He joins the Gers from French top-flight Angers on a season-long loan, subject to worldwide clearance.

The deal, subject to worldwide clearance, makes the Mali global Steven Gerrard's eighth signing for the Gers, ahead of his first managerial stint.

The African joined Angers in 2015 from fellow French outfit Bastia and has made 48 appearances for the club.

"Rangers can today [Tuesday] announce the signing of Lassana Coulibaly on a season-long loan from French side Angers, subject to worldwide clearance", read a statement on club website.

"The Mali worldwide arrives in Glasgow as a talented prospect who has been a mainstay in Ligue 1 for the past three seasons despite his young age".

"It is hard to say whether it will be done before the first leg [of Europa League qualifying on Thursday], but we will be doing more business". Even if the plan was to stay at Roma I couldn't turn him down.

He smiled: "I don't like to say anything about myself but I am a hardworking player who always wants to help the team".

Coulibaly follows veteran goalkeeper Allan McGregor, full-back Jon Flanagan, centre-backs Connor Goldson and Nikola Katic, midfielders Scott Arfield and Ovie Ejaria, and winger Jamie Murphy - on a permanent deal after a successful loan spell - in joining Rangers.

"Rangers is a good team, I'd heard the name before Gerrard came in here".
