King: 'Gerrard will have money to spend'

Rangers chairman Dave King says that new manager Steven Gerrard will be given money to spend after penning a four-year contract at Ibrox.

Rangers chairman Dave King has suggested that he expects Steven Gerrard to sign "five or six" players during the summer transfer window.

On Friday, Gerrard was confirmed as the replacement for Graeme Murty, with the Liverpool legend penning a four-year deal to take charge of the Glasgow giants.

Gerrard has already been linked with a swoop for former teammate Martin Skrtel, and King has confirmed that the club's new boss will have funds available ahead of next season.

King told the club's official website: "I think our view in our discussions with him is the same as it has been. We will continue to invest in the squad as we have done for the last couple of seasons and I think Steven understands and expects that that will continue with him as manager.

"Certainly I think that there have been improvements, albeit recent results haven't been the best, but I think the squad is a lot stronger than it was before the January transfer window and I would still think we probably need another five or six players to come in.

"It's really going to be up to Steven and Mark [Allen] to get together after today and work that out for themselves and then come back with recommendations."

Gerrard will not officially take over as manager until June 1.
