Rangers boss Steven Gerrard is keen for more fire power to help a title challenge with Celtic.

Gerrard has been a big backer of Alfredo Morelos, who leads the Scottish Premiership scoring charts with nine goals.

But his red card on Wednesday night against Aberdeen has put him in the dog house.

And Rangers are now prioritising a forward to compete with Morelos and Kyle Lafferty next month.

Rangers are also keen on a number 10 style player and have been linked with Steven Davis.

But the 33-year-old was made Southampton captain this week against Tottenham and could see more action under new boss Ralph Hasenhuttl.

Rangers are also keeping tabs on Millwall defender Jake Cooper, but may have to wait until the summer for him.

Solanke however is on the immediate list and, after struggling to break into the Liverpool side, is likely to be on the move next month.

But Rangers face competition from Premier League sides Wolves and Huddersfield for the former Chelsea ace.

Solanke, 21, won his first England cap against Brazil in November 2017, but he hasn’t played a single minute for Liverpool this season.

Former Rangers captain Terry Butcher thinks Gerrard needs ’several’ signings before he can think about challenging Celtic.

“I still think they need several players to come in,” Butcher told Express Sport.

“I think goals will win you games and if you get goalscorers in the team that can take chances, or a chance, then that’s what you need against the likes of Celtic, Aberdeen and Hearts - players that can convert the smallest of chances.

“So possibly a number 10 would be good, another striker for competition for places would be good.

“You look at younger players on loan, look at the England players there’s some really good players that need to get playing, but clubs won’t let players go unless they’re going to come to Rangers and play.

“They don’t want them sitting on the bench for five minutes they want them getting experience and playing so there is that to look at and traditionally in January there not a lot of real talent there so they’re probably going to have work with what they’ve got until they can get someone like a Solanke that’s going to be hungry.

“Hungry youngsters will do very well I think and will fit into the pattern of the team and the way they want to play and particularly when you’re playing with a club like Rangers.”
