Rangers are reportedly homing in on a deal for Liverpool youngster Ovie Ejaria, but some Sunderland fans have taken to Twitter to warn Rangers fans about him.
The Scottish Sun claim that Ejaria, who spent the second half of last season at Sunderland, is set to be unleashed on loan again, with Steven Gerrard and Rangers set to be the recipients.
The report claims that the deal is set to be concluded this week.
However, some Sunderland fans weren’t overly impressed with Ejaria and have taken to Twitter to let Rangers fans know in no uncertain terms what they’re getting.
One Sunderland fan kicked things off by wishing Rangers fans “good luck” and saying that he is a “hopeless” footballer.
Others followed suit although several fans did say that it was a pretty harsh assessment of the youngster, who only made 11 appearances for the Mackems last season.
Some think there’s some raw talent there but that he isn’t at Championship level yet.
Here are the best reactions from Sunderland fans to the news that Ejaria could be poised to move to Rangers:
Ejaria to sign for Rangers.
Good luck Gers fans 😂 hopeless footballer

Slightly harsh maybe ?! He played in a side almost devoid of any self belief or tactical awareness. Showed flashes that he has ability. Could be better at that standard.

In hindsight he was a really bad signing. A young, soft, luxury player was never what that team needed. He’ll look good in a good team. Hasn’t (yet) got enough character to grab games by the scruff.

Bit harsh, has good technical ability, but surround him with bampots and a dysfunctional club and what do you expect? Good luck @ the ABAX, Kassam & Spotland, tickets shouldn't ne a problem 🤡

Slightly harsh i think. Obviously raw, and lacking what it takes for Championship football. But it was his first experience of proper football, not his fault he wasn’t what we needed.

Hardly hopeless, he a good player just not strong enough

If only he stayed on his feet for longer than 5 minutes at a time we may have seen more. He defo has potential and his debut showed he is a good player. Just wrong place wrong time for him. I wish him luck. Probs player of the year in that league.
