Rangers manager Ally McCoist has revealed bolstering his defence is one of his top summer priorities.
McCoist saw his troops Gers lose 3-0 to Bundesliga outfit Bochum on Saturday, a game that Madjid Bougherra was omitted.
The Light Blues tactician did not want to risk the Algerian in the contest so that he will be fit for the new SPL campaign.
Bougherra has been linked with a move away from Ibrox, although no bids have so far been tabled for the stopper.
McCoist still wants to add new faces to the squad before the window closes and say strengthening his backline is an issue.
"He was feeling his hamstring a little bit at training this morning so we decided not to risk him," he explained.
"The important thing is to have Madjid fit and ready for when we start our league campaign.
"We have not had an offer for him. He is a Rangers player and the one thing about Madjid is that he gives his all in every game, and I have no doubts that he will do that again.
"We are looking to strengthen a few areas and the defence is one of them.
"We definitely need to get one or two fresh faces in to help the lads and we will do that."
