Manchester United Loanee Amad Diallo Ripped It Up On Rangers Debut, He's Already Too Good For Scottish Football

Amad Diallo was absolutely electric on his Rangers debut after signing on loan from Manchester United.

The Ivorian has played just once for Manchester United this season, starting the 1-1 Champions League draw with Young Boys at Old Trafford in December.

Derby County had reportedly been keen on the 19-year-old but out of nowhere SPFL champions Rangers secured his services until the end of the season on Thursday.

Diallo went straight into the starting eleven for Rangers' dramatic 3-3 draw and made an instant impact, scoring inside five minutes at the Global Energy Stadium.

He showed great movement to get in at the far post to tap home the cross from Joe Aribo and he was also involved in the second goal scored by James Tavernier after he cut in from the right and fired a shot that was palmed back into danger.

But the whole performance from the 19-year-old was seriously impressive.

Wearing the No.9 on his back, he was bright and exciting whenever he got the ball at his feet and looked like he was going to produce something.

There was one instance where he came up with the most glorious turn to absolutely rinse his full-back and it really was poetry in motion stuff.

Diallo played 65 minutes in and had 38 touches, as well as attempting four dribbles. Rangers were 2-1 down at half-time and turned it around with goals from Tavernier and Connor Goldson.

But the league leaders conceded a 95th minute equaliser when substitute Matthew Wright scored his first goal for the club.

On the loan addition of Diallo, manager Giovanni van Bronckhorst said: “I’m very happy that he wanted to come to us for the remainder of the season.

"We were looking to add a player in the front because we lost Ianis Hagi for the season, so I’m happy we could bring in a player with his qualities.

“I’m sure he will give us a lot of strength in the coming months.

“When we talked with him and his agent and we really just explained how we are as a club, what kind of environment he would come into as a player."

Diallo signed for United from Atalanta in a deal that could total £37 million.
