IT is always important to add quality to your squad when you can and that is what Mark will be hoping to do during the January transfer window.

There is no point bringing in someone that doesn’t offer you anything different and there is no doubt that Rangers need another option in the middle of the park.

Jota is one of a number of players that Mark has been linked with and is someone that he knows well from his time at Brentford.

I have never seen him play but I have read a lot about him and his former team-mates have spoken very highly of him in terms of his ability and what he could bring to the side.

We have heard it before when potential targets have been talked up and then they get here and they can’t handle being a Rangers player.

But Rangers do need someone in midfield with a bit of guile, someone that has got an eye for a pass and that can create chances and get a few goals themselves.

If Mark feels that Jota is that player and he can get a deal done to bring him to the club then great. If it is not him, then we will see who does come in.

Every signing that you make is a gamble. Mark knows Jota as a person as well as a player and if decides to make a move then he will have to confident that he will fit in on and off the park.

With Joey Barton gone and Niko Kranjcar out for the season, Rangers do need reinforcements in the central area.

A number of players have been linked in the last few weeks but there will only be one or two brought in during the window.

Whoever comes in, they have to hit the ground running right away. Hopefully Mark gets the deals done that he wants and the squad will be stronger in a couple of weeks.
