Rangers manager Steven Gerrard has given a strong indication that the club won’t sign any more players this summer.
Filip Helander signed from Bologna for £3.5m at the weekend; taking the number of summer arrivals up to eight.
When quizzed whether there could be a potential ninth signing on the way before the transfer window closes, Gerrard said it was unlikely:
“In terms of incomings, we’re near enough done. I always say near enough, you’re never done as a manager but there won’t be much more activity in terms of incomings. We’ve got quality players in each position and we’ve got people fighting for places.”
Rangers have been linked with Gerrard’s former Liverpool teammate Martin Skrtel, with the 34-year-old having confirmed the Scottish club’s interest in him last week.
However, it appears most of the remaining transfer activity this summer will be outgoings. There are a number of players on the club’s books who don’t really have a future at Ibrox.
Kyle Lafferty, Graham Dorrans, Jason Holt, Eros Grezda and Ryan Hardie all seem to be on the way out of the club but, as of yet, the Gers have not found buyers for them.
