Rangers boss Giovanni van Bronckhorst has revealed that the club will be ready for anything when the January transfer window opens.

The winter window will be the Dutchman’s first chance to add to his squad since taking charge at Ibrox in November. However, he has revealed that he is prepared for both potential incomings and outgoings.

Joe Aribo and Glen Kamara have both been tipped to join up with Steven Gerrard at Aston Villa.

However, Van Bronckhorst has already been told that the club will not have to sell any of their prized assets.

He was also given backing to add to his squad by sporting director Ross Wilson, if he deemed it necessary.

Speaking after the 2-0 win over St Mirren, Van Bronckhorst was quizzed on his transfer plans.

He told the media: “I don’t expect anything. You just have to be prepared, that’s the most important thing as a coach.

“You need to be ready for anything. Maybe nothing happens, maybe a lot, you never know.

“We will see at the end where we are as a club at the end of the window.

“As a coach you don’t want to get to the end of the window and have a smaller squad than when you started.

“We have to be prepared to decide what to do whatever comes our way.”
