The transfer window is now closed for the Premier League and Championship, but the SPFL teams have three more weeks to try and strengthen their squads.

Rangers in that time will have to do some serious work to their squad – or they could miss out on the title once again.

One player they must replace from last year is Ryan Kent – who was a massive influence for the whole of last season.

He may well have only scored six goals and provided four assists, but his driving energy was crucial in so many games for the Gers.

Joe Aribo has arrived – and he has undoubted quality and also has good energy, but Kent’s influence could still be missed.

Several other wingers have arrived at Ibrox including Jordan Jones and Sheyi Ojo but many Rangers fans are not convinced that these two can replace Kent.

Steven Gerrard has said that the Gers are actively looking for new players – and now that the window in England’s top leagues has shut, he thinks he has more chance of getting some deals done.

One position that will need strengthening is left-back – as they currently only have Borna Barsic who can play there.

Certainly, a lot of Gers fans want Gerrard to sign another left-back in the remaining weeks of the transfer window.

Upfront Rangers have two quality strikers in Jermain Defoe and Alfredo Morelos, but Defoe is 36 now – and may not be able to play many games.

They let Kyle Lafferty go who was always a decent backup striker – so they could do with someone to support Morelos and Defoe.

Gerrard has so far added nine players to his squad – and his team is better than last year, but if they want to compete with Celtic, he will have to do a bit more business in the coming weeks.
