The Rangers' manager, Steven Gerrard, praises the president for the transfer of cash

Steven Gerrard thanked the Ibrox board for his "total support" in transfers this summer

Steven Gerrard thanked the Ibrox board for their "full support" before the transfer talks with President Dave King.

The manager of the Rangers has signed 11 new players this summer to renew his squad and continues with the hope of two new additions before the deadline of August 31.

While the sales of Josh Windass and Declan John could provide more room for maneuver in that regard, Gerrard insists he can not have any cause for complaint about the support received since he took office in June.

King attended Thursday's first leg of the Europa League qualifying round 3-1 over Maribor and is willing to discuss the plans with Gerrard before returning to South Africa.

"We had a quick conversation last night in the game and he has been in training camp today," said Gerrard of King. "We have had two brief conversations, but yes, I will talk extensively with him in the coming days about where we are.

"He has been a fantastic support for me and also for the board." Our relationship is really strong right now and I'm enjoying it.

"I've had total support, I could not have asked for anything more, I think it's very important, throughout the club, that we're all one, that we're all together and that we all believe in what we're trying to do.

& # 39; It's going to be a roller coaster. For the time being, it is going well and I have enough experience to know that there will also be turbulent times. If we have the support and we are all together from the board, everything will be fine.

"Changing a lot of personnel in the squad, they have been very helpful, we have made some changes in the training field, we are about to make some changes in Ibrox and they are buying what we are trying to do".

The closing of the English transfer window has revived suggestions for a loan move for Liverpool striker Dominic Solanke, a prospect Gerrard called "speculation".

Hearts forward Kyle Lafferty has already been the subject of a rejected offer of £ 200,000, with Gerrard also interested in securing another central defense option.

In terms of expenses, Rangers this week sold Windass to Wigan in a deal worth £ 2.5 million plus add-ons, while John moved to Swansea for a £ 800,000 package.

Asked if Windass money could entitle him to do more business, Gerrard smiled: "Well, I plan on asking that question in the next few days."

The Ibrox manager also revealed that the Rangers have a longer-term option within the loan agreement agreed with the French team Angers for Lassana Couilbaly. The Malian midfielder has started an impressive life in Scotland, scoring against Maribor, but Gerrard refuses to look too far.

"There is an option within it, but let's enjoy it now and throughout the year," he said. "Of course we would love to have him full time for many more years.

"We admire the player and that's the reason why we brought him, but for the moment it's a one-year loan and belongs to another club, we should appreciate that we have it in the short term.

"Realistically, he's still in the preseason in terms of fitness, sharpness and playing time, so we think there's more to come."
