scene,” Caixinha said.

“For the risk to be smaller, we went to the markets and the players we know.”

Mexico midfielder Carlos Pena

The strategy of sticking to what he knows has seen the former goalkeeper sign four fellow Portuguese for the club, while his experience in Mexico has led to links with Carlos Pena and Eduardo Herrera.

But if the former goalkeeper’s comments are anything to go by, a host of new arrivals will be turning up at Ibrox before the transfer window closes.
