A Newcastle United player sparked rumours of a move to Ibrox, after posting a photo of himself wearing a Rangers shirt.

Mo Sangare, a 19-year-old midfielder who made 14 appearances for the Magpies’ Under-23 side last season, added the “selfie” to his Instagram story.

In the picture, the Liberian starlet is wearing a Rangers training top and captioned the image “ready for pre-season”.

Despite being tipped to break into the first team last season, Sangare failed to get any gametime for Rafa Benitez’s first team, which fuelled talk of a move to Scotland.

Rangers famously took the “Newcastle Five” on loan in January 2015 as Gael Bigirimana, Shane Ferguson, Kevin Mbabu, Remie Streete and Haris Vuckic all signed short-term deals.

But Sangare moved to quash any speculation, insisting that the shirt was for his little brother, adding: “Nothing has changed.”

Gers boss Steven Gerrard is looking to strengthen his side, and could secure the signing of Jon Flanagan this week.
