Manchester United's On Loan Star Amad Diallo Scores Five Minutes Into Rangers Debut

Amad Diallo has scored his first goal on loan at Rangers, just five minutes into his debut for the Scottish Premiership champions.

Diallo arrived at Manchester United last year with a lot of excitement about the young winger, he scored an important Europa League goal against AC Milan during one of a handful of appearances last season but has failed to break into the team.

He was meant to go on loan to Feyenoord last summer but injury denied him the chance. On Thursday it was announced he'd be joining Rangers until the end of the season, having also been linked to Derby County in the transfer window.

The 19-year-old was put straight into the starting line up on Saturday afternoon, as the Scottish Premiership league leaders took on Ross County.

It took Diallo just five minutes to make an impact, as the Ivory Coast winger managed to slot home from close range, following good work from Joe Aribo, fresh from his time at the Africa Cup of Nations with Nigeria.

Diallo is clearly well liked at United and a huge prospect for the future, but fans will have been slightly disappointed that a player who cost £37 million hasn't been given too many opportunities.

His slight build might be one reason the club have been a bit reticent to play him in more games but he should get some much needed experience in Scotland.

If he can start to show the promise that United know he has north of the border then he could be considered a very important member of the squad next season, especially with the likes of Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard leaving.
