New Rangers signing Sean Goss has revealed Gers’ Under-20’s midfielder Jordan Thompson helped push him towards signing for the Light Blues on a season-long loan deal.
The pair lived together when they were part of Manchester United’s Academy together and 22-year-old Goss admitted he spoke with his former flatmate before agreeing to a temporary switch from QPR.
Thompson joined the Gers from United under Mark Warburton and has made a handful of first-team appearances but has struggled to force his way into a regular first-team spot.
Goss also revealed “massive Rangers fan” Thompson would wake him up when Rangers were playing on TV during their time living together.
“I’ve watched quite a few of the games, and I was woken up every morning by a massive Rangers fan in Jordan Thompson,” Goss said, as quoted by the club’s official website.
“I have spoken to him quite a bit and he couldn’t say enough about the club.
“For me it’s a no-brainer really.
“Rangers is a massive football club with a massive fanbase as well, and being out there seeing the stadium was unbelievable.”
Goss left Old Trafford 12 months ago when he completed a £500,000 move to QPR but, after a handful of appearances last season, the German-born midfielder has struggled to make an impact on the first-team at Loftus Road.
The 22-year-old will join his new team-mates when they jet out to Florida to face Atletico Mineiro and Corinthians in the Flordia Cup and is likely to make his competitive debut against Highland League minnows Fraserburgh on January 21st in the Scottish Cup.
Goss’ contract with QPR runs 2020 with no agreement in his loan deal to make it a permanent transfer if he impresses in Scotland.
