Steven Gerrard has told The Glasgow Evening Times that Rangers could sign a new player by Tuesday.

Rangers have signed 10 new players overall this summer and their squad is looking in great shape ahead of tomorrow's Premiership opener away to Aberdeen.

But the new Gers manager still has another month in which to make adjustments to his squad before the deadline.

The Ibrox side remain linked to a number of new players - including Kyle Lafferty - and Gerrard, speaking on Friday, revealed to The GET that a new face could be signed within four days.

“Yes and no,” the 38-year-old responded when asked if there had been any progress on new signings. “There is nothing to say on any individual, but we are trying very hard to progress on it.

 

"I’m hoping for a new face in the next three or four days. And we are still looking for those pieces to sort the squad. I’ll be satisfied with a few more in."

Much of the speculation seems to be centering around the additions of a centre-back and a striker - both of which could make a huge difference to Gerrard's side this season.

Connor Goldson and Nikola Katic are looking like top-class signings, but Gerrard desperately needs cover after Bruno Alves and Fabio Cardoso left the club, while the legendary midfielder could also do with another striker.

Alfredo Morelos is fantastic and Gerrard will be relying on his goals this season, but the Colombian hitman only has Umar Sadiq - yet to play a competitive game in Scotland - as competition so someone like Lafferty would be a fantastic coup.
