'We've been busy' - Rangers boss Steven Gerrard provides transfer update

The summer transfer window will be a difficult one for clubs including Rangers with so much uncertainty

Rangers boss Steven Gerrard won’t allow the club to be caught out when football returns and the transfer window opens.

While there is significant uncertainty surrounding Scottish football and when teams will be able to return to action, Gerrard is making sure he and his team are well prepared for the 2020/2021 season.

Gerrard is in constant dialogue with sporting director Ross Wilson with the aim of making progress on the field.

"I wouldn't be in a position to give names, but what I can say to the Rangers fans is we haven't stopped since we've gone into the pandemic,” he told talkSPORT.

"We've been as busy as ever watching players in different positions, turning longlists into shortlists.

"Obviously, times are strange at the moment and we have to continue to follow the government guidelines. I think it will be small steps out of it before we get going again.

"But one thing's for sure - I won't stop trying to make this Rangers team as good as I can, that's for sure."

Gerrard admits the speed at which the SPFL have moved to terminate the current campaign has not sat well with him or the club.

The Ibrox boss would have preferred the league body to take a leaf out of the Premier League and English Football League’s book of giving as much time as possible for the 2019/2020 season to be finished.

"For myself, and everyone at Rangers was on the same page, what we wanted was to give it the best chance we can.

"There was certainly a different in the view from the Premier League and the EFL that they wanted to wait and give this season every single chance to be played out.

"Listen, we all know and respect the fact there might come a stage where that is impossible to happen, we get that.

"There seems to be an almighty rush from where we were to finish it and get it done, get the boats in as soon as possible. That didn't sit well at all.

"For me, our view hasn't changed on it at Rangers. We want to get back playing and finish the season off when it's physically safe to do that, because we all respect the situation that we're in.”
