'He can dominate games' - Smithies raves about Rangers midfielder
Queens Park Rangers goalkeeper Alex Smithies believes Rangers loanee Sean Goss can “dominate” games in during his loan spell in Glasgow.
Goss penned a season-long loan deal with the Gers and made his first appearance for the Light Blues in Friday morning’s win over Atletico Mineiro in Orlando and impressed fans with his 45-minute run-out.
The 22-year-old midfielder is expected to play a big part for Graeme Murty’s side as they struggle with injuries to a number of key midfielders going into the second-half of the season.
Smithies believes the move will be an “ideal opportunity” for Goss to play regular games and continue his development.
“I think it’s an ideal opportunity for Sean,” Smithies said, as quoted by Get West London.
“He’s a very talented player with great technical ability and I think going to Scotland he’ll get to play in a lovely stadium week-in week-out and big things will be expected of the side he’s playing for.
“I certainly think he can dominate games with his passing and his technical ability.”
Goss spent five years with Manchester United before leaving Old Trafford in a £500,000 move last January.
After making a handful of appearances for QPR’s first-team last season, Goss struggled to in a place and had yet to make an appearance this term before heading to sign for the Gers.
Goss will almost certainly be given another appearance when the Gers face Corinthians on Saturday night in their final Florida Cup fixture before returning to Scotland.
Graeme Murty’s side return to domestic action on January 21st when they face Highland League minnows Fraserburgh in the fourth round of the Scottish Cup before welcoming Aberdeen to Ibrox in the Scottish Premiership three days later.
