Rangers: Lassana Coulibaly is Steven Gerrard's latest signing

Roma striker Umar Sadiq has arrived in Scotland to complete his loan move to Rangers. Having broken into Roma's squad aged just 18, he's also scored twice for them in six senior appearances.

According to Daily Record understands t5he 21-year-old striker Sadiq jetted into Glasgow on Monday night and is expected to sign a season-long loan with attacking midfielder Coulibaly is also poised to join him for the campaign after making the move from French outfit Angers.

Rangers boss Steven Gerrard says that his players must be able to handle pressure if they are to succeed at the club.

"I found out Rangers were interested in me about a month ago when I was on holiday in Nigeria". Coulibaly told Rangers TV.

"He called me about two weeks ago and from there I started changing my mind". When he was at Liverpool, I grew up watching him.

"In football you never know what is going to happen but hard work pays and with the work I am going to do here I think I will be successful".


"Rangers is a good team, I'd heard the name before Gerrard came in here".

He must now turn his attention to Thursday's Europa League qualifying match against Macedonian team FK Shkupi.

"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".

"I'm very happy to be here", Coulibaly, capped nine times for Mali, said. "I knew about Rangers because everybody knows about them".

"He can help me to develop".
