Celtic struck a host of deals in the January transfer window.
Rangers were busy in the January transfer window, striking five deals to bolster Steven Gerrard’s squad both for now and for the future.
The Gers first landed Glen Kamara and Jordan Jones on pre-contract agreements, before veteran duo Jermain Defoe and Steven Davis joined on loan.
Rangers then added goalkeeper Andy Firth from Barrow, before signing Matt Polster on a free transfer and bringing forward Kamara’s deal, signing him from Dundee for a nominal fee.
Rangers have shown that they’re ready to strike pre-contract agreements in order to boost Gerrard’s squad for next season, and here are three more they should pursue…
Joe Worrall will be heading back to Nottingham Forest this summer whilst Gareth McAuley is out of contract this summer, meaning another centre back must be on Gerrard’s wish list. One player who fits the bill is Livingston’s Halkett, who has starred this season. The 23-year-old came up through the Rangers ranks before leaving for Livingston in 2016, and is out of contract this summer. Not only has he impressed with his quality now, but he also has potential for the future, and should be brought back to Ibrox this summer, with Rangers potentially needing to move now if they want him.
Steven Gerrard played down interest in him last month, but Rangers really should be keen on Wigan Athletic ace Powell. The Scottish Sun claim that the Gers want Powell on a pre-contract agreement, and Gerrard may have just been playing his cards close to his chest. Rangers’ squad is decent, but they lack a real, creative number 10, and Powell fits the bill. The 24-year-old still has his best years ahead of him, but has hit four goals and four assists this season, and would be the dynamic playmaker that Rangers need.
Alfredo Morelos may be on his way out this summer, and Rangers should strikers in mind for next season. Sky Sports claim that Rangers want Gillingham target man Eaves, who has hit 16 goals this season after an 18-goal campaign last term. The Scouser, 27, would no doubt love to play under Gerrard, and would give Rangers something different as a brute force in attack, especially with Kyle Lafferty struggling. Eaves wouldn’t make many headlines, but he could be the perfect Plan B for Rangers on a free transfer, with his contract at Gillingham coming to an end.
