Declan John joins a host of new faces at the Ibrox as boss Pedro Caixinha has had a busy summer of recruitment.
While John is the club’s eleventh signing in total, he is the third player to join the Gers on a temporary basis as Aaron Nemane is on loan from Manchester City as well as Benfica’s Dalcio.
Caixinha has performed a big squad overhaul during his first transfer window at the helm of the club.
