Done deal: Rangers striker secures Ibrox exit after paperwork finalised
Rangers striker Ryan Hardie has left the club today on a loan deal that will see him join Livingston, the club has confirmed.
The Gers announced the news on their official Twitter page and website on Friday and said that the Scotland youth international would remain at the Tony Macaroni Stadium until the end of the season.

Hardie, 20, has featured eight times for the Light Blues during the 2017/18 campaign and will join Jordan Thompson who is also on loan at Livingston.
It will be the youngster’s fourth loan spell away from Rangers and a chance to help the Scottish Championship side’s bid for promotion.
Football Insider verdict:
This will be Hardie’s fourth loan move in his time at Rangers since his arrival at the club, having had two spells at Raith and one at St Mirren previously. Graeme Murty is in a high-pressure job and one that demands results instantly meaning he is always going to opt for experience over inexperience. If the young striker is going to aspire to be regular for the Gers then he will just have to continue biding his time by going on loan and hope that he gets a break somewhere along the way.
