Rangers fans have taken to social media to express their mixed opinions after the club announced that Declan John had signed a season-long loan deal from Cardiff City.

The Light Blues announced the news to supporters on their official Twitter account and official website on Thursday afternoon.

The 22-year-old mainly plays at left-back and will provide support for Gers skipper Lee Wallace over the current campaign.

Many fans called out to the new signing on Twitter and asked him to do the club proud, while other supporters were hoping that the Glaswegian side would announce Hearts midfielder Jamie Walker instead.

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.
