Rangers new boy Jordan Thompson describes his style of play

The former Manchester United midfielder has signed a two-year deal at Ibrox after impressing on trial, and rapidly risen to the first team squad.

Rangers completed another signing this week when they snapped up midfielder Jordan Thompson after his Manchester United contract expired, and the 18-year-old has revealed to the club website just how quickly he has made an impact at the club.

The youngster, who hails from Northern Ireland, had been on trial at Ibrox for the last few weeks, and did enough in training as well as the club's pre-season match with Spurs, which took place behind closed doors, for Mark Warburton to make him his fourth signing of the summer.

It is was a quick ascent for the player from trialist training with the Under-21s to the first team squad and a subsequent contract, enough for the player to feel the need to enlighten Gers fans on his style of play.

“I’m very creative within the middle of the park," the youngster said on the Rangers site. "I can tackle and make a good pass, and hopefully I can show fans that over the next few seasons."

Thompson also said that though there were other clubs interested in him, the childhood Gers fans didn't have much of a decision to make once he heard of the Scottish giants' interest.

“There were a few other clubs that I was on trial at, but when I came to Rangers I really enjoyed it," he added.

“Craig [Mulholland] said to me that he had heard about me and had heard good things, and I did well in Ian Durrant’s team when I first arrived so I was then shown round to the first team wing and hopefully I can stay there.

“It was brilliant to travel down to London with the first team [to play Spurs], and I got the last half-hour and did quite well with them."
