Amad Diallo has joined the Scottish Premiership leaders Rangers on loan until the
end of the season.
Manchester United signed Amad Diallo from Atalanta for £37.2m; the winger has
made nine appearances for the Premier League side and scored one goal,
The 19-year-old has not yet been able to establish himself as a regular in the Red
Devils first team, though, and the decision has now been taken for him to continue
his development at Ibrox for the next six months.
Diallo could make his debut at Ross County, live on Sky Sports, and said: “I am
delighted to join Rangers until the end of the season.
“It is fantastic for me at this stage of my career to have the opportunity to come to
such a big club that is challenging on a number of fronts and will give me some
excellent opportunities to test me in many environments.
“I look forward to training with my teammates for the first time tomorrow and to
meeting the fans for the first time at Ross County on Saturday.”
Manager, Giovanni van Bronckhorst, added: “I am really pleased to add Amad to our
squad for the rest of the season.
“He is a player who I have been aware of for some time, and when the opportunity to
sign him came up, we were very keen to make it happen.
“He will add a lot to our squad and provide even more competition for the players in
the forward areas.”
Diallo’s arrival follows the news winger Ianis Hagi will miss the rest of the season
after undergoing knee surgery in London.
