‘Should’ve been used in the team’: Some Rangers fans react as 21yo with ‘huge future’ leaves on loan

A number of Glasgow Rangers fans have taken to Twitter to discuss Jake Hastie’s latest loan move away from Ibrox.

The 21-year-old joined Rangers from Motherwell last summer, the Ibrox club reportedly paying £350,000 in compensation for his services.

Steven Gerrard tipped Hastie – contracted until 2023 – for success, telling the Daily Record in June last year that he was “delighted to have him, he’s got a huge future”.

However, Hastie has found opportunities somewhat limited under Gerrard and spent the first half of last season on loan at English side Rotherham United.

To date, he has made just two appearances for Rangers, against St Joseph’s in the Europa League qualifiers and against East Fife in the League Cup.

Hastie has now returned to Motherwell on a season-long loan, where he will be looking to continue building Premiership experience whilst on the Gers’ books.

He will also have the opportunity to taste Europa League action, with Stephen Robinson’s side set to take their place in the qualifiers.

Furthermore, Rangers have a recall option in January 2021.


Reaction amongst the Ibrox fanbase was somewhat mixed, with some Bears wanting Hastie to have featured for their side this season.

Others wished him well, and others wondered why Gerrard had bought him in the first place.

Below is some of the social media reaction:
