‘Hard to reject Gerrard, but…’

Umar Sadiq admits ‘few players of my age will say no to working’ with Rangers boss Steven Gerrard but insists ‘I’m happy at Roma’.

Sadiq is a reported target for Rangers, who recently appointed Gerrard as their new Coach, but while the young striker was enamoured by the prospect of working under the former Liverpool midfielder, he made it clear his preference was carving out a first-team place at Roma.

”Few players of my age will say ‘no’ to working with Gerrard,” the former NAC Breda loanee told Owngoalnigeria.com.

“Rangers are also a traditional team but for the moment I’m happy at Roma and hope to be a part of the team next season.

“For now, that is my plan. Maybe in the future I will get to work with Gerrard.”
