Rangers loanee Malik Tillman has been hailed by Bayern Munich teammate and former Celtic talent Liam Morrison.

The Gers pounced to sign Tillman on loan last summer, with the option of turning the move permanent.

That option is believed to be worth worth around €7million (£6million), which isn’t just loose change to Rangers.

Michael Beale and co will soon have to weigh up whether to activate that deal.

There is a real chance that paying up for Tillman will eat into the Rangers budget, but the Gers could also rake in profit on him down the line.

This is a tough call on the American, who has actually divided opinion with some fans.

The 20-year-old has excelled when he has turned on the style, bagging 10 goals and five assists in all competitions.

Some still want more from Tillman and believe he must contribute more consistently going forward.

Malik Tillman hailed by Liam Morrison

Tillman has now received praise from somebody who knows the Glasgow football scene pretty well.

Bayern Munich defender Liam Morrison – formerly of rivals Celtic – played with Tillman in Germany.

The Scottish centre back has now offered his view on the Rangers star whilst speaking to the Daily Record.

Morrison has suggested that Tillman is a ‘great player’ and he could instantly see his quality at Bayern.

Morrison was even telling his dad about Tillman, branding him a ‘hell of a player’.

The former Celtic man added that he told Tillman what a huge club he was joining in Rangers and is delighted to see him show his quality.

“I played with him for maybe half a season with the second team. He’s a great player and he’s shown that at Rangers. He was a great player to play alongside. I could see there was something about him 100 per cent. Ever since I first played with him I remember speaking to my dad and saying he was a hell of a player.”

“When I first moved to Bayern I was in his team for pre-season and you just see he had something about him. And he’s showing his qualities now. I heard rumours about him going to Rangers but I didn’t know if it would happen. I wished all the best and told him he was going to a big club and he would enjoy it,” he added.

Tillman should be the kind of player Rangers build around for years to come but that decision will be made in the coming weeks and months as the Gers weigh up their summer budget.
