Michael Beale was recently appointed Rangers manager and has the task of chasing down Celtic but the club will have to help him in the transfer market.

Money is always a central subject at Rangers since the club went through financial turmoil in 2012 and despite record profits things are still tight.

With reported court cases on the horizon and the prospect of losing two key players for free in the summer Rangers will have to fund signings in January.

Ross Wilson has promised available funds to the new Rangers manager but there certainly isn’t a bottomless pit to play with.

Therefore some extra cash may have to be generated through selling some of the clubs key assets.

Fan favourites may see the exit door as new era begins under Michael Beale

There are a number of players who have been linked to moves away and they could help fund incoming talent to the squad.

Borna Barisic looked close to leaving in summer according to reports and it is unlikely those interested in a transfer bid have looked away.

The World Cup quarter finalist could see fresh bids come in for his services and it might be hard for Rangers to say no.

Although many fans would not be opposed to the sale its a key member of the team who has been a mainstay for the past few years.

Midfielder Glen Kamara looked close to a late transfer in the summer and noise around his future has also not been silenced.

Mixu Paatelainen has warned that he could leave if game time doesn’t improve and since the departure of Gerrard things haven’t been the same for the ez-Dundee man.

Kamara is a player who Beale trusted in his first tenure there and someone he could likely turn to now that he is in the top job.

There is a likelihood though that the Finland international could face fresh interest from France and Serie A.

Rangers will have to replace those who leave and the pressure will be on Wilson to help Beale find those players.

Cheap signings are available but there are not really free transfers in football once wages and agents fees come into the equation.

So Rangers fans could see a revolving door at Ibrox as the team who brought 55 may make way to help the club try and achieve 56.
