Rangers manager Steven Gerrard has confirmed that he’s looking to trim his bloated squad – and hopes to have moved players on in the “coming weeks.”

The Gers boss has a massive squad with several senior players unable to be registered for the Europa League and Gerrard admits it is hard to keep everyone happy.

With eight new signings in the door this summer, Gerrard admits that if there something that “will suit” better then he will “respect that.”

“Over the coming weeks, we’re hoping to move some on,” Gerrard said, as quoted by Sky Sports.

“It’s very difficult to meet everyone’s ambitions in terms of game time because everyone wants to start every game and it’s difficult to do so.

“If there’s something out there that will suit the player and the club then I’ll respect that.”

The likes of Kyle Lafferty, Eros Grezda and Graham Dorrans are likely to be near the top of any list of departures after falling out of favour completely.

There’s also a number of others like Jak Alnwick, Jason Holt and Joe Dodoo who have returned from stints out on loan but have no future at Ibrox.

If the Gers can get some of them off the wage bill, it might even create enough wiggle-room for Gerrard to bring one more player to Ibrox before the transfer window shuts.
