Abdallah Sima hasn’t ruled out staying at Rangers after the in-form Senegal international’s latest clutch of goals continued his staggering run in the Ibrox first team following a rather slow start, shall we say.
Somehow, the former Praha man has found his feet at Rangers, and is finally starting to realise a lot of his potential, but when pressed on his future, didn’t say no to Rangers at all.
“I don’t know (about my future) I’m just happy to be here and to score goals and enjoy every minute of being here at Rangers. Before I came here, they told me it is a big club with amazing fans, but I didn’t expect it to be as big as it is. Let’s see what is going to happen in a few months.”
Very wise words. Rather than saying yes or no, Sima simply compliments the club and fans and leaves his future up in the air.
Of course, his primary focus is to break into Brighton’s first team, but as great as he’s been for Rangers, managing it in the Premier League is a whole other ball game, and Brighton’s stock is, as we know, sky high these days.
In the way Ryan Kent didn’t have a hope in hell of breaking into Liverpool’s first team, ditto fellow youth graduate at Anfield Harry Wilson, neither does Sima in all honesty at the Seasiders, and he’s better served thriving at a club the size of Rangers, which very few players get to enjoy, frankly.
And by saying ‘let’s see’ he’s offering the possibility of remaining in Govan and certainly not ruling it out.
We are of course a much bigger club than Brighton, bigger everything, the only thing we can’t offer is the Premier League but we think he’s out of his depth at that level.
And we’ll see if he wants to remain longer term.
