Rangers have already completed three signings since Steven Gerrard was appointed manager - and they're planning plenty more business over the summer.

Gerrard will be hoping that the arrivals of Allan McGregor, Scott Arfield and Jamie Murphy will help 'Gers challenge Celtic next season.

The Hoops won the Scottish Premiership for the seventh consecutive season, finishing 12 points ahead of their rivals.

Rangers have brought in the inexperienced Gerrard in a bid to end their record barren spell.

They last won a trophy in 2011, beating Celtic in the League Cup final thanks to a Nikica Jelavic extra-time winner.

Ibrox chairman Dave King believes Celtic’s dynasty of dominance will collapse like “a pack of cards” if Rangers can win one title.

But they'll definitely need to freshen things up if they hope to even challenge Celtic.

Gerrard after Liverpool youngster

Rangers have been linked with a number of Liverpool youngsters since Gerrard's appointment.

The 37-year-old coach - who will give up his punditry job on BT Sport - was in charge of the Liverpool youth team before accepting the job in Glasgow.

Gerrard has been linked with loan moves for Dominic Solanke and Rhian Brewster but there is a new name on his wishlist.

According to the Daily Record, Rangers are hoping to sign Liverpool's Harry Wilson on loan.

The 21-year-old winger has impressed on loan at Hull City this season and the Tigers reportedly want to bing him back next season.

As per the Daily Record, "the Ibrox club would need to pay Liverpool a loan fee of £250,000 plus penalties if he doesn’t play enough games."

Wilson joined the Liverpool youth academy 13 years ago and could be tempted by the opportunity to play under a club legend.

Huddersfield Town and Leeds United are also keeping tabs on Wilson, who scored seven goals in fourteen appearances for at Hull.

The highly-rated Welsh international is hoping to be part of Jurgen Klopp's plans in the future.

"I have been at Liverpool since the age of eight, so that’s always been my dream to play in the first team," said Wilson in March.

"So hopefully I can do that. If that’s not to come next season hopefully it will in the future."

It promises to be a very busy transfer window at Rangers.

But will they have enough to challenge Brendan Rodgers' Celtic next season? Let us know what you think by leaving a comment below.
