Rangers fans react on Twitter to Toral signing

By Harvey Byrne

Rangers confirmed the loan signing of young midfielder Jon Toral from Arsenal on Thursday afternoon – and Gers supporters on Twitter are delighted.

The 21-year-old midfielder had his loan cut short by La Liga side Granada in the week, enabling a move to the Scottish giants.

It will be the second time Toral has played under manager Mark Warburton after having already played for him at Championship side Brentford.

He had long been liked with a move to the Glasgow-based club and it was announced on Thursday that he had joined until the end of the season.

Rangers fans on social media are happy to see the deal completed and many are eager to find out what he has to offer their side.

Here are a selection of their messages on Twitter:

As well as Brentford and Granada, Toral has enjoyed a spell out on loan with Championship side Birmingham.

He is yet to make his senior debut for Arsenal, but he will now be keen to impress in the Premiership under a manager he knows well.

Rangers were notably weak in the centre of the park before the transfer window due to Joey Barton leaving and Niko Kranjcar and Jordan Rossiter suffering injuries.

However, Warburton has brought Emerson Hyndman in on loan alongside Toral and they will be keen to secure second place when the league restarts later in January.
