The three most exciting loan deals that Rangers should be pursuing this summer

This summer’s transfer window could not be more important for Rangers.

With the arrival of Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard as manager comes great expectations. Gerrard is a born winner and hasn’t come to Glasgow with the intention of playing second fiddle to Brendan Rodgers’ Celtic. He’s here to do business and win trophies.

Having already made first team signings in Allan McGregor, Scott Arfield and Jamie Murphy, it’ll now be about bringing in some of Gerrard’s own targets, with plenty of players linked in the few weeks since he was unveiled.

The right loan player can make a real difference to the first team squad, but there’s no use in bloating the squad with players you don’t need, simply to make a few signings.
