Glasgow Rangers have confirmed on their official website that young Manchester City winger Aaron Nemane has joined on loan until January.

The 19-year-old has penned a short-term deal with the Gers, with the new man in contention to feature in their clash with Ross County on Sunday.

Nemane will be well-known by the new director of football at Ibrox, Mark Allen, who himself only just recently joined the club having arrived from the Citizens in July.

The 19-year-old has already had a bright start to his footballing career, having made his Under-21 debut for City at the age of just 16 and featured for the club in the UEFA Youth League the same year.

Having been in charge of the academy at the Etihad Stadium for seven years, he would have overseen the French-born winger’s progression first-hand and will be quietly confident the winger can add something new to Rangers boss Pedro Caxinha’s side.

The Gers manager has been busy this summer, adding many of his own recruits as he looks to strengthen his team.

Rangers have added nine other signings so far, with the likes of Bruno Alves, Graham Dorrans, Ryan Jack and Eduardo Herrera joining the Ibrox outfit.

However, it the Glasgow giants have had an inconsistent start to the 2017-18 campaign.

Rangers were embarrassed in the early part of the season as they were dumped out of the Europa League qualifiers against Luxembourg outfit Progres Niederkorn and are already some way behind Old Firm rivals Celtic in the Scottish Premiership.

The Gers fans will hope that Nemane can provide thrust in the final third and his promise in the City youth ranks can be translated into first-team football in Scotland.

Rangers currently have the likes of Daniel Candeias and Josh Windass operating on the flanks, with the new man’s arrival offering Caixinha strength in depth.
