Rangers have secured two signings this window but otherwise the work to enhance the squad for 56 and the CL is dramatically silent at the moment.

And that’s exactly how Rangers have begun conducting their business the past few years.

The occasional deal does leak out (Kemar Roofe was long linked before he joined) but generally recent transactions are done very quietly indeed to avoid contamination and especially to avoid Celtic trying to hijack the signing.

The two operate in similar markets – both clubs have dozens of players represented by the same agents, and as such those agents are looking at the same clubs to hawk their clients to, and who Rangers will interact with more regularly for new talent.

Hence Celtic will be after the same guys.

So while we’re hearing a lot in the press about Celtic’s transfer work, Rangers’ is more quiet.

Sure, if by deadline day not much has happened then we guess we can show a little more concern, but right now it’s pretty quiet.

It’s intriguing indeed – Ibrox Noise has in recent times had criticism for too much transfer speculation and stories, and we take that on the chin. But of absolute late the rumours and sources are very very quiet.

Either there’s just not much happening due to the Euros, or Rangers are indeed keeping things in house.

And there’s no issue with that.
