Rangers midfielder John Lundstram claims he is “all for” new signings coming into Ibrox as he sets his sights on more silverware with the club.

The Gers fell short in the League Cup once again against Celtic, as the Parkhead side’s 2-1 Hampden victory saw them win the cup and close in on Rangers’ all-time trophy record.

It has several nervous in the Ibrox stands and fans are drawing a line under many in this squad as a result, with John Lundstram himself in the firing line.

The ex-Sheffield United star had a shocker at Hampden with several at Rangers disappointed the likes of £1.75m January signing Nicolas Raskin wasn’t preferred.

Speaking ahead of the clash with Kilmarnock, John Lundstram claims he relishes that extra competition and he believes that anything that makes Rangers better can only be a good thing.

“Of course [I welcome the competition],” said Lundstram [Rangers].

“Anything that makes this club better to win trophies, bring it on 100 per cent. Anything that comes in to help us to win trophies bring, bring them in 100 per cent and if that drives me on great and if that makes me a better player, great.

“But I just want to win trophies with this football club. Whatever that looks like, I’m all for it.”

John Lundstram dismisses Rangers Celtic gap claims

John Lundstram also believes that the perceived gap between Rangers and Celtic is not as big as it is being portrayed with the midfielder adamant the Gers just failed to show up at Hampden.

The Ibrox star also claims the club’s senior players have discussed what went wrong internally as they look to win back supporters.

“As I said before, I don’t think the gap is massive as what one game gets portrayed,” said Lundstram.

“All right, they’re a few points ahead of us in the league but we’ve shown we’re a really good team as well. At the minute they are a few points ahead of us, but we don’t think it’s massive.

“We’ve spoken internally and we’ve spoken about where we thought we went wrong. That was on us not them being 100 per cent better than us.

“I just thought we weren’t ourselves and we didn’t get it right. So that’s on us, not the gap.”

Meanwhile, Rangers have some positive injury news when it comes to the likes of John Souttar.
