Gerrard outlines what he expects for Rangers on Deadline Day

Steven Gerrard had a reasonably comfortable Wednesday night – apart from the cold – as his side defeated Cowdenbeath in the Scottish Cup.
The 3-1 win was never really in doubt, even if some fans were up in arms at the decision-making of officials.

After the match, he was drawn on the plans for for deadline day.

As far as he’s concerned, the club have effectively finished in their attempts to strengthen in the window.
“There will be no ins. We’re happy and satisfied with what we have”, said the manager, as quoted by Sky Sports. 
“I can’t see anyone coming in unless something crazy happens.”

We’ll certainly be keeping an eye out for any movement.
Yet, it seems like Rangers’ business on that front is likely concluded.

Is Gerrard making a mistake?

While it’s always bound to be tempting to try to push through just one more deal, the Gers have been busy during the window.
January is a briefer, more intense, but ultimately, a poor relation to the summer version.
It can be seen as an opportunity to shore up clear weak spots or inject some quality, but is rarely used to make wholesale changes.

Gerrard has managed to do the former things, reasonably efficiently.
Rangers are stronger for the window, and it’s far from a disaster if no more spending takes place today.
