Many Rangers fans are fully expecting manager Philippe Clement to have quite a busy summer transfer window as he more fully reshapes his squad in readiness for his first full pre season campaign, and season in charge after his October arrival as Michael Beale’s replacement back in the year of 2023/24.

Our 50 year old Belgian gaffer’s impact was pretty immediate, and few could argue we did not go on to enjoy a good season, albeit inconsistency issues ultimately cost us at the death when it came to our challenge for the title – but there was enough general improvement for optimism for the 12 months that lie ahead, especially if our gaffer is able to do the business that he wants in the coming months and football tips today would imply he will achieve just that.

We have already seen a number of departures as contracts naturally come to an end this summer, and it is now being claimed that a far more prolific striker features very highly indeed on Clement’s target shortlist. Many regulars at Ibrox would have been demanding that this was the case for this summer, as even though we were the second highest scorers in the league last season, there is room for improvement.

At points we had the chances to kill sides off and get more points on the board, but a mixture of form and injury issues meant that this simply did not happen, especially when we needed other players to step up and do the job that Abdallah Sima, Cyriel Dessers and James Tavernier had been doing for us in front of goal.

Given the departures that we have already seen this summer with contracts expiring, we also obviously have space at the top of the park for a new arrival who will either steal and earn a more regular starting spot, or simply be a far more reliable backup option for Clement to lean on when he needs to.

If anything, the Gers arguably have two spots available in the frontline now in reality, as it is being reasonably widely reported that given Fabio Silva’s performances following his loan spell with us, we have already decided that he will return to Wolverhampton Wanderers as we have no intention of attempting to now secure a permanent move for the 21 year old.

We also now know that Sam Lammers will be returning from his loan spell at Utrecht, as given their own business so far this summer, it is highly unlikely that they will follow through on signing him either – pre season may well decide his future, as Clement may feel he needs another chance even if an educated guess says many fans do not.

With a number of positions to strengthen this summer, as well as strengthening our over all squad depth and improving on that front to better counter the injuries and suspensions that will come in the year ahead, fans will simply have to see if we do add one or two further strikers, or whether Lammers returns to being a real option, but the talk right now on the rumour mill is that we do want as a minimum one fresh face in.

Again, if that speculation is true, it means fans can probably expect another arrival quite shortly because it is reported that we want the new man in for pre season and well ahead of our entry into the Champions League qualifying stages in mid August, so presumably that position is now our top target whilst other options will continue to bubble along in the background.
