Steven Gerrard has chosen all of his words very carefully since he moved to Rangers. Clearly recognising the importance that press conferences have, he’s been very tight-lipped about many topics.
That includes the topic of transfers. Rangers effectively brought in a new squad over the summer, but it’s evident that the Gers could do with a few more new faces.
Gerrard has offered a little bit of insight into his plans, and he’s identified one area that is needing improvement.
Speaking ahead of Rangers’ game with Aberdeen, he said: “Hopefully we will add a striker but isn’t every team reliant on a top number nine”.
SG: Hopefully we will add a striker but isn’t every team reliant on a top number nine. Next question.

Clearly, Gerrard views his attacking depth as needing further improvement, and that’s probably a fair judgement to make. Alfredo Morelos has been brilliantly lately, but we do lack depth beyond the lethal forward.
We’re competing in so many competitions this year, and so it’s important to have as much squad depth as possible. A new forward certainly wouldn’t go amiss, though anyone coming in would have a very tough time if they’re looking to displace El Buffalo.
It will be interesting to see exactly what Rangers are planning for January, as it’s tough to see Gerrard settling for just one solitary addition.
