Rangers have confirmed the signing of Lassana Coulibaly on a season-long loan from Angers.

Rangers boss Steven Gerrard has suggested that his team are nearing a deal for Roma forward Sadiq Umar.

The Mali global joined the Gers on a season-long loan deal on Tuesday, arriving from French outfit Angers and thus becoming the eighth signing of the summer for Steven Gerrard.

"I am a midfielder and I am physically strong", the 22-year-old told his club's official website.

Speaking exclusively to RangersTV Sadiq said: "It is very good to be here, it has been good so far and I can't wait to start".

He told me about the team, the players, that everyone will be at my side if I come here and he will help me to go forward in my career.

"In football you never know what is going to happen but hard work pays and with the work I am going to do here I think I will be successful". When he was at Liverpool, I grew up watching him.

"I play midfield, I'm strong and physical and I can get the ball from the opponent for my team". I don't watch the league, but I know about Celtic and Rangers in Scotland.

Both players could make their debut in Thursday's Europa League opener against Macedonian outfit Shkupi - midnight on Wednesday is the deadline. Coulibaly told Rangers TV.

"He asked me if I wanted to join his team, and I said yes, although I was anxious it wasn't actually Gerrard [on the phone]!"

Allan McGregor, Jon Flanagan, Nikola Katic, Connor Goldson, Scott Arfield and Ovie Ejaria have all arrived this summer, and with Coulibaly and Sadiq now on board, it's nine summer signings for Rangers ahead of the new season.

Speaking to RangersTV Sadiq - whose deal is subject to worldwide clearance and who claimed that, "in Nigeria I am compared to the legend Kanu and Emmanuel Adebayor" - said: "It is very good to be here, it has been good so far and I can't wait to start".
