Rangers manager Graeme Murty has revealed that the club intend to make signings during the January transfer window, adding that the club needs players that will “suit our needs”.
The recently-appointed Gers boss, quoted by the club’s official Twitter account, is wary of “market forces” dictating the transfer plans, but added that won’t derail the signing of players.
“We will make sure we get the best players to suit our needs. Market forces will dictate, but we need to make sure we get the best for this club” he said.

The need for new signings is certainly great at Ibrox, as Rangers are in a battle for second place in the Scottish Premiership table with Aberdeen, who they currently trail by three points.
The Gers also have a long injury list as important players like Graham Dorrans, Kenny Miller and potentially Ryan Jack have all been ruled out for a considerable amount of time.
The Gers are next in action against Celtic in the final league match before the winter break. They currently trail their old rivals by 11 points in the league table.
Manager Graeme Murty can take heart though from the fact that when he was in charge of Rangers on an interim basis last season they achieved a 1-1 draw against all odds thanks to a late goal from Clint Hill.
The first match between the sides this season saw Celtic comfortably win 2-0 at Ibrox in September thanks to goals from Tom Rogic and Leigh Griffiths.
