Rangers fans may have to wait until the summer before they see their club make moves in the transfer market.

Steven Gerrard’s side are in a particularly strong position during this month’s window, with their squad having secured a 21-point lead at the top of the Scottish Premiership.

Football Insider had reported that both Rangers and Celtic were interested in Preston’s Ben Davies. They claimed that Rangers were considering various approaches to a transfer for the 25-year-old defender, including a permanent deal in January, a pre-contract agreement and a signing in the summer transfer window.

The Glasgow Times reported that both sides had watched the 20-year-old, whose father is former Newcastle United star Laurent Robert.

Press Association journalist Andy Newport, however, has poured cold water on speculation linking the players with Ibrox.

In a tweet posted on Wednesday afternoon, Newport said: “Understand Rangers will not be making a move for Preston’s Ben Davies. Airdrie’s Thomas Robert is also not on Steven Gerrard’s list of targets.

“Club expecting to do ‘little to nothing’ on the transfer front this month.”

Asked if Aberdeen forward Scott Wright could join up during this window, Newport responded: “No developments on that I’m told. Gerrard said last week the priority was for the summer.”

Rangers continue their bid for the title on Saturday when they welcome Ross County to Ibrox.

Gerrard’s men have won both of their previous meetings against the Staggies this season, earning a 2-0 victory at Ibrox in October and a 4-0 win at the Global Energy Stadium in December.
