Rangers determined to tie up current stars - McDowall

Rangers assistant Kenny McDowall insists that the club is determined to tie up their current players before they go out and get any new signings. The three-peat Scottish champions have a host of top players either out of, or coming to the end of their contracts, and McDowall said it is a priority to make sure these guys, like veteran David Weir, are happy at Ibrox.

"The priority before we bring anyone in is to look after the guys who have served the club well and deserve to be looked after," he told Rangers TV.

"Davie has been an immense guy to work with both on and off the park and I think he's had everyone's respect and deservedly so.

"We'll talk with Davie once his holiday is over and see what his plans are and see where that takes us.

"It's an important position that he plays and we're working hard at that area. We have targets there as well so we'll wait to see what happens."

As for any transfer targets, McDowall said the club is certainly searching for some fresh faces.

"We're looking at the moment and we have targets in mind, but it's obviously still reasonably quiet at this moment in time in the transfer window," he added.

"I'm sure over the next couple of weeks it will pick up and hopefully we can get one or two in.

"The supporters deserve some new faces as well. Fans always look at this time of year at what new players are going to come in to the team and I'm sure they will be as excited as we are."
