Rangers: Gerrard provides Fashion Sakala update

Rangers: Gerrard provides Fashion Sakala update - Rangers News

Glasgow Rangers manager Steven Gerrard has revealed that passport and pandemic issues have prevented new signing Fashion Sakala from joining up with the squad so far.

The Lowdown: Gers sign Sakala

The striker was the Gers’ first signing of the summer as he arrived from Belgian outfit Oostende on a free transfer (rangers.co.uk).

Only the biggest Gers fan will get 10/10 on our 2020/21 quiz... Who played the most minutes for Rangers in all competitions?

However, he is yet to start pre-season training with the Scottish champions, and Gerrard has now provided an update on the 24-year-old.

The Latest: Sakala issues arise

Discussing the current status of his squad, Gerrard said (via Glasgow Live):

“We need to add to it, so we’re actively working hard to bring some good players in alongside the recruitment already done in Jack (Simpson), Scott (Wright), Nnamdi (Ofoborh) and Fashion Sakala will join us in the coming days.

“We’ve got some passport and Covid issues to get through first but he’s very excited to join us as well.”

The Verdict: Sort it out soon

With the Gers now having started pre-season, this will no doubt be inconvenient for Gerrard. It is surprising that this situation has arisen – the Gers confirmed the free transfer signing of Sakala on May 4, two months ago today, so he has had plenty of time to get to Glasgow and get ready for the season.

Are you happy with the signing of Sakala?

There could be plenty more pressure and expectation on the £3.6m-valued Zambia international (Transfermarkt) next term given that Alfredo Morelos could be on the way out of the door – he continues to be linked with a move to Porto (Antena 1). As such, the Ibrox outfit must look to sort out these problems as soon as possible.

In other news, this Rangers man has received a four-game ban.
