Warbs admits he wants this duo out on loan


Rangers manager Mark Warburton has admitted Jordan Thompson is a player he wants to send out on loan, but as yet no deal has been brokered to take the former Man Utd youth player away from Ibrox to learn his trade due to the squad being too lean for now.

Heavily advocating the loan system which gives less-used players the chance to get first team football and an ‘education’ in the discipline, Warburton conceded he rates Thompson highly and wants to deploy him as a substitute more frequently, but the chances have not been there yet and the midfielder would benefit more from a loan out.

Warburton explained:

“We are delighted with Jordan’s progress, to come in and to find your feet as he did and to get used to the club as quickly as he has, has been first class on his part. He is one like Tom (Walsh) who could benefit from a loan, but right now he is in our squad and on our bench.”

Both Thompson and Walsh have barely featured in recent months, even as substitutes, but are vital cover.

Warburton went on:

“If we can get one or two players in then maybe that loan option becomes viable, but right now he would be staying with us.”

Rangers’ struggles in getting midfielders are well-documented, and with only a couple of days left of the transfer window, it does not appear to be getting resolved any time soon.


  1. I think Jordan Thompson is a gem of a player. Definitely needs to be playing every week.Again today against Falkirk Zelalem showed he will not strike a ball for goal. Simply cannot or will not commit to a shot for a goal. Mental block ? definitely.There are many similar types at Rangers and although they are top of the league today they were very fortunate with King's wonderful header to win the game. A big game on Tuesday. a couple of players off the pace today, and Halliday was missed.McKay brilliant but system can't seem to take such an advantage and turn it into goals.

  2. I am not sure on the criticism of Zelalem. For a young guy he looks incredibly composed. He keeps the engine ticking and the ball rolling.
    I think the lad is a wonderful footballer.

  3. Every game is big now Tuesday I will be watching the game ,plus I will be waiting to here how the crooks that put us in this position get on .I hope that every one of them get along jail sentence WATP

  4. Totally agree and wee willy king will be worth millions in a year or so then we cash in on him him and it's onwards and upwards to champions League last 8 that's for sure . No surrender , rule Britannia, no one loves us and starting to Kerr (jim) we the peeps
