Sean Goss has revealed to Rangers TV that new team-mate Jordan Thompson helped convince him to join the Ibrox club.

The 22-year-old has joined Rangers on a six-month temporary deal from QPR.

The former Manchester United man, who shared a room with Thompson during their time at the Red Devils, joined the London side on a six-year contract only 12 months ago.

But the youngster has managed only six first-team appearances with the capital club down South.

Nevertheless, Goss reveals he is delighted to join Rangers and claims that a "massive fan" in Thompson helped sell life at Ibrox to him.

“I’ve watched quite a few of the games, and I was woken up every morning by a massive Rangers fan in Jordan Thompson," he said to Rangers TV.

“I have spoken to him quite a bit and he couldn’t say enough about the club.”

Goss is a defensive midfielder and he will travel to Florida with his new team on Friday for friendlies with Atletico Mineiro and Corinthians.

Thompson joined the Gers under Mark Warburton but the 21-year-old has managed just two Premiership appearances since 2015.
