Rangers boss Steven Gerrard has reiterated that the Ibrox club remains on the hunt for transfer targets just days after the Scouser suggested he didn’t want to sell Alfredo Morelos.
Whilst the Gers remain in the market for numerous players, the suggestion from some quarters is that we’ll need to sell to fund any moves.
But after Steven Gerrard admitted he’d like to see £20m-rated man Morelos stay at Rangers, it suggests the club won’t have to sell the Colombian to secure their transfer targets.
“If there is one aspect of where we can improve it’s to be more clinical and more ruthless,” said Gerrard [RangersTV].
“What I would say is we’re still waiting for (Cedric) Itten to get up to speed, he’s had his injury setback, Kemar Roofe hasn’t played much before he came in, Alfredo (Morelos) has had his situation so we’re still waiting for our No. 9s to get really sharp.
“What we’ve tried to do is learn from where we’ve went wrong in the past.
“Maybe we didn’t have enough tools in the final third or enough people to change it or enough behind us when we’ve needed it at important times of the games.
“What will be interesting is if we can keep them all in the door, and if we can get them all up to speed it’ll be interesting.”
That would suggest Steven Gerrard is under no pressure to sell the striker and that Rangers are actively trying to keep him at the club.
Couple this with comments Gerrard made regarding the club’s reported pursuit of Daniel Johnson, and it would suggest that Rangers need not sell anyone if they want to sign some new players.
“I won’t mention any of the targets that we’re pursuing,” said Gerrard [Rangers].
“I don’t think that’s right or respectful so I won’t be mentioning any names in here today but again I’ll say that we looking to add to the squad.”
