Steven Gerrard has admitted that he is not finished in the transfer window, despite already bringing 10 new faces to Rangers since taking over.

Despite confirming his interest in enhancing the Gers squad, he would not mention names out of respect for other clubs.

“It’s no secret we are trying to strengthen in one or two areas,” Gerrard told the press.

“The idea is to have two good players to cover each position. We are not far away from that.

“We still want to add a few targets into the group, which are ongoing. But I won’t be mentioning names or players that belong to different football clubs. I don’t think that is right. But there are a couple of targets that we are after that are ongoing.”

Hearts forward Kyle Lafferty is understood to be one of Rangers’ targets after a £200,000 bid was rejected, with their Scottish Premiership rivals holding out for £750,000.

In his 42 league appearances last year he found the net 12 times, and would definitely add depth to Gerrard’s squad.

Lafferty enjoyed a successful spell at Ibrox Stadium back in 2008, scoring 38 goals before departing for FC Sion in 2012.

Gerrard is also keen to add another central defender to his ranks, as he looks to mount a challenge for the league title.

Last season, Rangers were 12 points adrift of the Champions Celtic and will need massive improvements if they are to overhaul their fierce rivals.
