Philippe Clement Has Confirmed He Expects to Be Very Active During January Transfer Window

Philippe Clement has expressed his intent to be “very active” during the winter break as he endeavors to bolster his squad for the challenges ahead. The Belgian tactician has already made a significant move by securing the loan signing of Wolves forward Fabio Silva, who made a promising debut off the bench in the recent match against Kilmarnock.

With the players now enjoying a well-deserved fortnight off, Clement has affirmed that he will use this period to evaluate potential signings in collaboration with the club’s recruitment staff. Speaking after the 3-1 victory, the Rangers boss shared his plans, stating, “How active? I think very active every day by looking at players together with people in the club, and then we will see how many things we can make happen.”

Clement emphasized that while the club is eager to strengthen the squad, they won’t be making wholesale changes. He reassured fans, saying, “The things we want, we’re not going to sign 10 players, don’t worry.” The addition of Fabio Silva, a forward who brings much-needed depth to the attacking lineup, has already been a positive start for Rangers.

Despite achieving success in the form of a League Cup triumph and maintaining a strong position in multiple competitions, there are lingering questions about the squad’s overall depth. Clement, who took over from Michael Beale, has done an admirable job in steering the team on multiple fronts. However, he acknowledges the need for reinforcements, particularly after experiencing his first defeat against Celtic. Strengthening the squad during the winter transfer window could be crucial in mounting a serious challenge for the title in the second half of the campaign.

As Rangers look ahead to the remainder of the season, fans will be eagerly anticipating further additions to the squad that could potentially make a significant impact on their pursuit of silverware. With Clement’s proactive approach and commitment to enhancing the team, the winter break promises to be a period of anticipation and excitement for Rangers supporters.
