Rangers loan signings have had a mixed impact since joining the club in the Summer.
The majority have been drafted in from down south and for the most part, have made an impact on the first team. Three out of five were drafted in from England and the other two from Europe.
But how have they fared over the piece since joining the club?
Lassana Coulibaly (7/10) (Angers)
Had I written this one month into the season, Coulibaly would’ve been looking at a high eight, maybe even a nine.
The boisterous, physical midfielder was a revelation and fans really responded to his attitude and application.
But following an injury against St. Mirren which it really looks like he’s been rushed back from, he’s more a five or six.
It looks like the big man needs a rest and it’s time to give Jack a run in the team, but his performance at the start of the season till has him at a respectable score.
Umar Sadiq (4/10) (AS Roma)
I’m giving Sadiq a four, because apart from contribute pretty much nothing to this side, he hasn’t entirely had the chance.
Granted, he did against Aberdeen and was villainised for his showing. But I think a lot of this was OTT.
Gerrard, for whatever reason, clearly doesn’t think Sadiq has what it takes to make the grade here. He’ll surely be shipped back to Rome in January.
Joe Worrall (6/10) (Nottingham Forest)
Six out of ten is about the fairest score you can give Joe Worrall. At times, the English U21 International has looked every inch the future defensive star he’s touted as. Commanding, composed and organised.
But at other times, he likes to play the blame game and lets his own concentration drop. This was perhaps most evident against Killie. Dropped for Katic last night but has got to do more and be more consistent.
There’s also an argument against playing one of Rangers loan signings over an asset the club can develop in Katic. Worrall has no intention of staying either.
Ryan Kent (8/10) (Liverpool)
Kent has really grown into his role on the pitch for Rangers in recent weeks. This has translated into some top-class performances and important goals.
He’s tricky, vibrant and gets the crowd off their seat. Out injured at present he’s a big miss on the left hand side. Will continue to grow into a big player for us and from the Rangers loan signings, is the one most fans would like to see stay at Ibrox.
Ovie Ejaria (7/10) (Liverpool)
This was a tough, but at times Ejaria is posted missing when the chips are down. He is clearly a gifted player and at times we’ve seen glimpses of what he can do. More than that, we’ve seen him really stand out in the middle.
But he is the creative player we’re looking to in order to make a difference. He’s the one who should be grabbing the game by the scruff of the neck. But he’s not doing it enough for me.
Still young and I really believe there’s the potential for a top player in there somewhere if he can find consistency. Would you take him at Ibrox beyond the Summer?
