Rangers ready to offload four midfielders as Michael Beale overhaul begins to take shape
Rangers are reportedly ready to offload a quartet of midfielders as Michael Beale begins to overhaul his squad this summer.
The Ibrox outfit are expected to have some form of an overhaul at the end of the season, with an aging midfield a major area that needs to be addressed.
Steven Davis (38), Scott Arfield (34) and Ryan Jack (30) are all out of contract at the end of this season. And there are currently no signs of any potential renewals of their deals in the near future.
Meanwhile, Football Insider reports that there are also ‘question marks’ over the future of Glen Kamara, who is a target for Premier League and European clubs.
Malik Tillman will return to Bayern Munich when his loan expires this summer, with the German giants ready to utilise the player in their first-team squad next season.
Rangers did add Belgium Under-21 midfielder Nicolas Raskin in January. And the 21-year-old made his mark with an assist in the weekend cup win over Partick Thistle.
Davis, Arfield, and Jack have racked up a combined total of more than 750 appearances during their time at Ibrox.
However, Football Insider adds that Beale has preferred a 4-2-3-1 setup since taking over at the club in November and John Lundstram has been one of his ever-presents.
Rangers et for new era under Beale
Allan McGregor, Alfredo Morelos, Ryan Kent, and Filip Helander will also be out of contract in the summer. And the report adds that Helander is not expected to play for the club again.
Rangers are also looking to bring in a new stopper to replace club stalwart McGregor, who is expected to retire.
Beale feels he needs to freshen up a Gers squad that has struggled to keep pace with rivals Celtic this season.
The Ibrox outfit are currently nine points adrift of Celtic in the Scottish Premiership. However, they will get a chance to take some to deny their Old Firm rivals some silverware when they face off in the Scottish League Cup later this month.
