Speaking on talkSPORT, Rangers manager Steven Gerrard has provided an exciting transfer update, claiming the club have been doing research on a number of players.

There’s no clear idea of what form the transfer window will take this summer, but there’s likely to be pressure on the Gers to strengthen, given how drastically the team’s form fell away after the winter break.

It seems Gerrard and co are already on the case, though.

 

“I wouldn’t be in a position to give names, but what I can say to the Rangers fans is we haven’t stopped since we’ve gone into the pandemic,” he told talkSPORT. “We’ve been as busy as ever watching players in different positions, turning longlists into shortlists.”

“Obviously, times are strange at the moment and we have to continue to follow the government guidelines. I think it will be small steps out of it before we get going again.

“But one thing’s for sure – I won’t stop trying to make this Rangers team as good as I can, that’s for sure.”

Gerrard says he's committed to improving the current Rangers squad.

Verdict

Bears are likely to be excited by this update from the manager.

The current squad looked more than a match for Celtic over the first half of the season but domestic form nosedived following the turn of the year.

With Jermain Defoe injured and Alfredo Morelos misfiring, the Gers looked light on options in attacking areas, while defensive errors proved costly on multiple occasions.

That slump proved the need for more quality and a little more steel in the squad if they are to usurp Celtic, and work is clearly being done behind the scenes, even in these unprecedented times.
