Rangers loanee Gedion Zelalem promises he'll always keep in touch with Ibrox club, after he returns to Arsenal

Gedion Zelalem for Rangers this season, after being handed an important role by Mark Warburton at Ibrox.

Gedion Zelalem has told the Glasgow Evening Times that he will always look out for Rangers’ results in future seasons.

Zelalem joined Rangers on loan from Arsenal at the start of the campaign, and his time at Ibrox seems to be coming to an end now.

Zelalem is set to return to Arsenal in the coming weeks, but he says that he will always been interested in seeing how Rangers get on in the future.

“The whole point of a loan deal is to get experience, and I’ll go back to Arsenal and strive to get involved there," he said. 

“The contact has been good, and they get a lot of feedback and scouts have been coming to watch the games.

“When I go back though, I will always keep in touch with Rangers and see how they are doing.”

Rangers’ next season is set to be spent in the Scottish Premiership, with Mark Warburton’s side dominating the Scottish tier this time around.

Zelalem has already been part of a side who have won two pieces of silverware, and he may be able to add a third medal to his growing trophy cabinet before his loan spell expires.

The Light Blues are due to face Hibernian in the final of the Scottish Cup at the end of the month.

Zelalem should return to Arsenal an improved player, as he has been played competitive football regularly for the first time in his career this season.

The central midfielder has made 27 appearances for Rangers this season in all competitions.
