Rangers are very close to securing a deal for Jake Hastie, but will the Motherwell winger shine at Ibrox?
As reported by The Scotsman, Rangers are “on the verge” of completing the pre-signing of Hastie.
The young winger will be out of contract this summer, and the report claims the Gers will pay a small fee as compensation to Motherwell, due to the player’s age.
Hastie, 21, has an impressive tally of goals and assists in all competitions, but what do the writers at Football FanCast think about the move? Keep reading to find out…
“I do think Jake Hastie will be a hit at Ibrox. The 20-year-old appears to be a tall, powerful player with the finesse to make an impact in the final third, reinforced by his impressive goal tally in the second half of the season. With time on his side and plenty of room for growth and improvement, Hastie will become a huge fan favourite under Steven Gerrard at Rangers.”
“I think Hastie has all the tools to be a hit at Rangers and is exactly the type of player they need. He’d be a far better option than Ryan Kent who would cost a considerable amount if he were to make a permanent move to Ibrox. The Motherwell man would, therefore, represent far better better value and his goals to games ratio this season just shows how impressive he’s been. Considering his age, it would be a no brainer.”

“Given that he is so inexperienced at a top senior level it’s difficult to give a definitive answer, but the potential and quality is clearly there. At the end of the day you have to feel that Steven Gerrard has an eye for a good player having only recently come out of playing the game himself, so fans should trust in Gerrard on this one. Hastie is clearly talented and has shown he delivers when on the pitch – in that respect he can impact the title race in 2019/20 as Rangers look to stop Celtic’s dominance.”
