Gedion Zelalem wants to add more goals to his game at Rangers.

Rangers midfielder Gedion Zelalem has told the club's official website that he has been disappointed with his lack of goals so far.

Zelalem, 18, joined Rangers from Arsenal last month, penning a loan deal until January as the Gunners intended to give him plenty of first team experience.

So far, Zelalem has played four games for Rangers, quickly establishing himself as a regular in Mark Warburton's midfield - but one aspect of his time at Ibrox so far has frustrated him.

Speaking to the Rangers official website, Zelalem admitted that he is 'disappointed' to have not scored his first goal for Rangers yet, and has acknowledged that he must add more goals to his game to reach the next level.

"I definitely didn’t play as well as I had against Raith Rovers and I’m disappointed not to have scored yet but that will come," said Zelalem. "I need to add goals to my game, a lot of people have said that but my first thought it always to look for the next player and to get to that next level I think I have to have goals."

"We do a lot of finishing here which is very good for me and my development and we practice free-kicks but Tav is taking all of those right now!," he added.

Zelalem is primarily a playmaking midfielder, who loves to get on the ball and pass to his team-mates as well as create chances for them in front of goal.

As a result, the United States Under-21 international doesn't always get in to goalscoring positions, hence his lack of goals for Rangers so far.

Yet, in the Scottish Championship, Zelalem should eventually find the net - and his efforts to improve that aspect of his game should begin to pay dividends sooner rather than later.
