Ovie Ejaria close to sealing loan move to Rangers

04 June 2018

"I'm happy he has got the Rangers job and it will be good for him. I haven't spoken to my agent since pretty much the end of the season".

Linked with Rangers on a near weekly basis, the Leeds-born forward joked: 'Tell me about it.

He said: "Gerrard's a legend".

'You know what football is like with the amount of speculation. The front three are phenomenal with the stats they have got this season. Whether that's with me there or not it is what it is.

When Hodson arrived at Ibrox he was always here more to make up the numbers and give the Gers a back-up should something have happened to James Tavernier or Lee Wallace and he's probably played more games than most would have expected - making 27 appearances for the Gers in a just under two years with the Light Blues. I don't think it was as close as everyone was saying in January.

'I had three options - and Rangers were not one, ' he revealed.

McBurnie played for Scotland against Peru last Tuesday night and Mexico on Saturday and is keen to keep playing regular competitive football so he can remain involved with the national side next season.

"I'm hoping that he's got some money to spend, he can attract some loan players".

The highly-rated striker made 21 Premier League appearances last season and would be a major coup for Gerrard.

While Wallace's future at Ibrox looks bleak, Tavernier and John are the clear first-picks in their respective positions and Hodson is a long way off displacing either of them and could have to contend with further competition as Gerrard brings his own players in over the summer. I want to be somewhere I can play every week and be the main man.

'But I want to play first-team football now.

"We are so lucky to have them and for me to watch them every week and learn from them definitely helps my game". It's ambitious, but that's what I want to do.
