It was a bad Tuesday night for Liverpool as they fell 2-0 to Red Star Belgrade in the Champions League game.

The defeat would no doubt have some effect on the Reds team with some players already seen as unfit for the club as the management will ensure a cleanup incoming transfer windows so as to accommodate new players.

Liverpool legend and Rangers head coach Steven Gerrard is one of those who is looking at that direction and he is already making moves to test their chances of having striker Dominic Solanke.

Rangers had made an attempt to sign the forward in the last summer but the move was blocked by the Anfield side as they decided to have him remain s a backup to the trio, Mohammed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino.

Despite his stay at the club, Solanke has not seen enough playing time in addition to not being named for a bench role against Red Star Belgrade despite travelling with the team.

Rangers are not happy with the performance of Nigerian international Umar Sadiq and have turned their attention to the Liverpool man to equip the team for the remaining part of the season.

Gerrard is expected to make a case for the player by fronting Sonlanke’s development as a reason to convince Liverpool.
