Glasgow Rangers’ new signing Matt Polster plays in various different positions, not unlike handy Andy Halliday. His favoured position is right-back, but is ready to start anywhere for the Gers this season.
The Ibrox giants also signed Jermain Defoe and Steven Davis in January, who are currently settling in with their new teammates and will soon be up to top speed with another game or two starts.
Goalkeeper Andy Firth was signed as back-up to Allan McGregor and Wes Foderingham.
With Jordan Rossiter’s loan to Bury confirmed and Dundee’s best player Glen Kamara signing for Rangers late on deadline day for an undisclosed fee, this is now the full squad.
Foderingham was also expected to leave on a loan-deal, but it didn’t materialise, so Roddy McCrorie was sent to Morton on a four-month loan.
This has left Steven Gerrard with a huge amount of players for every position clearly covered in numbers.

James Tavernier, Jon Flanagan, Gareth McAuley, Connor Goldson, Nikola Katic, Joe Worrall, Borna Barisic, Andy Halliday, Lee Wallace, Jordan Houston with new signing Matt Polster.
Ross McCrorie, Ryan Jack, Scott Arfield, Lassana Coulibaly, Graham Dorrans and new signings of Steven Davis and Glen Kamara.
Daniel Candeias, Alfredo Morelos, Jermain Defoe, Kyle Lafferty, Ryan Kent, Eros Grezda, Glenn Middleton, Jamie Murphy and Serge Atakayi.
My personal selection from all the players available to start is as follows:
In a new inventive style of play in an attempt to win more points away from home. A revolutionary line up of 2-3-4-1.
Aberdeen, Kilmarnock, Hearts, Livingston, St Johnstone, Motherwell, Hamilton, Dundee and St Mirren usually play 4-5-1 against us at home.
Our two centre halves look after their centre forward, and full backs and defensive midfielder cope with the runners backing up their main striker.
