The 2017/18 Scottish football season isn’t even over yet, with the Scottish Cup Final to come this weekend, but the Light Blues are already busy planning for life under Gerrard, with the Liverpool legend set to officially take charge on June 1st.
His first signing is Scott Arfield, who has spent the last six seasons playing English Premier League or Championship football.
It’s a fantastic bit of business for the Gers and Arfield brings determination, hard work and experience to what has been a lightweight midfield at Ibrox this season.
Fans are certainly excited to see what he can offer, believing that his transfer is an important first step for Gerrard’s new look Rangers.
The challenge will now be bringing in players of a similar quality who can help the club compete for major honours next season.
Supporters took to Twitter to share their thoughts on it all…
