Sky journalist: This is how many signings Rangers want to make in January

By Will Butcher

Mark Warburton is looking to bring in at least two new faces to Rangers in January, according to a Sky journalist.

The Gers are expected to add to their squad in the upcoming month with a number of long-term injuries interrupting their progress in the Scottish Premiership.

Sky Sports reporter Jim White revealed on his personal Twitter account that Warburton was eyeing two signings, and possibly three if Joe Garner’s shoulder injury becomes serious.

Garner, 28, was taken off in the 15th minute of the Gers 2-1 loss to Celtic in the third Old Firm derby of the season, and could now be replaced if he is forced to watch from the sidelines for a sustained period.

The Gers have lost the likes of Niko Kranjcar and Jordan Rossiter to long-term injuries this season, while Joey Barton left after a controversial short stay at Ibrox.

That means the former Brentford boss is likely to be active in this month’s transfer window, with Warburton likely to add to his midfield.

The Scottish Sun claim two-time England international Leon Osman has been identified as Rangers’ top target for the January transfer window.

Warburton is also believed to be interested in a reunion with Spanish playmaker Jota, after the Daily Record claimed the former Brentford boss flew to Spain to strike a deal.

In other Rangers transfer news, fans reacted on Twitter in undecided fashion to the news that Osman was reportedly high on Warburton’s agenda.
