Here, our team answer your questions from social media after Rangers were humbled by Aberdeen at Pittodrie on Sunday.

Should we sign the Aberdeen keeper? (Andy Wilson)

One of the main talking points to crop up after last weekend is the goalkeeping position and justifiably so. This season has not been one of outright mistakes for Allan McGregor, as was the case last year, but to put it mildly, it has seen a severe lack of difference-making. At his best, the veteran could decide the outcome of matches. In both boxes this season, Rangers have lacked players who can turn games like Sunday into victories.

It's no secret that Beale will be on the lookout for a stopper in the summer. At 41, McGregor is not performing at the levels he once could and refreshment is undoubtedly required in goals.

Of course, he's been a wonderful servant to the club but for some time now McGregor has been past his best levels. Even if he still possesses the ability to provide the odd big moment, the No.1 is far from the player who earned points single-handily two seasons ago.

Keep your eyes peeled for a deep dive into the goalkeeping numbers soon.

Do any of the Rangers front three deserve to be here next season? (Neil McKay)

I don't think many would argue in favour of a bumper Alfredo Morelos contract at present and while Sakala has been an effective threat away from home under Beale, it's no secret that he can prove erratic in the final third. Sunday was a prime example of that. 

For this writer, although Tillman faded in the game, he should've walked off the pitch with a couple of assists. 

It was his ability to pluck the ball out of the sky and send through Sakala that should've put Rangers 1-0 ahead...

He also provided chances for Borna Barisic and Rabbi Matondo that clipped the woodwork...

Although he has yet to pull up trees in an Old Firm, over the course of the season, for a 20-year-old in his first professional season, Tillman is certainly not the root of the problem at Rangers.

Tillman was anonymous, is he a luxury we can't afford? (Craig Hamilton)

See above for my colleague's take on Tillman's showing.

There are undeniably concerns regarding whether he can produce in big games. He was one of a number of players who weren’t at the races at Pittodrie and with the reported £5m it will cost to prize him from Bayern Munich, would it be money well spent?

What will have been lost following events at Aberdeen is the chances he created for teammates. What's more, if Nico Raskin had squared the ball to him in the first half it may well have altered the narrative.

That being said, Tillman has struggled in these powderkeg fixtures and with the Scottish Cup semi-final on the horizon, he has to deliver a performance that will give hope a big game player is developing. His numbers this season are still impressive and for someone in his first full season as a senior pro, the loanee has done enough to justify Rangers stumping up the cash required to obtain his services permanently.

What sort of position will Beale be in if Celtic give us a beating on Sunday? (Roddie McKenzie)

Since taking over from Giovanni van Bronckhorst in November, Michael Beale has overseen an upturn in form and consistency. However, he himself has said he’ll be judged on games against Celtic and the current record reads zero wins, one draw and two defeats. Failure to get the better of Ange Postecoglu at Hampden on Sunday will increase doubts he is capable of topping his opposite number.

That being said, Beale simply cannot be judged until the following campaign when he is able to shape his own squad. He is managing a group of players who are at the end of their Rangers road and the manager knows that. It remains to be seen if he can get a tune out of them at the weekend but win or lose, Beale is well aware he has a job on his hands rebuilding this beleaguered squad in the summer.

Why do we not shoot from outside the box? (Mark Webster)

Rangers did pull the trigger seven times from outside the box at Pittodrie. Their issue wasn't the quality of their opportunities, but the standard of their finishing. When Raskin was sent through on goal he failed to cut the ball back and saw his shot blocked instead. When Sakala was one-vs-one he hit the goalkeeper with room to lift the ball over Kelle Roos. Matondo and Barisic clipped the post with efforts from the left.

Taking aim more regularly from range is something Beale's highlighted in the past but at the weekend, Rangers' issue was all in the execution. 

Heading to Hampden they badly need a player capable of stepping up, to change games and narratives.

How many attacking players will Beale bring in the summer? (Brian Spence)

What was evident on Sunday was the limpness in attack and the clear need for reinforcements in the final third. Morelos’ time at the club is coming to an end, Kemar Roofe cannot be relied upon and Antonio Colak doesn’t appear to be the answer. Therefore Rangers need at least two strikers in the summer.

If we cast the net wider, Ryan Kent’s contract is also up this summer and with Fashion Sakala and Rabbi Matondo flattering to deceive, it’s important Rangers bolster in the wide areas.

Of course, players of that ilk generally cost a lot of money but you’d like to think Beale and his coaching team will already have identified the personnel required to fill those voids.

Following the 2-0 defeat to the Dons, Beale admitted they had been wasteful in front of goal. He knows his side lacks a ruthless edge and understands the ramifications of that fact. Rangers probably need at least four forwards overall, and clinical ones at that.
