Rangers youngster Serge Atakayi has left Ibrox, heading off to Finland on loan until the end of the season, as reported by The Scottish Sun.

The 20-year-old has joined top-flight outfit SJK Seinajoki in an attempt to get the senior football he needs to make the next step in his development as an attacker.

The deal is something of a surprise considering you don’t often seen loans happen between domestic transfer windows but the league over there is only kicking off this weekend.

The Finnish U19 international will be in familiar surroundings as he learns his trade and already has one start to his name, playing in today’s 2-0 win over Helsinki IFK.

He made his senior debut for Rangers back in November, coming off the bench in a 7-1 thrashing against Motherwell and catching the eyes of supporters, many of whom reckon he has a part to play in Steven Gerrard’s squad moving forward.

His current contract at Ibrox doesn’t expire until 2020 so he still has time to prove to the manager he can be worthy of a squad place.

Fans are expecting big things and hope the loan move will give him the confidence to make a first-team push next term, taking to Twitter to share their thoughts on the deal…
