Defeat for Rangers against Kilmarnock yesterday meant that Steven Gerrard’s men finished the 2018/19 campaign nine points adrift of bitter rivals Celtic.
The Hoops secured a 2-1 win over Hearts at Parkhead to make their title win all the more emphatic over the Gers.
A big summer lies in store for Gerrard and he must ensure that his squad is stronger than this season if he is to finally end Celtic’s dominance.
Yesterday’s title win is the eight in succession for the Hoops and they are edging ever close to 10 on the trot. The aim for Gerrard is to stop that from happening.
One area that Rangers will perhaps look for reinforcements is at the back. Gareth McAuley is set to leave at the end of his one-year deal, whilst Joe Worrall will return to Nottingham Forest.
One man who could represent a decent addition to the Rangers ranks is Chelsea youngster Fikayo Tomori. The 21-year-old has been on loan with Derby County this season, helping the Rams to the Play-Off final.
His future when he returns to Stamford Bridge could come into question, however. If Derby win promotion they will almost certainly fancy extending his stay at Pride Park, but other suitors could emerge.
Rangers could be the ideal platform for Tomori to continue learning his trade. European football would do wonders for his development and Gerrard could land a real advantage on rivals Celtic by signing the youngster.
Tomori is strong in the tackle, reads the game extremely well and is getting better with each passing game. Having played 44 Championship games for Derby, the Chelsea loanee would surely relish the chance to continue getting games under his belt.
