Rangers fans excited about new striker Umar Sadiq

Rangers have confirmed the signing of Umar Sadiq on a season long loan from Roma.

The 21-year-old joined the Italian club in 2016 but has spent most of his time on loan since signing and in his six appearances for the senior side, he has scored two goals.

Last season, he enjoyed spells at Torino and Dutch side NAC Breda, scoring five goals in 15 appearances.

The rangy striker who is nicknamed ‘The Flute’ because of his slender frame, is expected to sign a season-long loan deal for Steven Gerrard’s Rangers, and the new boss has been busy in his first transfer window as manager.

The Liverpool legend has so far added Connor Goldson, Nikola Katic, Jamie Murphy, Allan McGreggor, Scott Arfield, Ovie Ejaria and Lassana Coulibaly to his squad this summer.
