Rotherham United manager Paul Warne has spoken highly of Rangers-owned winger Jake Hastie, as quoted in The Evening Express.

Hastie joined Rotherham in League One in England on loan from Steven Gerrard’s Glasgow Rangers in the summer transfer window.

The 20-year-old winger has taken to League One like a duck to water, and has been playing brilliantly for the Millers.

The Scotland Under-21 international – who joined Rangers only in the summer of 2019 on a free transfer having already agreed a pre-contract with the Gers – has scored three goals in three league appearances for Rotherham so far this season, according to WhoScored.

Hastie’s latest goal for Warne’s side come on Tuesday evening when he scored in the 1-1 draw with Sunderland away from home at the Stadium of Light in League One.

Rotherham boss Warne has spoken highly of Hastie, and is pleased to have secured the services of the winger.

Warne told The Evening Express about Hastie: “Jake’s been here three weeks and done really well. He hasn’t really played a lot of football since April time so he’s still getting into the swing of things really.

“I’ve spent most of the summer trying to get a couple of wingers, and thankfully we managed to get him in before the window closed.

“He’s a menace. Credit to him for the way he played again, he’s a young lad who is trying to make his mark. I thought he played really well for us.”

Hastie will hope to continue his progress and development at Rotherham, and then make an impact at Rangers upon his return.
