GVB admits he has no idea of Amad Diallo will get a second loan at Ibrox, but is pleased with how he’s settled in the past month following a troubled start to life at Ibrox.

The young Ivorian has won swathes of fans over the past few weeks, beginning to regain his confidence and showing a significant glimpse of what he can do, bagging two goals in as many matches, his second being a delightful finish in particular, but his loan in Govan expires at the end of the month.

And this has led to increasing calls from fans to extend the loan into next season, something Gio wasn’t against but could offer little more than praise of his recent spell.

He said:

“I’m happy with Amad. He’s been getting more minutes in the last few weeks He’s been training well, he had a moment where he found it a bit difficult with the new team he was in, the adaptation to a new city, but I’m really happy with him. He’s a very, very good winger as we’ve seen the last few weeks but we also have a lot of players in that position available who have also done well.”

Not entirely sure we’d agree we have a lot of players for the RW but we trust Gio’s judgement.

On the loan spell?

“I’m happy with his performance. His loan is to the end of the season, then he goes back to Manchester. If he’s here next season, I don’t know.”

So, for now, it’s up in the air.

We need quality on the RW, something we really lack. Diallo isn’t quite entrenched there but we can see what he can do now, and it would be good to extend the loan because Utd are a basket case now and he will surely be going on loan again this summer. Hopefully it’s back to Ibrox.
