Rangers have resurrected 70s rock song Magic by Pilot in homage to Bayern Munich loanee Malik Tillman as the conversation continues surrounding the player’s future.
Gers fans were clipped singing the new chant during the club’s 3-0 win over Hearts where the USA international midfielder scored either side of an Alfredo Morelos double.
The goal was Malik Tillman’s seventh in a Rangers shirt and the travelling Ibrox support left the attacking midfielder in no doubt regarding their thoughts on his future.
Signed on a season long loan with option-to-buy in the summer, Rangers fans are eager to see the 20-year-old join the club full-time and the catchy chant will certainly show the German-born star just that.
The Malik Tillman song is sang to the tune of Magic by 70s band Pilot by Rangers fans and goes:
“Ohhh it’s Malik, you know,
“Give him the ball and he’ll score”
Rangers fans dedicate Malik Tillman song amid future debate
Rangers fans have dedicated this new song to Malik Tillman as much debate rages surrounding the Bayern Munich player’s future.
Speaking after the victory over Hearts, Rangers boss Michael Beale appeared to suggest the ball is in the Bundesliga club’s court with everyone at Ibrox eager to retain the player.
This comes with both club’s agreeing an option to-buy in the summer, which also reportedly includes a Bayern Munich buy-back clause.
“Yeah, of course, we can [agree as deal for Malik Tillman],” said Michael Beale [Rangers].
“There’s a fee agreed. Everything is in place. You get the season out of the way then you sit down and talk to everybody and try and get it done.
“If it was on my decision and Rangers’ decision we would have him here for the long term. He’s a player that we like and a boy that’s settled in really well at our club. At 20 years old he’s got a really exciting future.
“[It’s] not so much [up to Malik]. I think it’s up to the two clubs.”
Meanwhile, the arrival of Nicolas Raskin appears to have lit a fire under some in the Rangers squad.
