New Rangers signing Amad Diallo has disclosed why he opted for the Scottish Premiership champions ahead of the other interested clubs following his loan move from Premier League team Manchester United. The Ivorian international gave the reason for his transfer to Rangers in his first interview with Rangers TV.

Diallo was deemed surplus to requirements for the first team squad at Manchester United and was allowed to move out on loan for the rest of the season. The young forward picked Scottish champions from the list of clubs keen to take him on loan until the summer.

On his choice, Diallo told Rangers TV that the club was the ideal one for him to continue his development and that playing in the Scottish Premiership is similar to playing in the Premier League.

Diallo admitted that he didn’t know much about Rangers before he signed for the club and that he has been blown away by what he has experienced. The Manchester United loanee talked about being impressed with the training ground and that he can’t wait to get started.

Rangers boss Giovanni Van Bronckhorst has moved to bolster his squad in the attacking positions after the serious injury picked up by Romanian import IanisHagi. Ianis is the son of the legendary footballer Gheorghe Hagi who's widely regarded as the best player to ever come out of Romania. Hagi won’t play again this season after he suffered a serious knee injury. Dutch tactician Van Bronckhorst has ensured that Rangers won't miss the attacking influence of Hagi too much with the loan signing of the aforementioned Diallo.

Diallo could make his Rangers debut in the league clash with Ross County this weekend. He has been at Manchester United since the start of last year on the back of his big move from Italian Serie A side Atalanta.
