Steven Gerrard hopes to bolster his Rangers squad ahead of Friday’s transfer deadline with the signing of Eros Grezda.

The Ibrox manager confirmed the Osijek winger is having a medical ahead of a proposed £2 million switch to Glasgow.

And Ibrox sources are confident Nottingham Forrest defender Joe Worrall will also arrive on a season-long loan in time for the midnight deadline.

Grezda’s capture will come too late for him to feature against Russian side Ufa in the Europa League but Gerrard is excited about the Albanian international’s impending arrival.

Gerrard - who was reluctant to discuss his Worrall move before being given the green light by Forest - said: “Grezda is currently having a medical and I don’t want to say too much until it’s over the line.

“But he is an excellent player. The fans will love him because he can contribute in the final third. He’s quick, very direct and comes with international experience.

“According to Borna Barisic and Nikola Katic he was by a mile Osijek’s best player last season. All going well, he’ll be a big player for us moving forward.”
