GARY McALLISTER has refused to rule out Rangers making further signings after Andy King became boss Steven Gerrard’s TENTH recruit this summer.

The Leicester City midfielder has agreed a season-long loan deal to join  the Ibrox revolution.

The club look to have strength in depth after a hectic period in the market place, but No.2 McAllister insists there will always be room for a quality acquisition before the deadline on Monday, September 2.

The former Scotland international captain, speaking to Sky Sports News, admitted: “If somebody becomes available who can come and make a difference here then yes, that’s still available to us.

“If you look at the squad, we have plenty of cover. Unless someone really jumps out at us, I think the manager is quite pleased with the way the squad is.

“But that doesn’t mean to say if someone becomes available, we are not interested. Management teams and managers are always looking to strengthen.

KING POWER…new Gers recruit Andy King.

“When a board of directors ask you ‘what do you need?’, you always need. You always need better players.”

McAllister added: “The addition of Andy King is big for us.

“He brings more competition to a very strong part of our team, but there’s loads of games.

“Thursday to Sunday, we are semi-used to it, we know the demands of travelling and then coming back to go again on the Sunday.”

Rangers play East Fife at Methil tomorrow afternoon for the right to reach the Betfred League Cup quarter-final and then they switch their attention to Polish side Legia Warsaw in the Europa League first leg play-off on Thursday after their 7-3 aggregate triumph over Denmark’s Midtjylland.
