Rangers appear to be on the verge of landing the signing of Swedish global defender Filip Helander, according to reports - but the Swede's arrival will give manager Steven Gerrard a problem when it comes to Rangers European squad.
Rangers manager Steven Gerrard confirmed on Tuesday night that he was closing in on a permanent deal for a defender and Swedish newspaper Aftobladet claims Helander is on his way to Glasgow in a deal worth about £4million.
The Whites wasted no time in moving within the window, signing no less than five players (Jack Harrison, Ben White, Rafa Mujica, Jack Clarke and Helder Costa) in the space of three days and selling even more, two of which were firmly part of their first team squad last time out in Jack Clarke and Pontus Jansson.
The 17-year-old attacking midfielder had been linked with the likes of Roma and Liverpool after being named Rangers academy's player of the year last season and featuring in the SFA Youth Cup final win over Celtic.
Rangers took on Gibraltar Premier Division side St. Joseph's in the first-leg of their Europa League qualifier on Wednesday, and the boss came away happy with their 4-0 victory. "I don't think we are at a stage just yet this squad and this team where we can pick and choose where we turn on the gas".Читайте также: American Airlines Apologizes to Doctor Ordered to Cover Shorts
"I thought we showed fantastic patience and eventually we took one of our chances", Gerrard told Rangers TV.
The 39-year-old is now impressing in his first job as a manager and has his eyes on dethroning Celtic in the Premiership over the coming season.
"We never want to come off the gas", he said.
"We got four tonight, but it possibly could have been a few more".При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
