Rangers made it ten summer signings on Wednesday evening, as they confirmed a loan deal for Manchester City wide man Aaron Nemane, snapping him up until January.
The Gers had already snapped up Bruno Alves, Fabio Cardoso, Ryan Jack, Carlos Pena, Graham Dorrans, Dalcio, Daniel Candeias, Eduardo Herrera and Alfredo Morelos before the start of the season, but Rangers have now dipped back into the transfer market once again.
Pedro Caixinha's men have been patchy in attack so far this season, and their latest addition could help them - though confusion still surrounds the role of new signing Aaron Nemane.
Nemane, 19, has come up through the ranks with City having moved to England from France at a young age, and he has been attempting to make a name for himself in the club's youth setup.
Rangers' new director of football Mark Allen worked with Nemane during his time as City's academy chief, and Allen has now swooped to land Nemane on loan until January - but he will be placed in the developmental squad rather than the first team.
Nemane's Manchester City contract expires at the end of the season, meaning Rangers could simply take a look at Nemane until January and then pursue a bargain pre-contract agreement with the winger, should he impress Gers staff.
This is a signing seemingly more driven by Allen than manager Caixinha, and Rangers fans so far seem underwhelmed by the club's latest addition.
Some believe that Nemane is no better than Barrie McKay after the winger was allowed to join Nottingham Forest, with others unhappy that Rangers are developing other club's youngsters rather than their own, suggesting that the club never learns from their mistakes.
Whilst Nemane has already been compared to former Gers loanee Nathan Oduwa, other fans are being a little more optimistic, believing that Nemane could earn a permanent deal at Ibrox with some promising displays, backing Allen's assessment of the winger having worked with him for many years.
Watched Nemane play for the City youth team a few times, looks decent but first team is a different ball park hope he does well. https://t.co/9r62hPHRXU— Croatia's Chosen Few (@Thesupergers) August 23, 2017
Nemane is only 19 so bringing him in for 6 months is almost a trial for the lad with a view to signing him permanently.— Willy (@SpatestonBear2) August 23, 2017
So Nemane will be primarily used for the development squads. What a waste of time and money.— Liam (@Liamwatp) August 23, 2017
I don't think it's the case people are being directly negative about Aaron Nemane, but it's hardly inspiring. The XI needs improved.— Greg Bruce (@GregBrucex) August 23, 2017
Aaron nemane is no better than Barry McKay a youth product we let go for peanuts pure media signing— Jamie Lindsay (@jlindsay88) August 23, 2017
People realise if Nemane plays well in the development squad just like Bates did when he was on loan he might get first team too.— Nathan (@Nath_RFC) August 23, 2017
Guessing the idea is Nemane comes on board so we can take a look at him. Which is fine if we aren't paying for him— John (@JG93_) August 23, 2017
Aaron Nemane is a shock player to be signing for @RangersFC looks like we won't be signing Jamie Walker then. Other areas need addressed— Kristopher Smith (@MrKSmith25) August 23, 2017
Mark Allen spent 7 years overseeing Man City's Academy. He simply wouldn't bring in Aaron Nemane on loan if he didn't rate him highly.— Paul T (@HamptonCaught) August 23, 2017
Aaron Nemane. I can't help shift the feeling it's another Nathan Oduwa. Hope to be wrong.— RT (@Rt_415) August 23, 2017
Nemane - no idea how good he is but pace in the wide areas is very welcome!— The Louden Tavern (@TheLoudenTavern) August 23, 2017
V underwhelmed at Aaron Nemane. Developing another clubs player, a boy with 0 1st team experience. Do we learn nothing— Taylor Matthews (@TM2411) August 23, 2017
Guess Rangers will try to sign Jamie Walker on a precontract in January if we're signing Nemane on loan from Man City. Suits me. Free player— David Nicolson (@DavidNic90) August 23, 2017
Nemane turns 20 next month. Give the kid a chance. He's not going to make it at City given his age so who knows... could end up permanent— David Peat (@DavidPeat1) August 22, 2017
Have to think the Nemane deal means Walker isn't coming...— Liam Watson (@LiamWatson1872) August 22, 2017
