Ibrox transfer news: Van Bronckhorst could soon face major Rangers ‘overhaul’

Rangers head coach Giovanni van Bronckhorst watches on

The Rangers squad is likely to undergo a major summer overhaul, according to the Herald and Glasgow Times’ senior Gers reporter Chris Jack.

Giovanni van Bronckhorst was appointed as the reigning Scottish Premiership champions’ boss in November, but it appears he may be forced to contend with a host of outgoings in the coming months.

Who is likely to leave Rangers in the summer?

Eight of Rangers’ current squad are set to see their contracts come to an end in the summer, with those being Connor Goldson, Scott Arfield, Steven Davis, Leon Balogun, Allan McGregor and Andy Firth, along with loanees Amad Diallo and Aaron Ramsey.

Central defender Goldson looks certain to be heading out of Ibrox after it was revealed by Football Insider that he turned down the offer of a new contract before the turn of the year.

The report suggests the 29-year-old has set his sights on returning to the Premier League.

However, former Gers striker Kenny Miller, speaking on Clyde 1 Superscoreboard via Football Scotland, has tipped versatile midfielder Arfield to be offered fresh terms and Steve Lomas has made a similar claim on Davis.

Rangers, meanwhile, have the option of extending Balogun’s current agreement by a further 12 months.

Away from the stars whose contracts are set to expire, Glen Kamara, Joe Aribo and Ryan Kent have attracted interest in recent times.

What has Chris Jack said about the situation?

Jack believes Rangers have a busy summer ahead of them despite failing to spend a penny on transfer fees last month.

The journalist reckons van Bronckhorst opted against splashing the cash due to the Gers still being in contention for silverware.

Jack told GIVEMESPORT: “When you look ahead to the summer, there are guys that are likely to move on because of a few of the contract situations.

“Rangers feel they could potentially win the Scottish Cup and certainly defend the Scottish Premiership title and so they felt they were just as well leaving the money in their pocket until the summer, when I think there’s probably going to be a bit more of an overhaul of the squad.”

What is the capacity of Ibrox?

Who did Rangers bring in during the January transfer window?

James Sands became the first arrival of the van Bronckhorst era as he joined on an initial 18-month loan from Major League Soccer franchise New York City FC, although the switch has the option of being made permanent.

Teenage winger Amad Diallo has headed north of the border after reaching an agreement over a temporary move from Manchester United.

Rangers’ business was rounded off by welcoming Wales international central midfielder Aaron Ramsey to the club on loan from Italian giants Juventus.
