Quintet Loaned To Rangers

Written by Newcastle Utd

United have agreed loan deals for five players to join Rangers for the remainder of the season


Newcastle United have agreed loan deals for five players to join Glasgow Rangers for the remainder of the 2014/15 season.

Those who will make the journey north of the border to Ibrox are Gael Bigirimana, Shane Ferguson, Kevin Mbabu, Remie Streete and Haris Vuckic.

Burundi-born Bigirimana, aged 21, joined United from Coventry in July 2012 and has made 26 first team appearances for the Magpies.

This season, however, he has been a mainstay of Peter Beardsley's table-topping under-21 side without featuring in the first team.

Ferguson, 23, has been sidelined this campaign thus far after suffering a knee injury in the early part of the season.

The 17-times capped Northern Ireland international, who has 32 first-team games for Newcastle under his belt, spent the majority of last season on loan at Birmingham City.

Nineteen-year-old Mbabu is a Switzerland under-19 international who has yet to make the breakthrough to first team football but has impressed with a number of confident defensive displays at second-string level.

Streete made his Football League debut with Port Vale earlier this season. The 20-year-old centre half has been on the bench for the first team this term but has yet to make his senior bow for United.

Vuckic is a 22-year-old Slovenian with one full international cap, which came against Scotland in 2012, to his name.

He has enjoyed previous loan spells at Cardiff City and Rotherham United and has made 32 first team appearances for the Magpies, scoring once, since making his debut back in August 2009.
