Rangers FC started made a very decent start to the new Scottish season under new manager Steven Gerrard and they are set to play their first Scottish League Cup match of the season when they take on Kilmarnock on Sunday.
Gerrard has brought in a number of players during the summer transfer window and his main focus has been to strengthen the problematic area of the pitch which made the Light Blues look really bad last season.
But the manager has recently hinted that he is not too pleased with the transfer business and wants to add atleast to more players before the end of this month.
Talking to Sky Sports, Steven Gerrard said:
“It’s not just about the workload. It’s about the positions,
“We feel a little light up front after losing Josh Windass to Wigan. He scored a lot of goals for us last season and the idea is to replace those goals in the coming weeks.
“At centre-back, we’re quite light. We are asking a lot of Connor Goldson and Nikola Katic who have been tremendous for us this season. We would like some cover in that area as well.”
Despite bringing in Goldson and Katic during the summer, the Gers are still out in the market in search of a backup central-defender and the same holds true for the striker’s department.
Up front, the Light Blues only have Alfredo Morelos and Umar Sadiq as their two recognized strikers and Gerrard has been chasing Hearts striker Kyle Lafferty for some time now.
But recently the Hearts manager has made it clear that his frontman is nowhere close to rejoining Rangers.
