Rangers manager Steven Gerrard has insisted that the “majority” of the Gers’ transfer business is done – but admits he is still looking to add someone to his midfield.
The Gers have been consistently linked with a move for Amiens ace Bongani Zungu, although sources close to Rangers are adamant there is no interest in the South African.
Gerrard also confirmed he is trying to move on some of his fringe players but denied that he was under pressure to sell after the double swoop to sign Kemar Roofe and Cedric Itten.
“I’ve said before we’re still looking to add another player in the engine room but there’s nothing to report as of yet. We’re always looking to strengthen but the majority of our business is done,” Gerrard said, as quoted by the Daily Record.
“The important thing to know is that along with myself, the board wants this team to get stronger to give us the best possible chance to compete on all fronts.
“I’m under no immense pressure to move people out.
“But I am trying to shorten the squad and get people back playing football.
“I know we’re going to receive bids for some of our players but sitting here right now I haven’t received a bid that I’m happy with for any of our players so we move along with what we’ve got.”
With the transfer window open until October, there might be some time until Gerrard gets his man in midfield.
Steven Davis has looked very out of sorts so far since returning to action while Glen Kamara and Ryan Jack don’t offer enough going forward.
The potential sale of Alfredo Morelos could well play a big part in determining the quality of player Gerrard gets in with the Colombian’s transfer fee likely to be what Gerrard ends up spending.
