okay so i'm with rangers in the scottish premier league, in the first season i won the league on the final day againts Celtic despite starting on -10 points and having no money in the transfer kitty or the wage budget, but got knocked out of the national cups pretty early on and didnt make it out of the group stages of the champions league. my signings were Guti on a free at the very beginning (but he doesnt really count because he was rubbish and i didnt extend his contract and let him go on a free at the end of the season), Yaya Sanogo (thanks to recommendations from this site) who i managed to get to sign a contract in january so he'd be free in July, Ignacio Camacho for 700k from Malaga and Erik Huseklepp from Portsmouth for 1.5m, both in january.

My Normal formation is a 4-2-3-1 with my more Defensive formation being a 5-3-2

Gk - Allan Mcgregor
Rwb - Steven Whittaker
Rcb - Dorin Goin
Lcb - Carlos Bocanegra
Lwb - Darren Wallace
Dmcr - Ignacio Camacho
Dmcl - Maurice Edu
Amr - Erik Huseklepp
Amc - Steven Davis
Aml - Gregg Wylde (i know Aluko has better stats but Wylde was been kicking ass down the left)
St - Steven Naismith

So the second season comes and i offload 5 or 6 people who weren't any use to me (mostly free due to end of contracts) and bring in Danny Wilson on loan from Liverpool (who buy the way i would love to sign on a permenant basis), Joshua King from Man Utd on a free (only signed because utd offered him for free and i thought he could act as cover for Naismith and Sanogo) and Christian Derflinger on a free (i was going through a injury crisis with my wingers at the time so i needed someone fast, and he came up half decent). So began the new season, we started pretty slow but after 7 or 8 games got going and now after 28 games hold a 14 point advantage over 2nd place Celtic with a +50 goal advantage to their +13. We're still in both national cups as well, in the final of one and the 6th round of the other. To my delight we won the group stage of the Champions league with 5 wins and a defeat ( our group comprised of Standard, Sevilla and Man Utd) and are know facing FC Bayern in the 1st round knockout stages having already played the first leg away and getting a nil-nil draw. the January transfer window closed a couple of months ago i didnt buy anyone to threaten the first teamers but i have got a few young stars for the future starting with Joel Valancia from Zaragozia for 1.5m, Alain Huet on loan Havre AC (i'm going to look into signing him up when the loan finishes) and Alexis Sainrimat for 1.2m form PSG (who i've immediately sent to my feeder club)

I guess the whole point of my story is see if you guys can spot any weak spots in my squad and to ask who would you put in to plug those holes ready for the next season. What i really want to do over the next couple of seasons though is to make Rangers the dominant force in Europe, any help will be appreciated.
