What rival manager told Rangers summer signing Declan John after deal was struck

Rangers were one of the busiest Scottish Premiership clubs during the summer transfer window, bringing in 11 players in both permanent and temporary deals as manager Pedro Caixinha embarked on a massive squad rebuilding.

Amongst the recruited players was Cardiff City left-back Declan John, who was snapped up on a season-long loan during the closing stages of the market.

The Wales international is expected to make the move permanent should he impress Caixinha well enough, and he’s expected to provide cover and competition for captain skipper Lee Wallace.

John’s versatility, as he can also slot in on the left of midfield means he could also be an option on the left wing.

Considered surplus to requirements at Cardiff having featured in the starting XI just once since October when manager Neil Warnock took charge, the 22-year-old has a lot to prove at Ibrox.

It appears his former boss has given him the right advice to enable him to do just that, though.

John was told to “enjoy it” by Warnock, referring to his new adventure at Rangers.

The young fullback is also hoping to immediately get involved in action when Gers host Dundee on Saturday, as the league resumes from the international break with the 5th round of the league fixtures.

John, who has made 52 appearances for Cardiff since breaking into the first-team in 2012 is running down the last year on his current contract with the Championship Welsh side, and would hope to make it count by proving his worth at Rangers.
