Steven Gerrard's transfer plan may hint Glasgow Rangers have more incoming additions coming

A general view of Ibrox Stadium ahead of the Ladbrokes Scottish Premiership match between Rangers and Hibernian at Ibrox Stadium on August 12, 2017 in Glasgow, Scotland.

Ibrox side Glasgow Rangers are said to be willing to offload both Jason Holt and Andy Halliday this summer.

Andy Halliday of Rangers takes on Michael Keane of Burnley during a pre-season friendly between Rangers FC and Burnley FC at Ibrox Stadium on July 30, 2016 in Glasgow, Scotland.

Glasgow Rangers must be confident of landing targets in central midfield, if they feel happy to let Andy Halliday and Jason Holt go.

The Daily Mail claim that Holt and Halliday will be allowed to leave Ibrox this summer, as Gerrard looks to reshape his squad.

But Gerrard’s move would have to be considered a risk, unless Rangers are able to bring in some additions in central midfield themselves.

Steven Gerrard is unveiled as the new manager of Rangers football Club at Ibrox Stadium on May 4, 2018 in Glasgow, Scotland.

Holt made 33 appearances for Rangers last term, while Halliday showed his versatility towards the end of the campaign, when he filled in in a number of different positions.

Holt and Halliday may not be pivotal players for Rangers, but without the pair, the Light Blues’ current squad would look short in central midfield.

Erik Sviatchenko of Celtic vies with Jason Holt of Rangers during the Rangers v Celtic Ladbrokes Scottish Premiership match at Ibrox Stadium on December 31, 2016 in Glasgow, Scotland.

Jordan Rossiter simply cannot be relied upon to stay fit, while Graham Dorrans also had his fitness issues last term.

Although Rangers have brought in Ovie Ejaria, it seems likely that more central midfield additions could be targeted, if Gerrard is happy to let two members of his current squad leave this summer.
