Steven Gerrard has slightly mellowed his language over January’s outgoings by admitting that rather than 100% players not being sold, he ‘doesn’t think’ it’ll happen.
The manager previously expressed steadfast certainty no one was leaving and no one would be sold, but his more recent comments do soften that stance a tad:
Reading between the lines, if an offer too good to refuse comes in, the board and the manager will have to consider it. But the chances of that happening in this window are fairly modest, and we don’t think it’ll happen either.
But it’s a little softer than the hard line language of no sales he advocated last year.
In other news, Gerrard also admitted January signings could be possible if it’s right for Rangers:
Which also suggests the stories we’re hearing on the press are quite literally nonsense.
We’ll continue to bring them to you, for one or two may be that ‘out of the blue’ signing Stevie alludes to, but for now, the language is thus:
Rangers are extremely unlikely to sell anyone this month, albeit it’s not impossible, while the club is definitely happy to improve the squad with additions but it’s not a priority.
So there you have it.
