Speaking to the Evening Times, Gedion Zelalem has admitted he will tell his Arsenal teammates that moving to Rangers on loan is a great idea for any young players.
Zelalem said: “I’d definitely recommend coming to Rangers to other young players at Arsenal because they’ll learn what it’s like playing for a big club. I will tell the boys a lot about Rangers when I go back and would encourage anyone wanting to go on loan to come here. I’d tell them to go straight for it if Mark Warburton wanted them.”
This is a positive reaction to his loan deal from Zelalem, and could benefit Rangers in the future if the USA midfielder puts in a good word at the Emirates.
He will tell his young teammates that moving to Ibrox is perfect to continue developing, and this could aid the Gers in signing more Arsenal youngsters on loan in the future.
Zelalem has been one of the loan successes at Ibrox this term, registering eight assists in 17 appearances for the Gers, and his development has pleased the Arsenal coaching staff.
They have extended his loan at Ibrox until the end of the season, after it originally expired this month, and Mark Warburton’s coaching of the youngster has proven a big hit.
Warburton is renowned for his work with youth players, and all the signs point towards more Arsenal players heading to Rangers in the coming years.
