Rangers are active in the January transfer window, as they were in the summer, as Greame Murty is keen to bolster his squad.

The Gers are third in the Scottish Premiership, 11 points behind Celtic, and closing the gap with their arch-rivals should be their top priority in the second half of the season.

Rangers have scored 18 goals at home, compared to 26 by Celtic, and Murty could be looking to add a good forward to his ranks.

Given the Ibrox club’s financial condition, they would have to be smart and careful with their additions. They will have to sign players who can make an impact.

With that in mind, Rangers should look to sign Liverpool forward Harry Wilson on loan. The 20-year-old Welshman finds himself in a difficult position at Liverpool, and has already rejected one contract extension offer.

He is too good to be playing for the Liverpool U23 levels, having scored 12 goals, and laying on 10 assists in just 16 games in the first half of the season.

He could be a real asset provided he is given time to settle, and goals from him are guaranteed. He could be an invaluable signing for any ambitious club looking to challenge for promotion or fighting at the club.

Wilson’s versatility and cutting edge makes him an attractive player, and could prove to be a masterstroke signing for Rangers if they are able to lure him to Ibrox.
