Rangers fans were no doubt left gutted after their team crashed out of the Scottish Cup to Aberdeen on Tuesday after a 2-0 defeat.
This means that they will finish the season without any silverware – unless they pull off a miracle and Celtic crash and burn in their pursuit of the Scottish Premiership title.
Gerrard will have one eye cast on next season, and most importantly, which players he should sign to improve on what they already have and make a serious bid for trophies.
One player he must consider is Copenhagen centre-back Denis Vavro, a player whose 6ft 3in [Transfermarkt] frame means that he comes with the physical presence that the Gers have been lacking in recent times.
Barry Ferguson wrote in his Daily Record column that his former club should be on the look out for another defender in order to increase on their quality.
“The manager still needs to increase quality in other areas of his team. One more striker, one more midfielder and another defender. Guys who can become the real spine of his team. Guys who can provide the kind of backbone that was missing the other night against Aberdeen,” he said.
He is absolutely spot on, and come the opening of the window, Rangers must pounce as soon as possible. It was clear that Rangers lacked physicality in the loss to the Dons the other night, but signing Vavro would soon put that issue to bed.
The Gers need a centre-half who is capable in the air and is brilliant at winning aerial duels. The 22-year-old can do both of those things – and with Joe Worrall set to return to Nottingham Forest when his loan ends in the summer, there will be a void to fill.
Gerrard would be onto a winner if Rangers swooped for the Slovak defender, as he is the manager’s ideal signing.
