Opinion: Gerrard must use funds available to target loan move for Morgan Gibbs-White

According to the Daily Express, Rangers boss Steven Gerrard will be backed by the board in the transfermarket to make four new signings, and one of those should be a loan move for Wolves youngster Morgan Gibbs-White.

What’s the situation?

The Express reports that although Rangers announced losses of £14m recently, there will be funds available for Gerrard to add to his squad in the winter transfer window, and a midfielder is a target.

The Liverpool and England legend made 15 signings over the summer but was critical of his side after their Scottish Cup semi-final loss to Aberdeen recently, claiming that they didn’t have enough quality to compete for trophies.

Rangers got back to winning ways on the weekend though, despite leaving it late to beat St Mirren away from home, as Daniel Candeias and Alfredo Morelos both netted in the last ten minutes. However, a move for Gibbs-White in January would certainly bolster the midfield options.

Bolstering the midfield

The 18-year-old Wolves ace, who could develop his game under the guidance of Gerrard, has made five substitute appearances in the Premier League so far, and impressed when getting his longest stint of almost 30 minutes from the bench against Tottenham on Saturday evening.

However, the West Midlands side are now out of the Carabao Cup and opportunities for starts could become rarer for the youngster, meaning a loan move to Scotland could be his best bet in January.

Gibbs-White is an England U19 international and was a member of the triumphant U17 World Cup squad last year.
