Rangers: Jordan Campbell drops Ibrox squad claim

Jordan Campbell from the Athletic has dropped a Rangers squad claim that could leave Ibrox boss Giovanni van Bronckhorst delighted.

What’s the latest?

The news surrounds the Rangers squad ahead of the rest of the season and Campbell gave an update via his Twitter page, saying:


“Would take something huge to alter Rangers’ plans for the squad this season. Katic & Kelly likely to leave but everyone else will play a role.”

This should offer some comfort to Van Bronckhorst and the Rangers faithful knowing that the squad is settled and ready to embark on yet another gruelling campaign.

More signings look unlikely

Following a tepid start to the summer transfer window, there has been an influx of activity during the previous three weeks which has given the Ibrox side a solid spine to the squad.

Ben Davies, Antonio Colak, Tom Lawrence, Rabbi Matondo, and Malik Tillman arrived at Ibrox as the Dutchman gave the side somewhat of a makeover, with the inevitable departures of Joe Aribo and Calvin Bassey, new replacements were required.

The Gers defeated Union Saint-Gilloise 3-2 on aggregate to reach the Champions League play-off round where Dutch side PSV Eindhoven await them.

The comeback victory will have given the team confidence ahead of the mouth-watering tie and shows that Van Bronckhorst’s side appears to be gelling together quite well.

The manager has also had somewhat of a clear out of fringe players this summer, with Glenn Middleton, Jack Simpson, Cedric Itten, and Andy Firth all departing the club and freeing up space for the new faces.

Campbell’s update also states that Nikola Katic and Stephen Kelly are also likely to leave as first-team football appears unlikely for the pair. With Alex Lowry and Leon King likely to continue their development in the first team this season, it proves there is a pathway from academy to senior football at the club.

Will Rangers defeat St Johnstone tomorrow?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Van Bronckhorst will be delighted at how his squad is shaping up, despite the performances in the first couple of matches falling short of the high Ibrox standard. St Johnstone awaits at Ibrox tomorrow ahead of the crucial Champions League first leg on Tuesday and three points will be expected.
