Rangers have confirmed the signing of QPR midfielder Sean Goss on a loan move until the end of the season. The 22-year-old made a switch to West London from Manchester United in January last year and has gone on to make 6 first-team appearances under manager Ian Holloway. The German-born midfielder who can also play at right-back passed a medical at the Glaswegian club on the first week of January.
The 22-year-old has come through the youth ranks at Manchester United and has played under Nicky Butt in United’s Carrington academy. However, he was unable to break into the Red Devils’ senior team due to a serious back injury and was moved on to Queens Park Rangers last year. Since his move to West London, Goss played in 6 matches for QPR with his time at the club mostly plagued with injuries. He has signed for Rangers this month in search of more first-team football.
“Rangers is a massive football club with a massive fanbase as well, and being out there seeing the stadium was unbelievable.
“I know it is a tough league and there is a lot expected of the Rangers players. That is why I’m here – I want to challenge myself at a big club and I can’t wait to get going.
“[The experience of playing for Manchester United] will help. They are both massive clubs with a lot of fans all over the world. I am hoping to bring that experience with me.”
Let’s take a look at how Graeme Murty’s Rangers will line up with Sean Goss in their side.
4-5-1 Rangers Predicted Strongest XI With Sean Goss In The Backline
Wes Foderingham will start in goal for the Bluenoses and should be protected by a back four consisting of Danny Wilson and David Bates in central defence along with James Tavernier playing as a right-back while Declan John takes his place on the left-hand side of the defence.
The injury to Bruno Alves in their last previous outing against Celtic will be a big blow for Rangers. However, manager Graeme Murty will be hoping that David Bates would be able to replace him in his starting eleven for the immediate future.
Jason Holt, Ross McCrorie and new signing, Sean Ross will be deployed in central midfield in Graeme Murty’s first-team. Daniel Candeias will start on the right flank while Josh Windass takes his place on the left side of the midfield.
Niko Kranjcar might have to settle for a place on the bench with the arrival of Sean Goss this month.
Alfredo Morelos will once again be deployed to lead the lines for Rangers and will be expected to bang in some goals going into the second half of the season. The forward has already scored 10 goals and grabbed 2 assists in 20 appearances in the Scottish Premiership this season.
