Time for Rangers to spend some cash before its too late

Rangers are coming off the back of an impressive campaign where they won the Scottish Cup and finished the Europa League as the runners-up after losing the final to Eintracht Frankfurt.

Despite the on-the-field success, the Rangers were hoping for that to replicate with off-the-field developments as well but so far it has not been the case.

Three key players have entered the final years of their respective contracts whereas midfielder Joe Aribo is set for a move to the Premier League.

Spend Some Money

It has taken a long time for Rangers to establish themselves in not just Scottish Football but also in European Football.

It was just a few seasons ago when people referred to the Scottish League as another form of Ligue 1, where there was only one team fighting for the league.

However, trends have changed in Scotland in recent years as Rangers won the Scottish Premiership in 2021 under Steven Gerrard.

However, things may change again if they are not careful, especially when it comes to recruiting. They have to carry on this momentum and spend to improve the spine of their team.

So far in the ongoing transfer window, Rangers have signed striker Antonio Colak from PAOK in a deal worth £1.8 million whereas Tom Lawrence arrived from Derby County as a free agent.

That kind of spending is just not enough to sustain the club’s competitiveness at the highest level, especially when the club are bound to struggle in the middle of the part with the departure of Aribo.

Therefore, it is important that the club’s hierarchy will start spending money they collect after selling players because not doing so will only take the club backwards.
