STEVEN GERRARD is bracing himself for English interest in his Rangers stars on the final day of the transfer window south of the border.

Rangers last night rejected a bid for captain James Tavernier as West Bromwich Albion made an attempt to land the right-back.

The Baggies will have to significantly increase their offer if they are to conclude a deal for the 26-year-old before the close of business this evening.

Midfielder Greg Docherty has clinched a season long loan switch to Shrewsbury Town, while Jak Alnwick may also be on the move after being linked with Championship side Bristol City. 

And Josh Windass, who has repeatedly been touted for a return to England, could be heading for an Ibrox exit after attracting interest from Ipswich, Wigan and Rotherham. 

Rangers host Maribor in the Europa League tonight but Gerrard may have to fend off interest in his players before kick-off against the Slovenians.

Gerrard said: “We’re at a club where every player does have a price so that might affect us in the next 24 hours but we’ll have to deal and face that if and when it happens.

“At the moment I’m looking at my phone and hoping Mark Allen doesn’t phone me in the coming hours. We just need to focus on the game and prepare the team the best way we can for another difficult test.

“But I can’t sit here and say we won’t be affected in the next 24 hours. We might be. We’ll have to wait and see.”

Gerrard made his 11th signing of the summer on Tuesday as Croatian international Borna Barisic completed a switch from Osijek.

And the Ibrox boss is pleased with the ins and outs over the course of a busy window for Rangers.

Gerrard said: “I’m really, really happy. Our business has been good. If we don’t make another signing then I’m happy with the squad we’ve got.

“Unless something major happens in the next 24 hours with someone making a bid for one of our players that we can’t resist then I’d be satisfied.

“If we can make another addition then great - a manager always wants that little bit more.

“We’re trying our best [for a centre-back] and we have been for quite a while. It’s important we get the right one and not just someone because he can play in a position. He has to be good enough for Rangers and financially it has to make sense.”
