Mohamed Diomande responds to Rangers transfer fee following his inclusion among the top 15 priciest signings.

Mohamed Diomande acknowledges his eagerness to repay Philippe Clement after Rangers committed significant funds for his acquisition. The 22-year-old midfielder, who arrived on loan from Danish side FC Nordsjaelland last month, will see Gers pay £4.5 million to secure his permanent transfer in the summer. This substantial investment elevates the Ivory Coast Under-23 cap into the Ibrox club’s top 15 most costly signings. Nonetheless, Diomande is determined to vindicate the Light Blues’ trust in him.

He stated, “Yes, it’s a considerable investment. However, my focus is on personal development and aiding the team in realizing its objectives here. I don’t perceive this as overwhelming pressure. I was aware of the stature and ambition of this club. The fans’ support has been phenomenal, both during my debut and over the weekend. Their warmth makes me feel embraced. I aspire to reciprocate their support.”

Diomande marked his full debut in Saturday night’s 2-0 victory against Ayr United as Rangers advance to a Scottish Cup quarter-final clash with Hibs at Easter Road. Despite a three-month competitive start hiatus, the January recruit aims to solidify his position in the starting lineup.
