Rangers plotting three more January signings

An update has emerged from Ibrox on Rangers’ transfer plans for the rest of the January transfer window under Gio van Bronckhorst.

What’s the talk?

According to Herald Scotland, the Gers are expected to remain active throughout the rest of the month following the signing of James Sands from New York City FC.

The report claims that van Bronckhorst wants to add a right-back to his squad to replace Nathan Patterson, whilst also completing pre-contract deals for both John Souttar and Danilho Doekhi of Hearts and Vitesse Arnhem respectively.

Excitement for Rangers fans

This update will surely leave the fans at Ibrox excited, as it suggests that there is plenty more to happen between now and the window slamming shut at the end of the month.

It means that supporters can remain glued to their phones or laptops following the latest rumours and pondering who may or may not be playing for the Scottish giants in the second half of the campaign. Transfer season is an exciting time of year for fans, as they speculate whether certain players will or won’t be a good signing, which they may currently be doing with Sands following his arrival.

They could also be excited at the prospect of both Doekhi and Souttar agreeing deals to join the club this month. The pair are out of contract at the end of the season and this latest update claims that the Gers want to obtain both of them rather than just one. This means that the club could enhance their squad with two strong additions for a combined transfer fee of £0 ahead of the summer.

With Connor Goldson and Leon Balogun’s contracts expiring in July, these prospective deals could be particularly important for the Gers. Sealing transfers for both targets now would alleviate any pressure to replace the aforementioned Rangers duo ahead of the 2022/23 campaign, and also give Doekhi and Souttar ample time to prepare for playing under Van Bronckhorst in the Premiership.

Supporters will also be buzzing that the club are prepared to sign a direct replacement for Patterson. Sands is capable of playing at right-back and he could have been used as a utility option to slot in for James Tavernier when required, but Van Bronckhorst is seemingly keen on a natural player to fill that role, and fans will surely love that the manager wants that instead of fielding players out of position.
