Pedro Caixinha did more harm than he did good over the summer months when overhauling the Rangers squad.

Maybe two or three of his signings have shown any kind of quality and that leaves the Light Blues with a lot of work to do in the January transfer window to make amends once they find their new manager.

All the fans and pundits seem to believe that the next Gers manager is someone who ‘knows Rangers’, so why should that be any different with the playing squad?

The Glasgow giants therefore must make a move for Stoke midfielder Charlie Adam in the winter as he is reportedly keen to quit the Premier League club over a lack of football.

The Telegraph has reported that Adam, 31, is likely to flogged by Mark Hughes in the transfer window, and that means Rangers absolutely must make an audacious swoop to strengthen their midfield.

Ryan Jack has started to show some improvement in the area but there are still question marks surrounding Graham Dorrans, Jason Holt and Carlos Pena.

Former Ibrox ace Adam left Rangers in 2009 before moving south of the border with Blackpool, setting the platform for him to move on to Liverpool and now Stoke.

The Scottish Premiership club is crying out for that kind of experience in their side, someone who is a ‘Rangers man’ and can add some fighting spirit into a midfield which is lightweight and offers very little aggression off the ball.

Adam is trusted to play in any kind of central role, whether he is guarding the defence or occupying a playmaker role in behind the strikers.

The 26-times Scotland international is said to be earning over £40,000-a-week at the Bet365, but if he is that desperate to quit than there’s no doubt that he would take a pay cut, especially if it means he’ll get to return to his old stomping ground.
