New arrival at Glasgow Rangers of Scotland, Sheyi Ojo has declared that he wants to make the best of his loan spell with The Gers in order to set himself up for a rosy future at his parent club, Liverpool of England, megasportsarena.com reports.
The 21-year-old Ojo is the latest lad from Liverpool to try out at Ibrox, but where fellow-Nigerian-born lad, Ovie Ejaria failed top shine, he says joining Rangers on loan will help him prove he is good enough to be part of Jurgen Klopp’s side at Anfield in the future.
Ojo, who spent last season out on loan with Stade Reims of France, before signing a new five-year-deal with The Reds, for which he has made 13 first-team appearances but has been loaned on five previous occasions, believes gaining experience elsewhere will benefit his game.
In the coming season, Ojo will play under Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard who is preparing for his second season in charge at Ibrox, and the winger admits thew icon’s presence in Glasgow was the key reason he decided to join Rangers on loan.
Gerrard has brought in several new signings, with Ojo his fifth addition this transfer window, and the youngster wants to compliment the manager, who had quite a successful first campaign, guiding his side to a second-place finish in the Scottish Premiership behind local rivals, Celtic.
Ojo said: “At Liverpool you see the gaffer Jurgen Klopp, he’s a similar sort of character and you have to push yourself every day in training.
“I want to do that anyway for my career. I know what I’m capable of, so I think every day is going to be a really exciting challenge for me this season with the gaffer here just to push myself and show what I can do.
“Playing with the likes of Hendo, obviously Mo Salah in my position, Sadio Mane the same, they’re top, world class players and Liverpool have proven that this season with the Champions League.
“I think it’s kind of like the top of the elite level, at the moment, in terms of world football.
“To be in contention, you have to go out and have a good season. You have to prove to the manager and prove to yourself that you can do it.”
