Jonatan Johansson has completed deals for two of Rangers up-and-coming talents.
Jonatan Johansson has signed two young Rangers stars in Robby McCrorie and Andrew Dallas on loan – and Rangers fans believe it would be a good move for both players.
The Scottish Sun claimed that goalkeeper McCrorie – who is Ross’ twin – and powerful striker Dallas were both on the shopping list of Johansson, who was Graeme Murty’s assistant before taking over at Morton.
Both are on the verge of making their senior debuts at Rangers, with McCrorie playing against HJK Helsinki last weekend in a friendly, while Dallas has appeared on the bench in three league games this season.
Rangers have plenty of cover both in goal and up front. Allan McGregor and Wes Foderingham remain the club’s undisputed top two goalkeepers, while the signing of Jermain Defoe has pushed Dallas down the pecking order.
Now, Rangers have confirmed on their official website that both players have left Rangers to don the colours of Morton, just hours after Dallas signed a new contract Rangers.
Johansson has guided Morton to sixth place in the Scottish championship after 21 games, and will be keen to see them gain a place in the top half and the signings of McCrorie and Dallas would certainly help them do that.
Rangers fans reacted to the news that former striker Johansson, who played for the Gers for three years between 1997 and 2000, had signed McCrorie and Dallas – and most believe it would be a good move for the duo.
