​Rangers boss Gerrard plays down Liverpool raid

Rangers manager Steven Gerrard has commented on the recent links to Liverpool youngsters Harry Wilson, Dominic Solanke and Ben Woodburn.

The Scottish giants have been linked with these players in recent weeks, given the Gerrard connection.

Not only is Gerrard a Liverpool legend, but he also worked as the club's under-18s boss until taking the Rangers job.

He was asked by the Liverpool Echo about those links.

He said: "Brandon Barker [of Manchester City] is speculation. There's not enough room for all the wingers we've been linked with — Ryan Kent, Harry Wilson, Barker and Jordan Jones.

"I don't know how I'd fit them all in. I'm a fan of all the names, but it's speculation. Dominic Solanke? Ben Woodburn? Also speculation. But we need more forward options.

"The priority initially was in the defensive areas. We needed bodies in the centre of defence, and needed to give support in the full-back areas.

"There's a group of names we're monitoring and assessing in the forward areas."
