Rangers have been busy so far in the transfer window with four new signings already confirmed.

The signings of Steve Davis and Jermain Defoe add a real bit of quality.

Glen Kamara and Jordan Jones’ summer arrivals will add more depth to the squad.

But does Defoe’s arrival spell trouble for Kyle Lafferty?

The Northern Irishman hasn’t really got going since signing from Hearts despite making 20 appearances.

A handful of goals and mostly substitute appearances have left Lafferty fighting for starts.

With Alfredo Morelos scoring for fun and now Defoe’s arrival, the lanky striker is clearly third-choice striker.

There could be a tactical switch to play both Morelos and Defoe regularly after the winter break.

 

However, if there isn’t then it’s difficult to see how Lafferty can break into the side.

Gerrard seems to really like his 4-3-3 and a change from that doesn’t look on the cards.

He’d still be a very good player to have around though – and his knack of scoring league-winning goals is handy.

As the season heads towards the important bit, Lafferty might well have to accept that he might not play very often.

Even if he wanted to, he couldn’t move until the summer anyway after playing for two clubs already this year.

Although, with title 55 looking like a real possibility, the boyhood Gers fan isn’t likely in a rush to complain.
