Rangers target chooses French side over Ibrox; reports

Rangers have reportedly missed out on loan target Lassana Coulibaly due to French side Metz securing the player ahead of Steven Gerrard’s men.

The attacking midfielder had been waiting on a work permit before being able to take the move to Ibrox from Angers forward, only for Metz to come in and snap him up instead.

Latest information is the 22-year old Mali international creative midfielder is very near finalising a year-long loan deal to the Ligue 2 side instead of Rangers, which does beg the question of his ambition if he’ll accept a second division French outfit over the Famous Rangers with a title pop and European football to boast.

But hey ho, if he’d rather have lower ambitions than what Rangers can offer him, it’s his career and his choice.

Rangers will move onto alternative targets if need be and indeed today have been more heavily linked again with Bournemouth’s Jermain Defoe.
