Rangers manager Ally McCoist says he still hopes to add more players to his squad after seeing off Falkirk 1-0 in the Ramsdens Cup.
After completing the signing of French defender Sebastien Faure, subject to international clearance the Ibrox boss saw two players head for the exit door.
Romanian defender Dorin Goian has signed a season-long loan with Italian Serie B side Spezia Calcio with Ipswich Town and Stoke City battling over midfielder Maurice Edu.
Andy Little’s goal gave McCoist’s side victory in Falkirk and afterwards the 49-year-old spoke of his transfer hopes.
He said: "It will be a relief when I get a few in.
"I think it was inevitable that we would lose some players.
"My biggest concern is when we don't replace them.
"I keep going on about the numbers and we've lost in the region of 25 and we've brought in nothing like that, we've brought in a very minimal amount.
"We were down to the bare bones tonight when you looked at the bench. We definitely need to strengthen, of that there is no doubt."
Faure signed a three-year deal with the Glasgow club and McCoist feels he will develop during his time in Scotland.
He added: "Sebastien is a 20-year-old lad and he will be good for us.
"He's another one for the future although I hope he goes into the team and plays.
"He is young, aggressive enough and has a good attitude to play. I think he will do well.
"His future is in front of him and hopefully that will be at Ibrox."
