Rangers sign Lassana Coulibaly on season-long loan from Angers

  • Tottenham Hotspur's English midfielder Dele Alli falls to the ground as he is challenged by Millwall's English defender Tony Craig and Millwall's English defender Jake Cooper during

"He will be Steven Gerrard's ninth signing of the summer".

Coulibaly, a Mali global, could still be added to Gerrard's Europa League squad with Gers set to begin their qualifying campaign on Thursday night against Macedonian side Shkupi.

"Rangers are delighted to announce the signing of Umar Sadiq on a season long loan from Roma, subject to worldwide clearance".

Sadiq, 21, has struggled to pin down a regular shirt since linking up with AS Roma from Serie B side Spezia in 2015.

Rangers have already seen one bid for the 23-year-old centre-half knocked back last week, but Steven Gerrard has outlined the towering 6'6 defender as one of his main transfer targets this summer and has subsequently returned with an improved offer. Even if the plan was to stay at Roma I couldn't turn him down.

"I am very happy to be here", Coulibaly told Rangers TV.

"When my agent said that Gerrard is the head coach, I said, OK, no problem, and then I was happy to come and join this team".

Capped nine times by Mali, Coulibaly will be part of a cast of players expected to star in Gerrard's first top-flight football managerial test. I don't watch the league, but I know about Celtic and Rangers in Scotland.

Allan McGregor, Jon Flanagan, Scott Arfield, Jamie Murphy, Connor Goldson, Nikola Katic and Ovie Ejaria all joined earlier in the window. "When they asked me if I want to join this team or not, I said yes but I thought it might not really be Gerrard!"
