Rangers fans feeling a little panicky, perhaps ourselves at Ibrox Noise included, at the lack of signings so far in this transfer window, might want to look at two historic European giants (well, one of them anyway) formerly managed by Carlo Ancelotti – Everton and AC Milan.

How many signings have these two made so far in this entire window?

One, and it was made by Everton, and only just today.

AC Milan, buoyant off the back of winning Serie A for the first time since 2011, have signed absolutely no one bar making a loan deal permanent.

Instead the Rossoneri have lost a host of players, particularly Duarte, Hauge, Romagnoli, Ibrahimovic and the big one, Ivory Coast’s Franck Kessie.

Indeed, the Toffees themselves have just lost their biggest player as well, while Kenny went to Germany and Delph went elsewhere too.

What we are saying is Rangers are not the only side looking a little bit modest when it comes to a summer rebuild.

Milan have just won their league, and have a UCL campaign next season, but have done next to nothing in the transfer market – Liverpool’s Divock Origi could be the exception to that but it’s not over the line yet.

Everton have staved off relegation but done next to nothing to rebuild and prepare for a proper assault on the PL and be safer this season. Bar signing a Burnley player.

So we’re in decent company for clubs who appear to be doing very little.

Of course, fans of all these clubs want more, but we can’t all be Manchester City.

  1. I’m not getting over anxious but I hope there is a plan. We need some good solid fresh faces to give some completion and cover . Onwards 56 .

  2. We’ve not sold any big names so far so iam not panicing,but I think we need some back up if Alfie goes down again,then we will be limping to the finish line again


  3. I’m working on the assumption that we’re not going to sign a bunch of Bosmans or we would already have signed them given that their free status has been known for some time. In that case we must’ve planning to splash the cash. So let’s get on with it as decent players in our price range will be few and far between and will be snapped up quickly.
