Rangers to announce more signings 'soon' as major ambition shared

Rangers hope to announce even more new signings in the very near future as they continue to build on their academy this summer, according to Fraser Fletcher.

The BBC Scotland journalist has reported that the Bears have the “major ambition” to not only produce, but sign the best young talent in their academy ranks.

Cameron Bell was the latest arrival after leaving Premier League side Everton, with Zak Lovelace likely the next to be announced after informing Millwall he is moving to Glasgow.

Writing on his personal Twitter account, Fletcher shared the hope for even more new arrivals at Ibrox in the very near future after the early influx of young talent.

“Rangers have big project to make academy one of the best around,” he wrote.

“Major ambition from Rangers to produce and bring in the best young talent, today Cameron Bell Joins from Everton and more to be announced soon they hope.”

Project.

Of course, this is something that we are getting behind heavily.

But, this cannot affect our business for the first team and bringing in major new signings to help us in the here and now, not in five years from now.

Giovanni van Bronckhorst will be delighted with the sheer number of talent arriving from Scotland and England this summer, but there comes a point where he may need to put his foot down.

John Souttar has arrived, but that was done in January and talk surrounding Antonio Colak continues to linger with no real sense of what is actually happening with that deal.

If we don’t put our foot down and turn these academy signings into first-team arrivals, then we could get left behind, especially with the chances of big exits on the cards too.

Hopefully, with the main bulk of young talent already arriving, some of these announcements that are on the horizon can be names to help us challenge for more immediate silverware.

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