Rangers haven’t wasted time this summer in getting new faces in the door but the best transfer news for the Gers might not even involve them.
Bitter rivals Celtic have had a bizarre start to the transfer window with the comical David Turnbull saga now looking like costing them the best part of £4million to get the teenager in the door while recently released Rangers midfielder Liam Burt has reportedly started training with them.

Latest reports also claim they’ve had a £5million bid thrown out by Aberdeen for Scott McKenna so if that’s the level their summer acquisitions are at then Rangers are in a very good place.

Steven Gerrard’s side clearly have their own issues to overcome if they are to launch a real challenge for the title but much of that was down to a lack of consistency and struggling to break down stuffy sides.

The addition of Jordan Jones and Greg Stewart are two players who have shown they can unlock Scottish Premiership defences – and the seemingly imminent arrivals of Joe Aribo and Ryan Kent will also help with that.

A sharp Jermain Defoe is also going to pose big problems for defences and then there’s last season’s top goalscorer Alfredo Morelos.

There’s still room for a quality addition to Steven Gerrard’s squad but given how things are looking so far in the transfer window – although it is still very early – the Gers are very much heading in the right direction.
As long as Celtic continue to target players like Burt and overspend on Scottish Premiership players then Rangers are sure to continue to close the gap and push for the title this season after what will be a nine-year wait to lift the league trophy.
