Rangers Confirm Loan Signing Of Amad Diallo

RANGERS are today delighted to announce the loan signing of Amad Diallo from Manchester United until the end of the season.

The 19 year-old winger goes straight into the Gers squad for Saturday’s match at Ross County, and will add further to manager Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s attacking options, given his pedigree from two of Europe’s top leagues as well as continental competition.

The Ivory Coast internationalist initially joined Premier League United from Serie A Atalanta last January for a fee in excess of £30m, and has featured in the Champions League and Europa League for both clubs.

He has also been capped twice by his national team and has one goal to his name so far.

Speaking upon his arrival in Glasgow, Diallo commented: “I am delighted to join Rangers until the end of the season.

“It is fantastic for me at this stage of my career to have the opportunity to come to such a big club that is challenging on a number of fronts and will give me some excellent opportunities to test myself in many environments.

“I look forward to training with my teammates for the first-time tomorrow and to meeting the fans for the first time at Ross County on Saturday.”

Manager, Giovanni van Bronckhorst, continued: “I am really pleased to add Amad to our squad for the rest of the season.

“He is a player who I have been aware of for some time, and when the opportunity to sign him came up, we very keen to make it happen.

“He will add a lot to our squad and provide even more competition for the players in the forward areas.”

Sporting Director, Ross Wilson, added: “This is a really exciting signing for us as Amad was highly sought after by a number of clubs.

"We have been working hard with Manchester United and Amad’s agents throughout January to reach an agreement for Amad to become a Rangers player.

“We have stayed patient in our discussions as we know what Amad can bring to our group. Amad and Manchester United had an array of options this window across the Premier League and in Europe, so needless to say, I’m absolutely delighted that we have been able to convince both Manchester United and Amad that Rangers is the perfect place for him to continue to showcase his undoubted and exciting talent.”
