(Reuters) – Rangers are aiming to recruit more players in an effort to create a strong and well-balanced squad that can excel on both domestic and European fronts, manager Steven Gerrard has said.
The Scottish club have signed nine new players, including defender Connor Goldson and winger Jamie Murphy from Premier League side Brighton and Hove Albion, full-back Jon Flanagan from Liverpool and midfielder Scott Arfield from Burnley.
Gerrard’s team has also been bolstered by the arrival of AS Roma forward Umar Sadiq and midfielders Ovie Ejaira and Lassana Coulibaly on season-long loan deals.
“There’s no number on it,” Gerrard told reporters. “We’ll be there when we’re there.
“When I see that the team and the squad is strong enough to compete against the best sides domestically and also against teams we are going to come up against in the Europa, that’s when we will be ready.
