Rangers have been given a little bonus going forward after Amad Diallo’s excellent Dundee United cameo revived his chances of remaining in Govan next season.

The on-loan Man Utd winger has struggled to impress at Ibrox, despite clearly showing the talent, and suffered a loss of form and confidence following Gio’s mistake of selecting him for Parkhead and the subsequent (disgraceful) abuse the young Ivorian took from most fans as a result.

But as with it all, time has changed things and his impressive appearance v Utd, following one or two glimpses in recent weeks of a slight upturn in form, has given a possibility to his being extended at Rangers for a full season.

Remember, Diallo, like Gio, came mid-season and had no time to settle before being thrust into the Parkhead cauldron – he’s not really had a good run in the side.

But the talent is evident, and Rangers still don’t, aside the former Atalanta man, have a decent option for right wing at all.

There’s no coincidence Utd paid a total of £40M potential for the attacker, and we’ve seen little bits and pieces of the quality that earned such a pricetag.

But his two goals have shown a combination of clinical finishing and positional reading and plenty sign he’s capable of so much more than his overall spell has demonstrated.

We’ll see this summer if he’ll be like a new signing.

  1. Depending on the finances , I would try to keep this lad for at least till January to see if he can ‘grow his role’ at Ibrox. As you say there is no doubt he is talented, but a little timid .
