Rangers boss Steven Gerrard has sent a defiant transfer message as the January window gets underway, insisting none of the club’s key players are up for sale.
The Gers are currently 19 points clear in the Scottish Premiership with the Ibrox side halfway to a legendary 55th title this season.
Steven Gerrard’s team are also going well on the European stage and as a result, there’s been plenty of transfer talk surrounding the club’s key players.
From Borna Barisic and James Tavernier to Connor Goldson, Glen Kamara and Alfredo Morelos, there have been plenty of links out of Ibrox this January.
But Gerrard was clear in his press conference that Rangers have no intention of letting their biggest names leave Glasgow in this window even if he expects some fringe players to leave on loan.
“We’re really happy with the squad at the moment and I don’t expect any drastic changes in terms of people coming in to join that,” said Gerrard [Rangers].
“I expect a few people to go out, there’s a lot of interest in our younger players and our fringe players in terms of loans.
“I expect quite a few loan deals to be done from now until the end of the window in terms of outgoings.
“We’re linked with quite a few players in the media but we always are, every week, every month there’s always two or three names but nothing to really say on that.
“We’re always looking to improve, if something came available that was of interest we’d pursue it but there’s nothing coming out in the coming days that’s a surprise.
“[But] No one is going out the door.”
Rangers find themselves in a strong position this season and fans will be buoyed by the news that no-one will be leaving Ibrox this summer.
There have been plenty of names linked with moves away – not least El Bufalo – but Rangers would do well cashing in on a player coming into form at the right time.
