Rangers sign Sean Goss on loan until end of the season

Rangers have completed the loan signing of QPR midfielder Sean Goss until the end of the season.

The 22-year-old has failed to make a single appearance for the English Championship side this season and will now spend the second half of the season at Ibrox as he looks for regular first-team football.

Speaking to Rangers TV following his move, Goss said it was an easy decision to move north of the border to sign for Graeme Murty’s side.

“For me, it’s a no-brainer really,” he said. “Rangers is a massive football club with a massive fanbase as well, and being out there seeing the stadium was unbelievable.

“I know it is a tough league and there is a lot expected of the Rangers players. That is why I’m here – I want to challenge myself at a big club and I can’t wait to get going.

“It’s been frustrating for me personally the last year or so with game time, but I’m hoping to come here and do well for this club.

“[The experience of playing for Manchester United] will help. They are both massive clubs with a lot of fans all over the world. I am hoping to bring that experience with me.”

Goss signed for QPR in January 2017 following a £800,000 move from Manchester United, where he failed to break into the Old Trafford first team. He made three starts and three substitute appearances for Ian Holloway’s side last season before following down the pecking order after the London club signed Josh Scowen on a free transfer from Barnsley in the summer.

Rangers will travel to the States on Friday to play in the Florida Cup and Murty’s first signing of the January transfer window is looking forward to the trip.

He said: “I can’t wait and I think that will be a great thing for me to meet all the boys. It is a great time to go away and get to know them, and obviously, there are a couple of games over there as well, so I would like to impress in them.

“I’m really looking forward to living here too. I’ve heard it’s a lively city, and I look forward to settling in. But firstly, I look forward to going away with the boys to Florida, have a good week over there and then come back to the reality of it and get stuck into all of the games.”
