Rangers interested in German winger

Rangers have taken former Hamburg midfielder Josef Shirdel on trial. The young winger, 21, spent January on trial at Upton Park for West Ham but failed to secure a deal despite Sam Allardyce’s high interest in him, and is currently a free agent.

Shirdel is a German-born Afghani and his strongest positions are winger/forward. He was freed by Hamburg last July and has struggled to secure a new Club since then, therefore he would jump at the chance to gain a slot as part of Stuart McCall’s new era at Rangers.

The Ibrox side are not exactly short of decent options in creative attack right now, with Templeton, Vuckic and Shiels all vying for places, but another signature certainly helps with squad depth and a player with Bundesliga experience (he broke into the senior squad in 2013) is certainly not unwelcome as McCall looks to secure SPL football for next season.


  1. Give the boy a chance ,if he is good enough sign him there will be plenty room when we get rid of the 12 out of contract .we have to bring in some new players along with the young boys we have.

    1. very true we will get there soon, stand by out team and support them all we can, watp.

  2. If he's premier league material take him.
