This winter, the Light Blues must make decisions regarding transfers as two of their top players may opt to leave Glasgow for nothing at the end of their contracts.
If neither player can reach a new contract before then, Rangers have been instructed to sell both Ryan Kent and Alfredo Morelos during the January transfer window.
The performances of both attacking players this season have been criticised, and they both have one year left on their contracts.
In 14 games, Morelos has only scored twice, and winger Kent, despite playing a significant amount of time for manager Giovanni van Bronckhorst, has not made an impact.
In an exclusive interview with Glasgow Live and Cheeky Punter, former Ibrox star Alan Hutton evaluated the situation regarding Rangers’ January transfer activity.
He believes they need some right-back cover so that James Tavernier can rest and Adam Devine can grow.
He also believes that they need to move their attacking resources before they could potentially be released for free.
“They could lose two top assets for nothing in Morelos and Kent.
“I would like to see it sorted out with both players, when they are on their game, they are starters and make the team much better. I think it needs sorting before January and if they don’t sign before then, you have to look to move them on in that window to get the money that can be reinvested.
“I think they need backup for Tavernier, he’s been an unbelievable servant to the club, but he needs competition. His numbers are incredible for a full back but you need competition and rest from time to time.
“Hopefully, Devine will be the guy to take over eventually but he needs to prove that. His bar is very high so when he’s out of form it’s really noticeable.
“For me they need a creative player in the middle, I know Tom Lawrence is injured so he can help in that regard. That is something that they need when playing a side that is defensive at Ibrox, someone to break things down. I don’t feel they have the imagination there at this moment in time.”
