Gerrard needs more money claims Ferguson

Steven Gerrard needs more money claims ex-Ibrox captain

Rangers boss Steven Gerrard needs more money to "bolster" his squad, claims ex-Ibrox captain Barry Ferguson.

Gerrard has spent significantly over two seasons, including the £7m signing of Ryan Kent.

Ferguson reckons he needs more players with the right mentality.

"I think he knows himself he'll need to go and bolster the squad," he told PLZ Soccer.

"He does certainly need to go and get players that can come in and handle the pressures.

"It's clear that some players can't handle it."

Rangers won't sack Gerrard

Rangers won't sack Steven Gerrard, this season or in the summer.

According to a report, he still has the backing of the Ibrox board despite being knocked out of the Scottish Cup and falling 12 points behind Celtic in the league.

Lennon: I'd give Edouard five-year deal tomorrow

Lennon would give Edouard a five-year deal

Celtic boss Neil Lennon has said he would give Odsonne Edouard a five-year-deal tomorrow if it was up to him.

However, he revealed talks have yet to start with the Frenchman over a new contract.

“He’s improving all the time. He is a talismanic player for us and he’s been absolutely magnificent this season.

“There’s more to come from him and I hope he’s doing that here with us.

“I think there is improvement in him. He can get better. But he is already a highly talented player.”

Pundit claims Gerrard has had 14 failures

BBC pundit Tom English has said Steven Gerrard has 14 failures to his name in the transfer market.

On Sportsound he said: "He signed Kent and Barker and Jones and Flanagan.

"And if you want to throw in as well Lafferty, Grezda, McAuley, Polster, Hastie, Stewart, Ejaria, Coulibaly, Sadiq and Worrall. He signed them all. 14 of them.

"Failures."
