Brandon Barker officially joined the Gers on Friday, signing from Manchester City on a three-year-deal for an undisclosed fee.
According to the manager, the 22-year-old is an ‘exciting’ addition to the ranks who will hopefully begin to live up to his significant potential [STV].
Gerrard provides Rangers transfer update
It seems that Barker brings that final bit of flair that Gerrard was looking for. Yet, further transfer movement at Ibrox hasn’t been ruled out.
“I think Barker will be the last piece but, as I’ve said before, all of my players have a price, unfortunately,” he said, as quoted by the Daily Record. “We’re not a Man City or a Liverpool, where some players don’t have a price.”
“I can’t predict what’s going to happen around Europe, so we have to be prepared for stuff happening.
“In terms of incomings, we’re 99.9 per cent complete. But I’ll always leave that wee piece so I don’t make a liar of myself.”
It seems that the manager will now only return to the market if it’s to replace a sold player.
Thankfully, the English window has now shut, so the likes of James Tavernier, will now definitely not be heading south of the border.
Yet, Alfredo Morelos has been subject to rumoured interest from all over Europe throughout the summer.
With the window remaining open for several weeks in Scotland and abroad, there’s every chance a side could still come in for El Bufalo. If a suitable offer lands and he departs, Gerrard will have to strengthen.
At present, the Colombian is one of just two senior strikers in the Rangers squad and Jermain Defoe can’t be given sole responsibility for goalscoring.
