Gerrard ready to ring January changes that will keep Hearts and Celtic on their toes

Rangers are trailing Hearts and Celtic by five and four points respectively following 11 round of Scottish Premiership games, and without a doubt, the Light Blues are very much one of the main challengers in the title race. 

Manager Steven Gerrard has greatly improved the side since his arrival a few months ago, and the Ibrox club's change of fortunes can be attributed to a major squad overhaul over the summer transfer window. 

15 players were brought in, while a handful also left, but Gerrard is more than keen to add to his squad in January in order to strongly challenge for the league title during the second half of the campaign.

According to the Daily Express, Rangers want to sign four new players during the winter transfer window, with a creative midfielder, a centre midfielder and centre-back top of their plans. 

To that effect, director of football Mark Allen and the club's scouts have been going around the world in search of quality, yet, affordable players. 

The winter shake-up is also most likely to see Umar Sadiq, who joined on a season-long loan from Roma leave after the 21-year-old failed to impress.

Rangers recently suffer a huge annual loss of £14million but it doesn't seem that will deter them from splashing the cash when the transfer window re-opens. 


The Light Blues squad have been one of the best in the land without a doubt, but strengthening their ranks in January could end up being the difference between winning the title or not, and it promises to be a fierce contest between the current top three teams during the season's latter half.
