Rotherham United manager Paul Warne admits Rangers could recall Jake Hastie
Rangers could recall Jake Hastie in January, Rotherham United manager Paul Warne has warned.
The Daily Record reports that Warne is worried about the futures of loan trio Hastie, Dan Barlaser and Carlton Morris. He believes they could all be heading back to their parent clubs in January unless their situation changes in December.
Hastie has shown glimpses of his talent down in England. The 21-year-old, who joined Rangers from Motherwell last summer, has scored three times in 11 games. But he has played in just three of the last eight league games.
Rotherham are pushing for promotion in League One – England’s third-tier. Warne obviously has a settled team who are in-form. Hastie is not fitting into the plans at the moment and he thinks Rangers could call him back.
Warne on Hastie
Speaking on the future of Hastie and the other two loanees, Warne said (via The Daily Record): “They’ve all added something at different times to our team. It wouldn’t surprise me that if Dan, Jake or Carlton don’t play enough games in December their parent clubs would want to move them. I understand that.”
Rangers need Hastie to be playing regular football at this stage of his career. The whole point of sending the Scotland U21 starlet on loan was to gain some valuable experience.
Steven Gerrard needs to carefully assess his options and make a careful decision. It all depends on whether Hastie can get back into the side this month.
