Steven Gerrard admits it would be naive to think Rangers’ Champions League failure will have no impact on their transfer business.
Rangers dropped into the Europa League play-offs after a home defeat by the 10-man Swedish outfit on Tuesday, missing out on around £30million as a result.
The loss could mean star players Alfredo Morelos and Glen Kamara are sold to balance their finances.
Rangers announced in November last year that they would need about £23m in external investment before the end of this season, and have not paid any transfer fees this summer despite launching a £6.75m share issue.
When asked if anyone might have to be sold or would look to leave, Gerrard said: “Not on the back of the last two results in terms of Europe, but at the same time I’m well aware of how this club works and how it runs. We are a club that, if the right numbers land for our players, we do have to recycle. I’m well aware of that.
“But nothing has been said to me since the game in terms of being in a rush to do that. Nothing has changed in terms of me wanting to keep my best players here to give us the best chance of being successful.”
But he added: “I’m not naive enough to sit here and think that the last two results won’t have an impact somewhere down the line.”
