Ryan Hardie sheds light on John Eustace situation at Rangers

Rangers FC Stands

The 35-year old joined on trial in July, but is yet to sign a permanent deal.

Rangers starlet Ryan Hardie has shed light on the involvement of John Eustace at the club, in a Twitter Q&A session earlier today.

Eustace arrived on trial in July with a view to signing on a permanent basis, but no deal has been agreed as yet.

Mark Warburton spoke of his desire to secure a deal for the former Derby County man earlier this month – in quotes published by the Daily Record – but there have seemingly been no developments.

Hardie was asked about Eustace’s involvement by a fan, to which he replied:

The knowledge the 35-year old imparts on the squad has been recognised by both Mark Warburton and Andy Halliday, with the latter expressing his desire to see Eustace join on a permanent deal, in an interview with the Express.

Experience is the major component lacking in this new-look Rangers side and Eustace’s involvement, in some capacity, would be beneficial.

The hold up in securing his signature suggests he is struggling to prove his fitness, after suffering a knee injury in January which curtailed his season and led to the Rams releasing him, and doesn't bode well for his playing prospects.
