Barry Ferguson Suggests Potential for Philippe Clement to Secure Two Additional Incoming Transfers

Barry Ferguson has raised the prospect of Rangers making two additional signings during the ongoing January transfer window under the management of Philippe Clement. The Light Blues have already reinforced their squad this month with the loan acquisition of Fabio Silva from Wolves, but Ferguson believes there may be more to come as Rangers aim to surpass Celtic at the summit of the Scottish Premiership.

Ferguson commended Clement’s strategic decision to allow Sam Lammers to leave on loan for the second half of the season, thereby freeing up wages at Ibrox. According to Ferguson, this move demonstrates good management, and he is optimistic that Clement will utilize the released funds to bring in at least one more January signing, potentially even two.

“That’s good management in my book, and I’m also positive he has made that decision to free up some wages for at least one more January signing. Possibly even two. As things stand – with Kemar Roofe and Danilo still months away from returning and Abdallah Sima off to the Africa Cup of Nations – he needs to bolster his options in attack,” Ferguson stated in his article.

The football expert emphasizes the necessity for Rangers to be active in the January transfer market, acknowledging the temporary addition of Silva as an excellent starting point for the month. However, Ferguson asserts that the Light Blues require additional reinforcements beyond the Portuguese forward.

As per Ferguson’s observations, Clement faces a shortage of forward options with Roofe and Danilo sidelined, Sima participating in the Africa Cup of Nations, and Cyriel Dessers experiencing a dip in form. The article underscores the urgency for Rangers to conduct further business during the January transfer window to fortify their attacking options and maintain their competitive edge in the Scottish Premiership.
