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

Earlier on Tuesday, Lassana Coulibaly expressed his excitement at teaming up with Gerrard after completing his season-long loan deal from Angers.

Glasgow Rangers could see their chances of qualifying for the Europa League boosted by the arrival of striker Umar Sadiq from Roma, before the first leg of their opening tie against FK Shkupi on Thursday, according to the Evening Times.

With Gerrard at the other end of the line inviting him to join Rangers, an awestruck Coulibaly first thought the call was a hoax before agreeing to a loan move at Ibrox.

"Gerrard told me about the team, the players, he said everyone will help me if I came here and he will help me go forward in my career, and you don't have to think twice when someone says that to you".

Sadiq had been awaiting work permit clearance before he was able to complete a switch that Steven Gerrard believes will add power to the Ibrox attack. I was anxious it wasn't actually Gerrard (on the phone).


The fans already seem to have given him an interesting nickname but I'll let you discover that for yourselves, I couldn't possible repeat the intimation here!

"Rangers are a good team and I knew the name before Gerrard came in".

"We didn't talk that much about how the team or I would play it was all just Rangers, Rangers, and Rangers".

Mali worldwide Coulibaly, who has been capped 10 times, admits the lure of playing for Gerrard was too good to turn down.
