Gerrard didn’t want to comment on Sakala while speaking to the media prior to this weekend’s Old Firm clash.
But the Liverpool legend admitted Rangers had targeted a number of players in their bid to beef up the squad for a Scottish Premiership title defence and a crack at the Champions League next season.
The Ibrox manager was also asked about SC Heerenveen midfielder Joey Veerman.
He responded: “There were couple of names a week before and a week before that. If there’s anything to say in terms of ins and outs, I will be the first to tell you.
“We are tracking certain individuals to try and make the group stronger when the window opens. I don’t think it’s the right time to mention individual names or targets that we’re looking at.”
Earlier this week Sakala followed a number of Steven Gerrard’s top team on Instagram.
The 24-year-old has connected with Borna Barisic, Allan McGregor, Joe Aribo, Kemar Roofe, James Tavernier, Glen Kamara and Bongani Zungu on Instagram.
