Rangers legend hails wonderkid ahead of possible debut

Rangers legend Ally McCoist has heaped plenty of praise on new loan signing Amad Diallo as the Manchester United youngster could be set to make his debut against Ross County.

With Rangers losing Ianis Hagi to injury and Juninho Bacuna, who was sold to Birmingham, the club was lacking in the midfield and wide areas and the move for Diallo was completed swiftly.

The new signing will wear McCoist’s iconic number 9 shirt and the former Ibrox striker had plenty of positives to say about the new man.

“I’m really looking forward to seeing Diallo,” said McCoist [BTSport].

“Fingers crossed he can come up and express himself, go and play and enjoy it and he’s going to get an opportunity to play and get more game time.

“I think straight away he’s got the fans going. He’s got the fans’ juices going. The fans are talking about him and looking forward to seeing him.

“And it’s something Rangers need, I said over the last couple of weeks that the Rangers support and the team more than anything needed a little help and little injection, and hopefully Diallo will give them that.”

Amad Diallo could make his Rangers debut against Ross County

The youngster could be thrown in the deep end as the side aim for another three points in the title race as we travel up to Dingwall to face Ross County.

The attack stagnated a bit on Wednesday evening against Livingston and van Bronckhorst will be keen to avoid a repeat of that.

Although a lack of minutes is a slight worry ahead of the match, the 19-year-old will be keen to show the manager exactly why they signed him on loan.

It is a statement of intent from Rangers and hopefully, there are a few more signings to follow before Monday evening.

Meanwhile, Rangers are eyeing a replacement for an academy star who has attracted interest from Leeds Utd.
