Rangers boss Steven Gerrard has predicted that there will be more outgoings than incomings at Ibrox during the January transfer window.
The transfer rumour mill has started up ahead of next month’s window and Gers fans will be keen to know if they can expect to see any new players at Rangers over the coming weeks.
However, Gerrard has claimed that he thinks more players will leave Ibrox than arrive and admitted that he is instead looking at the contract situation with his current players.
Gerrard is quoted by The Scotsman as saying, “I don’t think we’re in any mad rush but we’re certainly looking at certain (contract) situations with Glen and a few others.
“I’m really happy with where the squad is at in terms of competition for places. There’s no desperation for new signings.
“I’d probably predict there will be more going the other way rather than incomings. But I’ll never say never because if something becomes available that we like and it makes sense, I do think I would get the support if we needed to do something.”
When you have a squad that is as deep and talented as the one Rangers currently have it is only natural for some players to be linked with moves away.
No Gers fans will want to see these key men leave Ibrox but if a decent offer comes in then Rangers might have to let them go, especially if the club can’t sort out Kamara’s contract situation.
Two more obvious departures would be Jordan Jones and George Edmundson who are currently still serving bans after breaking COVID regulations.
It is unlikely that either player has a long term future at Ibrox and the club could look to move them on in January.
Gerrard’s quotes could suggest that the Gers boss isn’t looking to bring in any fresh faces and is simply looking to get a few players who aren’t playing off the wage bill.
This wouldn’t be a bad thing at all considering the strength and depth the Gers have at their disposal this season, though fans do love a high profile new signing to get excited about.
