Partick Thistle have signed Rangers winger Jake Hastie on an initial six-month loan deal from the Ibrox club.

Thistle manager Ian McCall said a fortnight ago that he had ‘no idea’ where the rumour linking him with the Rangers talent came from. But now he has landed his second Ibrox loanee after signing defender Lewis Mayo earlier this summer. The 22-year-old winger could make his Scottish Championship debut for ‘the Jags’ this weekend v Arbroath.

Hastie spent last season on-loan at Motherwell and first joined Rangers in 2019 after form at the Premiership club.

McCall said: “Firstly, Rangers have been fantastic with us in allowing us to take Jake on loan. My job now is to give him the confidence to go out and show everyone the player he can be, the one who lit up the Scottish Premiership and scored goals at that level.

RONALDO NEEDS TO STOP WHINING.

“Jake gives us another option of serious pace in the team from middle to front, along with Scott Tiffoney. I simply want Jake to go out and enjoy playing football with Partick Thistle – with one caveat, that he’ll need to work hard to get into this team.”
