Deadline Day: Rangers' transfer latest

Over the past few weeks Rangers’ transfer window has definitely dried up somewhat.

A lack of new names has appeared on the horizon, and while there were positives to take from the hard-fought win at Dingwall on Sunday, improvements to the squad are still needed and new blood essential.

With that in mind, let Ibrox Noise take you through the most up-to-date info we have regarding any more potential incomings between now and Deadline Day.

Jamie Walker:

As everyone and his dog knows, this saga has been going on for months. Jamie wants to come, Rangers desperately need him, and the only thing holding it up is submitting a bid Hearts deem acceptable. The latest is that Rangers’ final attempt at producing one will take place this week. We must hope it convinces Craig Levein and co. to part company with the winger.

Matthew Olusunde:

This name cropped up on the usual channels over the past day; a 19 year old full back currently plying his trade at Old Traffford, Olusunde is an American-born utility player capable of around five different positions ranging from defence to the wing, and the claims are that Rangers are looking for a possible loan.

Kenny McLean:

This one is still there. It does not seem to have completely gone away yet, and with Rangers always looking to improve the squad a Scotland international midfielder would be welcome. We do suspect the cost would be well out of Rangers’ budget though, with it likely to be a couple of million. Aberdeen absolutely 100% do not want to sell. Except to Celtic.

Not exactly a plethora of linked players, mentions to the usual Louis Moults, Steven Naismiths and a few others who remain tentatively on the radar.

With the capture of Man City’s Aaron Nemane there has been something of a buzz about new Director of Football Mark Allen taking more control over the transfers, and using his contacts to get some high-calibre youth from the bigger clubs. Nemane is certainly in that category but Rangers’ history recently of loans from other Academies is certainly not glorious and we sincerely hope the ex-City Academy director can effect positive change in that department.

Not long to go…
