Three Rangers players could be on their way out of the club in the January window with several players reportedly growing frustrated at their lack of first team action this season. Matt Gilks, Michael O’Halloran and Matt Crooks are all said to be considering a move away, although in the case of Crooks it would likely only be a temporary deal, after struggling to make the breakthrough into Mark Warburton’s starting XI.

Gilks joined the club last summer from Burnley but has made a handful of appearances as Wes Foderingham has put in a number of impressive displays. Gilks did play in most of the Betfred Cup games so far however at 34-years-old the clock is quickly ticking on the end of his playing career.

O’Halloran has failed to make any real impact since joining from St. Johnstone 12 months ago and it has been reported that Saints boss Tommy Wright would like to bring the pacy frontman back to McDiarmid Park. Warburton may look to just cut his losses on O’Halloran although with Joe Garner facing three months on the sidelines it could mean another chance for O’Halloran.

Despite being publicly denied by Mark Warburton it’s believed Crooks is looking for first team football and both parties may look at a short-term move to let Crooks try regain the form that won him a move to Ibrox in the first place. With the transfer window barely open a week there’s already been a host of midfielders linked with a move to Ibrox so a move away might be what Crooks needs to salvage his Rangers career.
