The transfer window has proven a successful one for Rangers so far and it is certainly exciting to think about how we could line-up at the start of next season.

Some very good players have been signed in this window with the likes of Sheyi Ojo and Joe Aribo joining an already decent looking squad.

There is plenty of opportunity for us to reel Celtic in next year, then, but one bit of transfer chat doing the rounds at the moment should be forgotten.

The Scottish Sun has reported how Daniel Sturridge has had his odds on joining us slashed but we need to take a reality check here.

Yes, Steven surely has a great relationship with him but there are practical issues that need to be looked at.

His wages will surely be huge and at not even 30 he will feel as though he still has another big contract left in him.

Indeed, we, unfortunately, can’t offer a massive pay deal and nor can we offer him Champions League football – he must feel as though he can play in that next year.

Finally, as good as he could be, he does get injured a lot. We’d be putting a lot of money into a player that, though remaining fit last season for Liverpool, has a record of getting knocks.

Indeed, he didn’t actually play much last season and I’d argue there’s little to really suggest that he could last the rigours of a long Scottish campaign.

Exciting sounding, but not worth it.
