Rangers assistant McAllister hints there could yet be transfer activity

As quoted by the Rangers FC Twitter, assistant manager, Gary McAllister, has hinted that while there is ‘no panic’ in the wake of a defeat to Hearts, the Gers could enter the transfer market over the final few days of the window.

So far, it’s certainly played out so, with Jamie Murphy, Eros Grezda, Andy King and Eduardo Herrera leaving, either on loan or permanent deals, while there have been no signings.

However, despite the fact that there are only a few days remaining before the deadline, McAllister has suggested that activity is still possible.

“Obviously, everyone is disappointed with the performance and the result,” said McAllister, as quoted by Rangers FC Twitter. “We had a good chat here, there is no panic.”

“As the manager said we were unrecognisable and the players are well aware. We have to push it away and move forward.”

Later in the presser, when directly asked about transfers, he said: “A club like Rangers is always looking to improve in every window.”

Verdict

It’s unclear to what extent the Gers have been ‘looking to improve’ across the last number of weeks.

Sky Sports reported that ‘extensive talks’ were held with Stoke City striker, Tyrese Campbell, but other than that, there’s been very little evidence of attempts at recruitment.

These comments from the assistant boss should be encouraging to fans who are baying for fresh faces, though, as if there was nothing in the pipeline at this stage, McAllister could have used this opportunity to end any potential speculation.

If a new signing is to come, it will surely be an attacking player.

In the absence of Alfredo Morelos, Jermain Defoe fought a lone battle up front for the first three matches of 2020, while outside of Ryan Kent, wingers and attack-minded midfielders have been goal-shy.
