Liverpool fans are delighted with the contract extension of prospect Ovie Ejaria and the deal that sees him move to Rangers with Steven Gerrard.
— Liverpool FC (@LFC) June 7, 2018
The Reds confirmed he had signed a new long-term contract at Anfield, but will move for the 2018/19 season to Ibrox, helping usher in a new era at the Light Blues under the guidance of Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard.
The England U21 international has made just eight career appearances for Liverpool and most recently spent a half season on loan at relegated Championship club Sunderland.
A central attacking midfielder, fans are hoping the 20-year-old can learn a lot from Gerrard and return to the Reds better prepared for first team football, with many believing he has an excellent future.
The Scottish Premiership is a physical and quick league, with the pressure of winning week-to-week in front of a 50,000 crowd likely to aid his development too.
Fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts on it all…

I for one am glad that we've tied Ovie Ejaria down to a new long-term deal before letting him leave on loan to Rangers.
Definitely a good prospect. #LFC
