Keep, sell or loan: the future of 15 Rangers fringe players assessed ahead of January transfer window

Philippe Clement will have some tinkering to do to his first-team squad in January.

Amid such a hectic run of fixtures between now and the January transfer window opening, Rangers boss Philippe Clement will know his squad is going to be tested to the max over the coming weeks.

The former AS Monaco boss has some tough calls to make with the Viaplay Cup Final, a crucial Europa League encounter away to Real Betis and the Old Firm derby showdown against Celtic on December 30th taking centre stage.

Amidst that potentially season-defining run of fixtures, there are league games against Hearts, Dundee, St Johnstone, Motherwell and Ross County to navigate this month and Clement could be tempted to present an opportunity to several players who have yet to feature or haven't played a great deal under the Belgian's regime.

The January window will be no easy assignment for Clement as he looks to make a few adjustments to his already bulky squad. While wholesale changes are out of the question, Clement has stressed he will tinker with his squad in order to give them the best possible chance of beating arch rivals Celtic to the Scottish Premiership title.

The future of SEVEN first-team players must be decided before the end of the season, but for now it's about making progress in the Europa League, clinching some long overdue silverware at Hampden on December 17th and trying to make inroads on Celtic's lead at the top of the table.
