Ibrox move gives Sheyi Ojo the chance to resurrect a stuttering career
Sheyi Ojo has joined Rangers on loan to play regular first-team football – and to help the Ibrox based side achieve their aims this season.
So far, he has scored three goals and provided one assist in all competitions – and he is starting to build up a good rapport with a lot of Gers fans.
After his latest performance against Hibernian – Ojo was praised very heavily on social media by many Rangers fans.
This move was exactly what the 22-year-old needed – after a succession of poor loan spells in the last few years.
The most recent loan move was a dreadful spell in France for Stade Reims – where Ojo made just 15 league appearances and did not score or assist a single goal.
At 22 this feels like Ojo’s last chance to make an impression on Jurgen Klopp – and so the fantastic start he has had might have caught the German’s attention.
Steven Gerrard has quite a few wingers to choose from – but he needs one of them to step up and replace Ryan Kent.
Ojo has certainly made a good start in his bid to fill Kent’s role in Gerrard’s side.
Once seen as one of the brightest young talents in England, Ojo’s career has stagnated somewhat – and this move to the SPFL could be precisely what he needs to get back on track.
After all, he has made 13 senior appearances for Liverpool – so there is obviously some talent there, just for one reason or another it has not manifested itself into consistent performances.
Although it is still only August Ojo has made a positive start to life in Scotland – and if he can continue that for the whole season then maybe he can resurrect his career.
