Rangers bring in Ramsey on loan


Rangers have tonight confirmed the arrival of Aaron Ramsey on loan from Serie A powerhouse Juventus. 


Ramsey was not short on offers as Monday's deadline approached, with a host of Premier League teams courting the Welshman. 


However, Rangers have won the race to land the midfielder's services in what is a huge boost for the Scottish Premiership side ahead of Wednesday's Old Firm Derby. 


"Rangers are delighted to announce the loan signing of Wales international midfielder Aaron Ramsey from Juventus until the end of the season," a statement read on the club's official website. 


"The former Arsenal man will add quality and further competition in the middle of the park for Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s side as they continue to compete on three fronts between now and May. 


"Ramsey began his career at Cardiff City, and was their youngest-ever player. After helping the Championship side reach the FA Cup final in 2008, he made the move to Arsenal. 


"With the Gunners, he scored the winner against Allan McGregor’s Hull City in the 2014 FA Cup Final, won the tournament again the year after and grabbed another winner in the 2017 Final. 


"In all, he made 371 appearances for the London club in an extraordinary 11-year spell which was punctuated with loan time at Nottingham Forest and Cardiff in 2010/11 as he recovered from a broken leg." 



Ramsey has registered just 97 minutes of Serie A action this season and he'll look to play a key role for Rangers in the second half of the campaign.
