Only fringe play­ers set for Jan­uary ex­its at Ibrox

Evening Times - - CLASSIFIED -

STEVEN Ger­rard has re­it­er­ated his firm stance that none of his key play­ers will leave Rangers this winter as he looks to trim his Ibrox squad.

The Ibrox man­ager has been forth­right in his an­swers when ques­tioned about the fu­ture of star striker Al­fredo More­los in re­cent weeks and chair­man Dave King in­sisted on Tues­day he wouldn’t en­ter­tain a bid of £40m for the Colom­bian dur­ing the Jan­uary win­dow.

More­los is not the only big name that could at­tract in­ter­est over the next cou­ple of months but Rangers are un­der no pressure to sell as Ger­rard’s side bid for the Premier­ship ti­tle and do­mes­tic sil­ver­ware this term. And the only de­par­tures from Ibrox will be those that cur­rently find them­selves on the fringes of the first-team squad.

Ger­rard said: “None of my best play­ers will leave in Jan­uary. The only people who will be leav­ing here will be people who need game time for their own ca­reer.”
