Rangers boss Steven Gerrard has suggested he expects transfer movement in and out of Ibrox during the international break.

The Ibrox manager was speaking after his side dumped Hamilton 2-0 in a routine win at the Fountain of Youth Stadium this weekend.

With the Gers now set for two weeks on the sidelines as the club look to regroup ahead of a title charge, Gerrard admitted that the landscape of the squad could be somewhat altered in the coming days.

When asked by Sky Sports [Hamilton v Rangers broadcast 29/08/20] if he felt there would be any more activity following the transfer of Jamie Murphy to Hibs, Gerrard said “yes I do.”

Later when asked about Alfredo Morelos, Gerrard admitted that he didn’t know if the player would be at Ibrox amid claims an £18m (€20m) deal is in the pipeline with Lille.

Gerrard also reiterated that the club are on the hunt for a midfielder.

“I don’t know (about Morelos),” said Gerrard [Scottish Sun]. “That’s a very difficult question for me to answer.

“I’m taking each day as it comes in terms of Alfredo. He’s trained really well this week but I really can’t control what other teams will do.


“All I can do is manage the situation on a daily basis. At the moment, where we stand right now, I expect to see him after the international break.

“The squad is where I want it to be at the moment.

“There is still a little bit of noise around certain players and we will handle it when we need to.

“If bids come in, we will make decisions on them.

“I have been open that I still want to bring a midfielder in. If we do that I would be happy with the numbers.

“I would only add another if someone goes the other way.”
