How much will Glasgow Rangers have to improve to win the elusive 55th world-record title this 2019-20 season?

Not only would Steven Gerrard and the Gers fans love it to happen, but it would also end Celtic winning nine-in-a-row for a second time.

Will it be easily achieved without spending fortunes that Rangers simply don’t have? No, but they have already signed good players for free.

If new additions turn out be like Finland international Glen Kamara, who came early for only £50,000, then it could turn out brilliant in the long run.

Right winger Jake Hastie, 20, is actually a left-footer who enjoys coming inside on occasions to score good goals, and may become a first-team choice, but only if he strikes top form for Rangers immediately.

Left-sided star Jordan Jones, 24, could do a real job on that side of the Rangers midfield, as the six-footer was a major hit for Kilmarnock, who finished third in the league last term. 

High-quality recruitment of players will be the major task for Rangers due to the competition from English sides with lots more money.

Greg Stewart, the versatile 29-year-old ex-Rangers youth player, is finally re-united with his beloved team via Cowdenbeath, Dundee, Kilmarnock, Aberdeen and Birmingham City.

Steve Davis, who was on loan last season from Southampton, really made a difference to Rangers when he got himself back to match fitness.

Gerrard put him on a permanent deal at 34 and he will be required to continue in the same vein of form shown in that latter part of the season.

These new men also know Scottish football and the speed, intensity and physicality of the SPFL, so Hastie, Jones, Stewart and Davis won’t struggle in that department.

The boss has made six summer signings so far with a loan deal for Sheyi Ojo from Liverpool and the capture of George Edmundson from Oldham also confirmed.

Apart from Davis, the focus is on pace and young up and-coming-players.

Rangers already have some exceptionally good players when they are on form and playing consistently together without injuries. 

They just require another one or two special players to take Rangers from a good side up to exceptional. Lets hope Ryan Kent is one of them.

The pressure will increase this season with Celtic going for nine-in-a-row. That would be a nightmare situation for Rangers, so they must do something to stop it happening.
