Latest Rangers transfer reports suggest club are looking to the future

The latest reports concerning Rangers’ transfer activity, suggest the club are looking to the future as well as the present.
Of course, a 55th first-tier Scottish title is the number one priority.
That’s why experienced, proven performers such as Steven Davis and Jermain Defoe, have been brought in this month.

Yet, the Gers also know that quick fixes aren’t always the way to go.
Spotting talent and bringing young players to Ibrox to develop and break into the first team, is crucial for the health of the club going forward.
Steven Gerrard, a former head of Liverpool’s youth system, will appreciate that more than most.
Perhaps that’s why he felt compelled to state categorically today, that Ross McCrorie won’t be leaving the club.

Yesterday, we told you of reports that Rangers are currently tracking two highly rated 17-year-olds.
The Daily Record’s transfer blog (16 January 08:34) suggest an interest in Partick Thistle’s Aidan Fitzpatrick.
While, the Belfast Telegraph, tell of the pursuit of Larne’s Liam Hassin.

Today, reports also claim that Macedonian teenager, Mile Todorov, is trialling with the club.
Todorov is currently attached to Croatian club NK Novigrad, but is attempting to earn a move to the Gers.

All this evidence, combined with the recent news of a significant funding increase into the development system, suggests there is a concerted effort to bring in and develop the best young players at Rangers.
The club are launching a bid to get back to the top of Scottish football, and they want to stay there.
