Gedion Zelalem celebrated the announcement that he would spend the rest of the season on loan by grabbing a classy backheel assist for the ‘Gers in their game against Cowdenbeath at the weekend.

The assist was for Martin Waghorn who scored Rangers’ third on the day as they strolled to a 5-1 win in the Scottish Cup fourth round on Sunday.

Zelalem hasn’t featured much lately for Mark Warburton’s side as the toll of playing regularly began to show on the youngster, but his class is still evident for all to see.



Speaking about Gedion and the decision to extend his loan deal, Warburton told the official Rangers site “Gedion is a really talented young player who is just eighteen years of age.

“You just need to look at his achievements as a young player and where he is today. He moved to a club of Arsenal’s stature and played in the Champions League away at Galatasaraay at 16 or 17 years of age and then came here, moving to Glasgow and dealing with the expectation is magnificent.

“I can`t speak high enough of Gedion, I think he will go on to play at the very highest level of the game.”
