Rangers complete double transfer blitz for Zak Lovelace and Cameron Bell

Rangers have completed a double transfer blitz for Zak Lovelace and Cameron Bell, according to Football Scotland.

The online outlet has reported that the Bears are expected to announce both deals before the end of play on Friday [01 July], meaning the next 10 hours.

The former Millwall striker and Everton midfielder will initially join up with the academy at Auchenhowie and work with the B team as they look to make the step up.

This week has seen the academy side announce numerous signings for the future.

Ross Wilson always has one eye on the best up-and-coming talents on either side of the border in Scotland and England, and he has worked his magic once again.

Lovelace is said to be the pick of the bunch given that he has already tasted senior football with Millwall, making his official Championship debut in the 2021-22 season.

Blitz.

We are hoping that bringing in these two very bright talents from England will kickstart our senior business after too, with much-needed signings needed.

Lovelace and Bell are showing significant signs, but it will be years until they make a difference in the Scottish Premiership, the cups, or even in Europe.

Antonio Colak of PAOK is clearly the first name on the list with all the signs being that he could be confirmed in a matter of days, definitely not weeks.

Giovanni van Bronckhorst will oversee the arrivals of these young players, but he will be much more interested in what is happening at the first-team level.

With July now underway, this is where the business really kickstarts and we hope that is what the message is going around the Ibrox boardroom at this very moment.

Welcome Lovelace and Bell, but let’s not get carried away until we see some senior signings.

In other Rangers news, scouts at Ibrox are said to have watched this ‘immense’ powerhouse numerous times ahead of a potential major transfer
