Rangers haven’t had the best of starts in the Scottish Premiership this season as they have secured only one win in their three outings. The Gers won 1-2 against Motherwell at the Fir Park in their opening league fixture but were outclassed by Hibernian in their 2-3 loss at the Ibrox Stadium, which was followed by their 0-0 draw against Heart of Midlothian last weekend.
Pedro Caixinha has kept himself thoroughly invested this summer in terms of bringing new faces to the club. The former Al-Gharafa boss has made galvanizing names such as Bruno Alves, Graham Dorrans, Ryan Jack, Carlos Pena, Daniel Candeias and Fabio Cardoso (to name a few) sign on the dotted line. However, he has apparently lost out on his pursuit to sign Jamie Walker from Hearts after toiling relentlessly to secure his signature for a major chunk of the summer transfer window.
However, Rangers have lured Manchester City’s blossoming youngster in the shape of Aaron Nemane on loan, thanks to Rangers’ director of football Mark Allen. Allen joined the Glasgow based outfit in July after spending seven years monitoring the youth academy setup of the blue half of Manchester. He is very much familiar with the calibre Nemane possess and the fact that he facilitated a loan move for the youngster to Caixinha’s ranks is the testament of his views about the starlet.
The Teddy Bears have been sluggish at times in their attacking endeavours and it goes without saying that they needed someone to add some cutting edge from the wide areas, even after the arrival of Dalcio and Candeias. The 19-year-old thrives on pace and has the element of versatility to ply his trade on either wing. Apart from being a speed merchant, he has an excellent eye for banging goals as well as to create chances for his teammates and no wonder why he is so highly rated at the Etihad Stadium based outfit.
Besides, Nemane is technically very sound, dazzles while jotting crosses and cuts inside from the wings in a well-crafted manner to trouble the opposition defence. His dribbling skills are top notch and he maintains a neat control on the ball whilst going forward. Considering the plethora of stars Pep Guardiola has in his arsenal, his developments might have stagnated had he stayed at Manchester City. With a move to Rangers, he is likely to attain some opportunities with the first-team which might, in turn, render him an excellent opportunity to polish himself.
