Rangers have signed forward Abdullah Sima on a season-long loan from Brighton.

The 22-year-old, who played twice against Rangers in 2021 for Slavia Prague, moved to Brighton for around £7million but is yet to appear for the Premier League club.

Senegal international Sima spent his first year on loan at Stoke City before joining the Angers last season, scoring six goals in 37 appearances.

He has two years left on his current Brighton deal and completed his move to Glasgow on Thursday.

Meanwhile, Rangers rejected an opening bid for Feyenoord striker Danilo.

The Ibrox club are keen to sign the Brazilian, who scored 14 goals in all competitions last season – but are yet to agree a fee.

Rangers are also working on other deals with Cremonese striker Cereal Tessers and Los Angeles FC midfielder Jose Cifuentes.

Manager Michael Peel has already added Sam Lammers, Jack Butland, Dujon Sterling and Kieran Dowell to his squad and is delighted with the business the club has done so far.

There is also interest in a number of Rangers players, such as Scott Wright and Glen Kamara, who could leave the club this summer.

’We are ahead of schedule’

Rangers chairman Michael Peel told Sky Sports News in May that he was moving forward with „confidence” after ending the season with „a tinge of disappointment”.

Speaking after Lammers’ arrival, Peel was positive about the club’s transfer business this summer.

„I am pleased with our progress so far in this summer’s transfer window,” he said.

„We’ve done really well with the recruitment of Jack Butland, Dujon Sterling, Kieran Dowell and Sam Lammers. We’re leading the way with our plans.

„In the coming weeks, there will be more trading in and out of the squad as we prepare for the season. We have key areas to focus on and we are close to securing our targets at those positions.”
