Rangers boss Steven Gerrard has denied claims that his side will complete the signing of Dominic Solanke on a season-long loan.

For some time now, the promising Reds forward has been linked with a move to Scotland, as Gerrard continues to assess the areas of his squad that need strengthening.

However, the Liverpool legend was quick to quieten speculation linking Solanke with a move to Ibrox, as he told Rangers TV:

Solanke appears to have found himself low down in the pecking order at Anfield as the new season approaches, with Roberto Firmino, Daniel Sturridge and Divock Origi now available to Jurgen Klopp.

The loan window for clubs across the United Kingdom is still open, however, and the Reds could be tempted to seek a temporary move away for Solanke should the opportunity present itself.

Solanke was afforded opportunities on a sporadic basis last season but failed to truly convince in his first season at Liverpool.
