Steven Gerrard confirms Rangers transfer plans after becoming new manager
The ex-Liverpool midfielder leaves his post as the Reds’ U-18s coach to take up the role.
He will start the job in the summer and there is intense speculation about what he will do with the squad at his disposal.
Rangers are not flush with cash and plenty of pundits and former players have warned they must give Gerrard the right backing in the transfer market.
Asked in his unveiling what he plans to do this summer, Gerrard simply replied: “We’ll strengthen.”
Rangers owner Dave King also spoke about the transfer plans.
“We’re well on the way to support what Steven and (director of football) Mark (Allen) want to do in the summer transfer window,” he said.
“I can’t think of there being a bigger signing for Scottish football and Rangers in recent years.
“People all over the world will be watching to see how Steven gets on in the job.
“It’s very good for Rangers and Scottish football.”
Gerrard’s contract starts at the beginning of June.
