Rangers eyeing strike reinforcements admits McCoist

Rangers boss Ally McCoist admits he needs to bring in a striker or two this winter.

The reigning Scottish champions were already dealing with the loss of Steven Naismith for the remainder of the season but will now be without Kyle Lafferty for four to five weeks after he pulled his hamstring in yesterday's 3-0 win over Motherwell.

Add to that the fact that leading scorer Nikica Jelavic, who is injured himself, could still depart for a Premier League club this January and there is cause for concern as Rangers chase a fourth straight title.

"I only sat down briefly with Craig before the game because there was a lot going on," McCoist said after the Motherwell clash.

"But I'll sit down with him tonight and we'll have a wee chat. Obviously, we need strengthened in forward areas.

"I couldn't put a figure on it and say we need three, four, five or whatever. But we need bodies in. Unless I'm mistaken we only have one fit centre forward at the club, who did well today, but we need to strengthen.

"I have a list of names. I know what we want and what we need. And I know what we'd like to get."
