As far as bringing in players goes, Rangers must monitor developments at Swansea City.

 

Wales Online report finances at Swansea are 'extremely tight', citing a £30 million deficit.

This will leave Swansea potentially selling their best players in the summer, and two should interest Rangers.

Star striker Oli McBurnie is a vocal Rangers fan, frequently praising the club on social media.

This summer would be an ideal time for Rangers to bring him to Ibrox to lead the line.

He could still be too costly for Rangers, but not if they end up selling Alfredo Morelos.

Another name to consider is ex-Gers winger Barrie McKay.

Once Rangers' golden boy, McKay left after getting fed up during the Pedro Caixinha regime.

Rangers should look to bring back the winger for a cut price fee, and give him the chance to flourish under Steven Gerrard.

McKay, 24, has only started 14 of  38 games for Swansea this season and could jump at the chance to return to Ibrox if it is presented to him.
