Despite Steven Gerrard’s phenomenal work in Glasgow this season, Rangers are looking at some ugly news. They may have one hand on this Premiership trophy, but according to The Telegraph, Stewart Robinson has admitted that the club will have to shed some of their most important players at the end of the campaign.
The Gers are absolutely flying in the Scottish league this season, thanks to stellar performances from the likes of James Tavernier and Kemar Roofe. But the Glaswegian outfit is reportedly hurting from more than £15million in losses from their annual accounts.
They are now forced to find a way to raise funds before next summer, and this will involve offloading some vital personnel. It also spells an extremely quiet summer transfer window for the league winners-elect.
Whilst this is a nightmare situation for Gerrard and the Gers, it’s a dream for their bitter neighbours and rivals.
Celtic have looked a shadow of their former selves this season after struggling to assert themselves in both the Premiership and Europa League. As the weeks tick by, it looks more and more likely that the Hoops will finish second to their arch enemies. A disappointing run of form has seen the gap between the two stretch to a hefty 13 points.
Because of their lacklustre season, Neil Lennon’s future as manager hangs in the balance. However, he could resolve this with a positive January transfer window. The news of Rangers being forced to sell key players could also give Celtic a major boost.
Not only could this mean the Bhoys will have the stronger roster next campaign, but Lennon could once again scrape together a title-winning side and bank himself another year at the hilt of such a successful club.
