£5m-rated former Rangers player secures seventh loan in six years as bizarre trend continues

Former Rangers winger Sheyi Ojo has made his seventh loan move in six years after Liverpool failed to sell him in the summer window.

Ojo spent the 2019/20 season at Ibrox, making 36 appearances, scoring five goals and notching seven assists.

It was a mixed loan spell, with the former England youth international shining on occasion but eventually dropping down the pecking order and out of Steven Gerrards’s plans.


In theory, his stint in Glasgow was aiding his development and building up his senior experience so that he was better equipped to contribute to the Liverpool first-team.

However, it wasn’t his first loan move and certainly hasn’t turned out to be his last.

Prior to joining the Gers, he’d had temporary stints at Wigan Athletic, Wolves, Fulham and Reims, while he spent last season at Cardiff City.

Ojo produced the same number of goals and assists at the Cardiff City Stadium as he did at Ibrox and although that wasn’t enough to break into Jurgen Klopp’s plans, Liverpool hoped his performances would attract a buyer.

His price tag was reportedly set at £5m [Goal.com] but although the Reds held on until late in the window, they couldn’t negotiate a permanent exit.

Instead, Ojo remains on the books despite only making 13 senior Liverpool appearances in six years and has embarked upon a seventh career loan to Championship club Millwall.

The Lions announced the season-long agreement at 10:50pm on deadline day.

Since Ojo’s mixed stint at Ibrox, Rangers have made sparing use of the loan market, only bringing in Bongani Zungu for the 2020/21 campaign, while there are currently no loan players in the first-team squad.
