Liverpool legend Sir Kenny Dalglish has praised Rangers winger Sheyi Ojo in The Sunday Post.

Ojo joined Rangers on a season-long loan deal from Liverpool in the summer transfer window.


Liverpool and Celtic legend Dalglish has spoken highly of the 22-year-old winger, and he believes that the English winger will be an asset for Steven Gerrard’s Rangers side next season.

Dalglish wrote in The Sunday Post: “Ojo is a good player. He is strong, quick and direct.

“I think he will be a big asset to Rangers in the coming campaign, and he gave a hint of that by scoring against St Joseph’s on Thursday night in the Europa League qualifier.”

Good signing for Rangers

Ojo is a very good and promising young winger who has pace and has tricks, and the 22-year-old is a smart signing for Rangers.

The youngster has had problems with consistency during his recent loan spells, and if he is able to add consistency to his game, then he will be an asset for Rangers next season.

Gerrard’s side are aiming to challenge bitter Old Firm rivals Celtic for the Scottish Premiership title next season, and will also hope to feature in the Europa League as well.

Rangers finished second in the Scottish Premiership table last season.
