£19m Premier League star sparks Rangers rumours with social media post

Rangers fans reckon there’s a chance Man United winger Amad Diallo could be set to return to Ibrox after his latest message on social media.

The 19-year-old Ivory Coast international spent the second half of last season on loan at Rangers and despite departing the club, Amad uploaded a picture of himself in a Rangers shirt to Instagram.

Now of course this could mean absolutely nothing more than a throwback to his time with the Rangers team – something Amad had begun to embrace by his loan’s end – but some fans are musing over the possibility of a potential return.

Signed by Man United from Atalanta in January 2021 on an initial £19m deal – which could potential rise to around £38m [BBC Sport] – a lot is expected of the youngster who is undoubtedly talented but admittedly raw.

Rangers fans had begun to see flashes of Amad’s ability towards the end of his loan stint and there was a feeling before his return to Man United that another season in Light Blue would’ve been a productive move for all parties.

But given the inconsistency of his performances Amad would surely be seen as a rotation option for Rangers with the club tasked with finally filling the right-wing void this summer.

Ex-Rangers star Amad denies Ivory Coast snub

Speaking of ex-Rangers winger Amad, the winger has also been in the press railing against the suggestion that he flaked on an Ivory Coast call-up during the break.

One of the country’s brightest young talents, the winger furiously denied the suggestion on social media.

“Absolutely false, this information,” said Amad.

“I have never declined the call of our national team and I even intend to pursue those who circulate this information to tarnish my reputation in the eyes of Ivorians.

“I love my country and I will always be available when the country calls me. Why [do they] want, at all costs, to smear my image just to have likes on the networks?

“I strongly condemn this false information about me and I I will pursue all those who are the basis of this publication.”

In total Amad Diallo played 13 games for Rangers, scoring three goals.

Meanwhile, could Rangers look to the Netherlands and a genuine alternative to Colombian striker Mateo Cassierra?
