Steven Gerrard has provided a fresh transfer update, as captured by RangersTV.
The manager was speaking ahead of the second leg of his side’s Europa League Third Round Qualifying tie against FC Midtjylland at Ibrox.
The Gers have strengthened considerably this summer and remain unbeaten after seven competitive matches.
They’ve netted ten times in their last two and barring an upset on Thursday, they should reach at least the playoff round of Europa League qualifying.
It’s not overly surprising then, that the manager says he’s in no hurry to bring in any more players. However, he hasn’t shut the Ibrox door just yet.

“I’m happy’, said Gerrard, as captured by RangersTV. “I think we’ve made enough signings at the moment, we’re really happy with how the squad is shaping up.”
“If something unique happens, or something changes or someone comes and takes one of my players, that could change things. If there’s a bargain before the window shuts – it’d have to be a real big bargain – then, we might go back in. But, at the moment, sitting here, everything is ok.”

Given the current form of the team and the strength in depth in a number of positions, Gerrard’s comments here make sense.
Considering the number of new additions, the new-look squad seems to have gelled quickly, but bringing further bodies in for the sake of it, could jeopardise that.
The return of a promising young striker has boosted resources up top, leaving only really left-back as an area of potential concern.
The key now is that the club holds onto its major assets like James Tavernier and Alfredo Morelos. If they can do that, this squad looks about ready to challenge.
