But I think his squad is strong enough to win the league and challenge in the cup compeititions Rangers are involved in if he has to go with what he has got.
We saw in the friendly against Newcastle United earlier this month, when most of the new boys played, how strong they can be.
The SPFL League One game against East Fife at Ibrox tomorrow is the last occasion he will only be able to field two trialists.
Ally has made some excellent signings and should be able to see out the 2013/14 campaign with what he has.
I know he has once again expressed interest in signing Kenny Miller. But I do not see the need to bring him back myself.
Nicky Clark, Jon Daly, Andy Little and Lee McCulloch can all play in attack. He has plenty of firepower up front.
If Kenny, who has signed an extenstion to his deal at Vancouver Whitecaps, is keen then it is something that could be explored in the future.
Having another quality striker like that would certainly help next season when the Ibrox club bid to return to the top flight.
The former Scotland internationalist is still as fit as a fiddle and would score goals. But I don't think he is needed just now.
Perhaps this is something the club could revisit further down the line.
Ally is keen to send Scott Gallacher out on loan this season to give him further first-team experience and I can see the logic in that.
But I feel sorry for him because he has been excellent in the first team matches he has been involved in this season.
He made a save against Airdrie last Friday night, when the game was level, that was magnificent.
Scott has proved he is a good goalkeeper. If Cammy Bell was to pick up an injury he would be a more than edequate stand-in.
