Trio of January signings impress in Scottish Cup victory

Trio of January signings impress in Scottish Cup victory

As Rangers fans reflected on a routine Scottish Cup victory over Ayr United, Oscar Cortes stood out the most.

The young Colombian winger, 20, appears to be a direct option who isn’t afraid to take a shot on goal,

as the RC Lens loanee also set up Borna Barisic for the opener and was awarded Player of the Match.

Rangers have the option to buy on the loan agreement –

RC Lens signed the winger from Millionarios for a reported €4.5 million (£3.8 million) in the summer

– and supporters are already debating whether it is worth activating.

Mohamed Diomande, who hasn’t played since November, may need more time to adjust, but even brief glimpses show that the Ivorian is talented.

The midfielder, who completed a £4.3 million loan-to-buy agreement with FC Nordsjaelland in the winter,

is anticipated to do well in the game.

When you combine this with Fabio Silva’s improving form, who scored his second goal for the Bears in the win, the transfer window appears to have been a very effective one.

Now let’s see if Philippe Clement’s prediction comes true.

“The team performed a good job. We opened the game nicely, with a solid tempo and actions.

After three minutes, we could have scored two goals, but football also requires a little luck. That was not on our side today in terms of finishing,

and all credit goes to our opponents for doing their utmost to stop the goals,

including saves on the goal line in the second half. It was a game in which we had control for 90 minutes.

The team went ahead to score goals, and we didn’t give away much.

I believe in one shot on target, therefore keeping a clean sheet is equally vital. And we might offer minutes to men who are.
