Steven Gerrard has revealed, rather than what he said in Dubai about bringing one player in, he now believes no one will arrive in Govan this window after all.
The Rangers manager was discussing the window in his pre-Stranraer presser, and while moves are ongoing to ship players out, it appears the earlier hopes while away in the training camp of bringing someone in have faded, and it’s about holding onto the players we need and trimming the ones we don’t.
“Unless something big happened to one of the players then I don’t predict anyone to come in.”
It’s certainly a little disappointing to say the least – Rangers are a touch short in attack, and in defence (more on that later), and also lack a definitive attacking midfielder, but then we’ve got this far with the squad we have, so perhaps it’s not the end of the world.
That said, Gerrard tends to be clever with the truth, and by giving mixed messages about intentions from one week to the next, conceals his hand either way.
Maybe someone will still come in, we’ll see.
