Heart of Midlothian manager John McGlynn insists he is still after some attacking reinforcements for the club.
The new Hearts boss has seen the likes of Rudi Skacel, Craig Beattie, Stephen Elliott and Gary Glen all released this summer and admits the strike area is something he needs to strengthen prior to next season.
However, without Rangers in the Scottish Premier League next season, McGlynn feels life could be tough for those clubs without plenty of money as the TV rights deal is likely to be a lot less than if the Glasgow giants were still in the top flight.
“The striking department is still a priority. We’re looking to bring someone in but things take time and you must be patient,” McGlynn said.
“I have until August 31 till the transfer window closes. I’d like to get someone in sooner rather than later but we’ll need to wait and see.
“Without Rangers every club is going to feel the pinch because they’re not going to get as much money in.”
