Former Rangers star Kris Boyd believes Rangers have shown the “right way forward” for clubs by turning their focus in the transfer market to Scottish players.
The Gers have signed Jake Hastie and are expected to confirm Greg Stewart’s signing imminently as Steven Gerrard adds to his squad for the new campaign.
“I think it’s the right way forward to bring in three or four Scots,”
Boyd told the Sunday Post.
“Sometimes you tend to look away from what is right under your nose, and that can be a mistake.
“I was a young Scottish player and given an opportunity at Rangers when they signed me from Kilmarnock. It’s important for clubs not to forget their own.”
Last summer’s signings were geared toward them making an immediate impact and replacing the raft of players who moved on 12 months ago.
This time around, Gerrard can put some more thought into targets and look at players who won’t necessarily come straight into the side.
With another ten days until Gerrard’s side report for pre-season, it will be interesting to see if there is any change in the transfer policy as the summer goes on.
