Rangers midfielder John Lundstram is predicting a big Ibrox future for January signing Nicolas Raskin.

The Gers had to bring in new faces for Michael Beale during the January window and managed to make two important additions.

Playmaker Todd Cantwell has arrived from Norwich City and has already made a big impact in Beale’s side.

Then there was midfielder Raskin, who came in from Standard Liege before the January transfer deadline.

The Belgian ace was coming towards the end of his Standard contract and Rangers swooped in to strike a deal.

Raskin is currently out injured and is in a race against time to feature against Celtic this weekend.

Yet Rangers fans have already seen major quality and potential in Raskin and John Lundstram agrees.

Lundstram has told Rangers Review that he thinks Raskin is an absolutely ‘fantastic player’.

Lundstram added a prediction, stating that he thinks Raskin is going to become a big player for Rangers in the coming years.

“Nico is another fantastic player, a little bit different but again, another massive player for the squad and, going forward in the future, I think he’ll be big for Rangers,” said Lundstram

Nicolas Raskin is the type of signing Rangers need

It’s still early days for Raskin but the difference he makes in the Rangers midfield is clear for all to see.

This is the kind of profile Rangers need to be targeting.

The 22-year-old still has bags of potential but also had nearly 100 first-team appearances to his name before coming to Rangers.

Raskin has been able to offer an immediate impact whilst showing signs that he can become even better in the years to come.

Rangers need more players of this ilk; players who can get better and better at Ibrox and potentially rake in profit.

Ross Wilson has ben coming in for huge criticism of late but Raskin appears to be a top signing.

The Gers do need more players like this though and Wilson must find more gems like Raskin in order to alter his Ibrox reputation.
