'I told my agent we need to make this happen' - Diomande on Rangers move

Mohamed Diomande says he was desperate to make a move to Ibrox happen once he heard of interest from Rangers.

The 22-year-old joined Philippe Clement's side from Danish champions Nordsjaelland in January, but is yet to make an appearance.

When he does take the field, the midfielder hopes to make an impact for his new club and is eyeing "a lot" trophies during his time in Scotland.

“I cannot wait to get started," Diomande told club media. "The lads have already done a good job and I am just looking forward to doing something more for them and for the fans. The welcome they gave me was amazing and brilliant and I feel like I am ready to give something back to them.

“I remember when I came into the dressing room I was shy, but then I said hello to everybody and they were really nice to me so I am happy to be around them, spend some time with them and I cannot wait to play with them soon.

“I have had a lot of help from everybody at the club, they are helping me settle so it is going good at the moment.

"When I first heard Rangers were interested, I was like 'wow', I know it is a big club and I have heard of it since I was a little kid.

"I told my agent we need to make it happen because I have heard a lot about the club. It is a really ambitious club, so I want to contribute and win some things as a football player.

“When I spoke to the manager, he knew why he wanted me, so I knew it was the right place to be because there are a lot of good young players here. There are also a lot of experienced players, so it is a good environment for me to continue my career and hopefully win a lot of trophies with the team.”
