Sources: Rangers to let Diallo go as loan move turns sour

Rangers plan to let Amad Diallo go at the earliest opportunity as his loan move turns sour, Football Insider understands.

The capture of the Man United winger, 19, in January on a six-month deal was hailed as a big coup for the Glasgow giants.

But the move has not worked out as planned and an Ibrox source has now told Football Insider that Diallo will be let go at the first opportunity.

There are no plans to attempt to extend the deal into next season, or attempt to negotiate a permanent deal.

Instead Diallo will return to his parent club and United are likely to look to loan him out again next term.

He has failed to make the impact in Glasgow that both he and the Rangers hierarchy hoped when he became one of two exciting late-January acquisitions along with another loan star Aaron Ramsey.

Neither have lived up to expectations and call into question the transfer policy of recruitment chief Ross Wilson.

Diallo was signed after it emerged that Ianis Hagi would miss the rest of the season due to a knee injury.

He has made just six appearances for Rangers, which have yielded only one goal and no assists.

Diallo joined Man United in January of last year for a fee of up to £34million including performance-related add-ons.

He signed from Serie A club Atalanta on a deal until 2025 with the option of a further year.
