SHEYI OJO hopes a loan switch to Rangers will help bring out the best in him once again as he looks to thrive under the pressure at Ibrox this season.

The winger has become the fifth signing of the summer for boss Steven Gerrard after putting pen-to-paper on a move from Liverpool on Tuesday.

Ojo follows Jordan Jones, Jake Hastie, Steven Davis and Greg Stewart in joining the Light Blues.

And the 21-year-old, who has had loan spells with Wigan Athletic, Wolverhampton Wanderers and Fulham and French side Reims in recent years, is eager to prove his worth in the coming months.

Ojo said: “I am really excited with my first impressions around the training ground and seeing all the players. I feel really settled in and I am ready to go.

“The last 18 months, two years, I have not really had that consistent opportunity of football and when I heard Rangers were involved, I spoke to my representation, to the gaffer, Steven Gerrard, and I spoke to Liverpool as well. I think all the parties believed that this was the right destination for me and for my career this season.

“[The manager] just wants me to be myself. When I am playing myself, playing consistently and injury free, then everything goes well. I haven’t had that consistency, so with Rangers this season it is about playing how I have always played, to play freely and just enjoy my football.

“I spoke to Andy Firth and Ovie (Ejaria) was here last year as well and I spoke to him. I know a few other players that play in this league as well. So with all of the advice that I have got, it was an easy decision.

“There were other clubs that I could have gone to but I felt this was the right decision for me.”

The capture of Ojo is another boost for Gerrard as he continues his preparations for the upcoming Europa League qualifiers and another crack at the Premiership.

The Englishman has made 13 appearances for Liverpool after rising through the Anfield ranks.

Ojo told RangersTV: “I have had experience of [European football] with Liverpool, but to actually play in it and be a hopefully big part of it, it will be a really good experience. It is one that I am looking forward to.

“I spoke to Andy before the Old Firm game that Rangers won 2-0 and watching the atmosphere around the stadium and the fans, it was really exciting.

“It is something I am looking forward to being a part of.

“I am with Liverpool and if you play for those big clubs you have to deal with the pressure.

“With what I want to achieve in my career, I have got to be able to deal with that. I think it is going to be a good challenge.”
