Talks underway: Rangers in discussions to continue Murty overhaul - confirmed
Rangers manager Graeme Murty has confirmed that talks are underway for him to continue his overhaul of the first-team squad.
Murty has wasted no time in revamping the squad he inherited from Pedro Caixinha in October, signing four players on loan from England and seeing a couple of players return from their temporary deals away from Govan.
Sean Goss, Jamie Murphy, Jason Cummings and Russell Martin have all been snapped up while Andy Halliday and Michael O’Halloran are back at Ibrox following respective loan stints at Azerbaijani side Gabala and St Johnstone.
Speaking on Tuesday ahead of the clash with Aberdeen at Ibrox, Murty explained that he will continue to try and bring in new arrivals, but admitted that there have been other clubs in contact with him about players who could possibly leave Glasgow.
“Discussions are ongoing but there’s no point speculating about things,” he said, as shown on Sky Sports Scotland’s official Twitter account on Tuesday.
When asked if others may follow Carlos Pena and leave Ibrox this month, Murty said: “Potentially. People are in contact with us about some of our players.”

Rangers fans will get their first glimpse of Murty’s new-look squad in a competitive setting on Wednesday night when Derek McInnes’ Aberdeen travel to Ibrox.
All four of the new arrivals are expected to feature to some degree, however it is unlikely that Halliday or O’Halloran will be able to force themselves into the starting line-up after less-than-impressive loan stints.
