Rangers assistant David Weir hints at more loan signings

Rangers are a good option for a number of top youngsters.

Rangers assistant boss David Weir believes the Ibrox side are a good fit for young players to learn their trade and hints at more loan signings on the horizon, the Mirror reports.

He said: “I think Rangers has got great things to give to these loan players in respect of the crowds, the expectations and the environment that hopefully we are creating here that replicates what they want to do with their careers at their parent clubs.”

Rangers have already made three loan signings this season as Gedion Zelalem arrived from Arsenal while Tottenham Hotspur duo Dominic Ball and Nathan Oduwa almost made the move across the border.

The latter has now returned to his parent club, yet not before thanking Rangers for the wonderful experience and highlighting how moving to the club has made a positive impact on his development.

Gers, under the guidance of popular boss Mark Warburton, are an extremely attractive proposition for young players wanting to progress in a big-club environment.

Despite being in the second-tier, Rangers still have the attendances to match most Premier League sides while the facilities at the club trump most league sides in England.

But the club’s biggest pulling power at present is arguably their boss Warburton, with the former Brentford manager renowned for working with youngsters and playing a particular style of football.

The likes of Liverpool, Arsenal and Tottenham should be imploring their youngsters to head up north and the experience which comes with it could stand them in great shape for the future.
