Rangers are working on selling five of their senior players before the transfer window shuts next month, Football Insider can reveal.

Recruitment chief Mark Allen is charged with finding new clubs for striker Kyle Lafferty, attacking pair Eros Grezda and Joe Dodoo, and midfield duo Graham Dorrans and Jason Holt.

Ibrox sources have told Football Insider that Rangers are hopeful of securing buyers for the quintet over the coming weeks as manager Steven Gerrard looks to trim his squad.

Lafferty and Dorrans are both crowd favourites based on either previous form in a Light Blues shirt, or for their lifelong allegiance to the club.

Rangers have made eight signings this summer, with Filip Helander, Jordan Jones, Steven Davis, Jake Hastie, George Edmundson, Greg Stewart and Joe Aribo joining permanently, and Sheyi Ojo arriving on a season-long loan from Liverpool.

Gerrard has claimed his squad is now “bloated” and that is set to mean an exodus of players who are high earners but not deemed as critical to his plans for next season.

Dorrans, Lafferty, Holt and Grezda were left out of the squad for the pre-season training camp in Portugal, although they have subsequently been involved in the build-up to the new campaign.

Dodoo, who has struggled to make an impact since signing from Leicester City three years ago on a free contract.

The attacker, 23, had a creditable campaign at English League One club Blackpool last season, scoring six goals and supplying four assists in 25 appearances in all competitions.

In other Rangers news, it can be REVEALED that the club have reached a verbal agreement to sign an attacker valued at £10million-plus.
