SEAN GOSS admits it was a “no-brainer” for him to join Rangers until the end of the season from Queens Park Rangers.
The 22 year-old came through the ranks at Manchester United before switching to West London last January, and has now moved north on-loan to assist Graeme Murty’s Light Blues.
Goss admits he was keen to test himself again at a big club, and, when the opportunity to come to Glasgow arose, he jumped at it.
“For me it’s a no-brainer really,” he told RangersTV. “Rangers is a massive football club with a massive fanbase as well, and being out there seeing the stadium was unbelievable.
“So for me it was a no-brainer and I couldn’t wait to get here.
“I know it is a tough league and there is a lot expected of the Rangers players. That is why I’m here – I want to challenge myself at a big club and I can’t wait to get going.
“It’s been frustrating for me personally the last year or so with game time, but I’m hoping to come here and do well for this club.
“[The experience of playing for Manchester United] will help. They are both massive clubs with a lot of fans all over the world. I am hoping to bring that experience with me.”
Goss’ knowledge of Rangers has been somewhat boosted by current Ibrox midfielder Jordan Thompson.
The duo lived together when in the Manchester United youth set-up, and, prior to putting pen to paper, Goss spoke again with his former teammate.
He added: “I’ve watched quite a few of the games, and I was woken up every morning by a massive Rangers fan in Jordan Thompson.
“I have spoken to him quite a bit and he couldn’t say enough about the club.”
Goss, first and foremost, is more of a holding midfielder, but that he revealed that won’t prevent him from having an eye for goal.
He continued: “I’m a defensive midfielder who likes to get on the ball from the back four and spread passes around. I also like to think I have goals in my game, so I will be trying to get forward as much as I can as well.
“I’d like to start the play off from the defence, get on the ball as much as I can and dictate the play. I also have that nasty side to me as well, and will get stuck in.”
Goss will now join with his teammates when they head to the Florida Cup this weekend, and he believes that will be the perfect opportunity for him to integrate with his new squad.
He said: “I can’t wait and I think that will be a great thing for me to meet all the boys. It is a great time to go away and get to know them, and obviously there are a couple of games over there as well, so I would like to impress in them.
“I’m really looking forward to living here too. I’ve heard it’s a lively city, and I look forward to settling in. But firstly, I look forward to going away with the boys to Florida, have a good week over there and then come back to the reality of it and get stuck into all of the games.”
