It’s been a busy month for the Rangers fans here in the Transfer Tavern already as those behind the scenes look to clean up the mess they created with the whole Pedro Caixinha saga. With Sean Goss already in and Jamie Murphy on his way, our resident Gers are eager to see the overhaul continue.
Well, that’s exactly what has happened today. While the departure of academy graduate Jordan Thompson may not be the biggest news to break during the window up and down Great Britain, it has certainly sparked a reaction amongst those propping up our bar.
The Light Blues confirmed on their official website that the midfielder had made a move to Scottish Championship outfit Livingston on loan earlier today, with the Northern Irishman joining the Lions until the end of May after failing to break the first-team under Graeme Murty. A former Manchester United trainee, the 21-year-old made just three appearances this season and his departure won’t be missed at Ibrox.
Still, it’s good to see a youth product handed the chance to develop – albeit at another club – following the success of Rangers’ burgeoning talents in recent months.
Having already been at both Rangers and Manchester United during his short career thus far, Thompson must have bags of talent. Indeed, a move across to Livingston may be good for him to add some steel into his game and hopefully return to Ibrox a much better player.
