Rangers attacker Aaron Nemane has revealed he jumped at the chance to move to Ibrox on loan in August – admitting that you “can’t say no” to the Glasgow giants.
Nemane joined the Gers on loan until January and has been limited to brief substitute appearances so far for Pedro Caixinha’s side.
The youngster has only played 10 minutes of first-team football but some fans would like to see him replace Josh Windass at left-wing when the Gers return to action on October 13 after the current international break ends.
The 19-year-old attack-minded winger was a regular in Manchester City’s Under-23 side before making the move north of the border and revealed that getting first-team experience was a big factor in his decision.
“I spoke to my agent, I spoke to the people at City and then the people at Rangers who made it clear they wanted me, and you can’t say no to Rangers!” Nemane told Rangers’ official website.
“I want to get some first-team experience as I’ve not had that at City.
“I’m a very direct player who likes to get on the ball, make chances, get assists and score goals.”
Nemane starred for Graeme Murty’s Under-20’s side in Sunday’s fixture with Brentford B.
The winger scored along with Jamie Barjonas and hat-trick hero Ryan Hardie in the 5-2 win as they continued the club’s ambitious ‘Academy Games’ project.
Nemane was born in France but raised in Blackley, near Manchester, and came through the Manchester City academy where Rangers’ new Director of Football Mark Allen worked.
He would have likely featured in the friendly clash with Benfica in Canada this week before it was cancelled by the organisers.
