The Scottish Premiership giant, Rangers lost the league title to a rejuvenated Celtic in 2021/22. ‘The Teddy Bears’ will look to bounce back in the upcoming league season and regain the title from their arch-rivals. The club is looking into the transfer market to strengthen their squad to mount a strong challenge.
Rangers have identified a young prospect from Bayern Munich as a worthy candidate for their squad. Malik Tillman is a 20-year-old versatile player who primarily plays as an attacking midfielder. Julian Nagelsmann has identified the US international as a promising young talent and expects him to become a top player.
Rangers have announced the signing of the young star from Bayern Munich on a season-long loan deal. However, the club from Glasgow has also secured an exclusive option to buy the attacking midfielder from the Bavarians.
The US international has moved away from Munich in search of regular first-team football. The attacking midfielder has only represented Bayern Munich twice from the bench. The youngster felt that he needs more minutes to develop into a world-class player.
Rangers are over the moon with the signing of Tillman
The 20-year old speaking about his transfer said that:
“I am really excited to sign for Rangers and I’m looking forward to getting started. It is a new challenge for me at a huge club with fantastic supporters and I can’t wait for the season ahead.”
Giovanni van Bronckhorst, the Rangers’ Manager said that:
“I am very pleased to welcome Malik to our squad ahead of the 2022/23 season. He is an exciting young talent who will further add to our attacking options and myself and the coaching staff are looking forward to working with him.”
The club is really excited to have signed a highly rated young prospect for the club. The signing will also help improve Rangers position in the American market. Speaking of the acquisition, the Sporting Director of Rangers said that:
“We are pleased that amongst his many options Malik has chosen to become a Rangers player. He’s a talented young man, one that we have been working on for a number of weeks. Not only are we pleased to welcome Malik for the season ahead we have also secured an exclusive option to buy with Bayern Munich. We thank Bayern for their cooperation across all of our discussions.”
However, despite all the hype, it is important for Malik Tillman to put his head down and work hard at Rangers. The player will have the opportunity to play European Football at the Glasgow outfit which will help his overall development as a player. It will be intriguing to see how Tillman settles at the club and whether he is able to fulfill the potential that everyone sees in the US international.
