Liverpool loanee Ovie Ejaria has asked Dominic Solanke to follow in his footsteps and join Rangers Football Club on loan.

Rangers manager Steven Gerrard has been linked with a loan for the England U-21 international as Liverpool consider whether to allow him to leave on a temporary basis.

Crystal Palace are among the Premier League clubs keen on the Solanke but, speaking after Rangers’ 3-0 win over Livingston on Saturday, Ejaria has little doubt the former Chelsea youngster would make a hugely positive impact if he was to move to the Ibrox for the second half of the campaign.

The 21-year-old midfielder said, according to Daily Mail:

“Rangers are a very good club and I’ve enjoyed my time here so far and if I was to speak to Dom about it, I would only have good things to say about Rangers.”

“Dom is a very good player. I’ve known him for a very long time. He’s another goalscorer. He scores a lot of goals, so if he was to come to Rangers in January, it would be a very good addition to the squad.”

Alfredo Morelos came off the bench to score his 16th goal of the current campaign against Livingston.

While lauding the Colombia international Ejaria believes securing a deal for Solanke would create depth in attack that could see the Gers challenge for the Scottish league.

“Yes, definitely,” he added.

“It would also increase the strength in depth in the squad and he would be a very good addition. And don’t forget Kyle Lafferty, who is another top striker.”

“Alfredo is a top player. He scores goals and helps the team a lot. You saw the difference he made when he came on against Livingston.”
