Steven Gerrard is not resting on his laurels in the final few days of the Scottish transfer window, as he seeks further recruits for his Rangers side.
The Liverpool icon has so far drafted in 12 new players to the club over the course of recent months and is looking to increase that tally before the window slams shut on Friday, with reports suggesting a deal is imminent.
Following the major injury blow suffered with Jamie Murphy’s knee problem that looks set to keep the Scotland international out of action for the remainder of the season, Gerrard has set his sights on a new winger to fill the void left by the 29-year-old.
Osijek’s Albania international Eros Grezda appears to be that man as widespread reports suggest Rangers are closing in on a deal worth around £2m for the six-cap winger – and fans have had their say on social media.
We have assembled some of the best reactions here.
Can he play right back !? 🙏

If it’s true I can only imagine Barisic has recommended him to the gaffer. Fingers crossed he is a cracker if it happens.

Glad we’re reinforcing although a bit disappointed the Ryan Gauld rumours didn’t come to pass

Outstanding piece of business when done. Like prime Ribbery

We need another centre half. Can’t understand us buying a winger before a centre half. Could it be that our CB target will depend on Europa League group stages qualification

We’re absolutely screaming out for another centre back. Madness it’s not being prioritised.

Just reading about him. He has been out there injured since May and has had little if any preseason. I don’t think he has play any games either.
