RANGERS OPINION 

By the looks of things, the transfer window is likely to see more outgoings than incomings at Ibrox this month.

Rangers are in a strong position in the league with a decent amount if strength in depth in pretty much every department, and as the old saying goes, if something ain’t broke, don’t fix it.

A report from The Athletic has suggested that the Gers could look to trim away a significant proportion of the deadwood in their squad over the coming weeks, whether that be on permanent deals or temporary loan exits.

But for the most part, rumours about new additions to the squad have been kept at something close to a minimum.

One name that has been bandied about, however, is that of Stoke City prodigy Tyrese Campbell, as per Football Insider.

The youngster has caught the eye this season, hitting four goals in the Championship already this season, and it is understood that the Gers could go toe-to-toe with bitter rivals Celtic to lure him to Scotland.

But any hopes of that deal going ahead could end up being dashed after the latest update from Football Insider.

The report suggests that Stoke are set to open talks with Campbell, whose contract expires at the end of the season, in an effort to tie him down and fend off interest from the two Old Firm clubs.

The 20-year-old really sparked his season into life with three goals in three games over the festive period, and the suggestion that his sudden purple patch could inspire the Potters to make a move that ensures he stays put.

From a Gers perspective, this would be a disappointment, but probably not the end of the world.

At the end of the day, Campbell is a talent, but he is still fairly unproven at a decent level, and a glut of goals over Christmas is hardly proof of his long term sustainability.

If it comes off and he does end up at Ibrox, great, if not, we go again for someone else.
