Rangers midfieler Sean Goss has confirmed that he will return to QPR this summer after his Ibrox loan came to an end – and the 22-year-old’s departure should be the start of a summer exodus under Steven Gerrard.
Goss thanked everyone at Ibrox in a heartfelt post on his personal Instagram account as he confirmed his time at Ibrox is up – and there should be as many as fifteen more players who follow him out the door over the coming weeks.
Fringe players like Harry Forrester, Joe Dodoo and Andy Halliday are almost certain to be on the way out while first-team regulars like James Tavernier and Wes Foderingham could also find themselves surplus to requirements under Gerrard.
Fellow loanees Russell Martin and Jason Cummings look unlikely to follow Jamie Murphy in signing a permanent deal this summer so will also be expected to return to their parent clubs.
Despite doing fairly well during his loan at Ibrox, Goss did not perform consistently enough to merit a longer deal and it is something that can be said for so many of his team-mates at Ibrox.
Given a clean slate to pick from the current squad, there are likely only a handful of first-team players that there is any real case to stay at the club long-term under Gerrard and the Ibrox boss will be well aware of the size of the task waiting in Glasgow for him.
While a third massive rebuild in as many years is the last thing anyone Rangers fans want, after the shambolic end to the season under Graeme Murty and then Jimmy Nicholl it is clear that it is what will be required this summer for the Gers to challenge bitter rivals Celtic next season.
In other Rangers transfer news, the club are in hot pursuit of a 6’4″ colossus who could be signing of the season.
