Rangers need to show more ambition if they want to prevent Gerrard from being frustrated
Rangers have been warned to start spending money by Keith Jackson, or Gerrard could start to get frustrated at Ibrox.
Speaking in his column for the Daily Record, the journalist claims that the 41-year-old was only brought to Glasgow to stop Celtic from winning a tenth league title in a row and that he could start to grow frustrated if the club don’t match his ambition.
In the last transfer window, the Gers spent just over £2million but managed to bring in four first-team players, but Jackson doesn’t think this will be enough for Gerrard.
He said: “It feels as if Gerrard is starting to realise that he was brought to Glasgow for one reason only.
“That the be-all and end-all for the men in charge of the purse strings was stopping Celtic from winning a tenth successive title.
“The board was prepared to throw the kitchen sink at this myopic project, but as soon as it was accomplished, the spending stopped.
“If Gerrard suspects his own ambitions are not being matched at the top of the stairs, then it won’t be just his starting XI which feels a little unsettled.”

You would think that when the Gers sell a top player like Ianis Hagi or Alfredo Morelos, then they will have more money to invest in the squad.

Nnamdi Ofoborh hasn’t played yet, while Fashion Sakala and Juninho Bacuna are still settling in but have shown flashes.
To be honest, we believe that all of these players will prove their worth, and we don’t know why Gerrard would be unsettled with the Gers at the top of the league.
It hasn’t been the easiest of seasons for Rangers this year, but the league appears to be more competitive, and ultimately, this should help the Gers in the long run
