Arsenal-owned midfielder Gedion Zelalem has taken to Instagram to send a farewell message to Rangers.

Zelalem is returning to his parent club Arsenal after spending the 2015-16 campaign on loan at Scottish giants Rangers.

The 19-year-old midfielder has thanked everyone at the Glasgow club, and is delighted to have played his part in the Gers’ return to the Scottish top flight.

Rangers won the Scottish Championship title this past season with ease and will feature in the Scottish Premiership during the 2016-17 campaign.

The Gers, though, failed to win against Hibernian in the final of the Scottish Cup, and Zelalem is disappointed for that.

Meanwhile, Mekhi McLeod has sent a ‘thank you’ message to everyone at Rangers on Twitter, as he prepares to leave Ibrox.

The former Wolverhampton Wanderers youngster, who can play as a winger or as an attacking midfielder, joined the Gers in January after impressing on trial.

The youngster was part of the Rangers youth team during the second half of the 2015-16 campaign, and he has been released by the Glasgow giants.
