Reports began this morning of a mass exodus of loan players from Mike Ashley’s Newcastle United to…Mike Ashley’s Rangers.

Late this afternoon Sky Sports reported that their Newcastle sources told them that Rangers had a choice of 4 or 5 players from a list of 6.

The six they named were Curtis Good, Facundo Ferreyra, Kevin Mbabu, Gael Bigirimaina, Haris Vuckic and Remie Streete.

Now it has been confirmed that the last four named will be heading up to Glasgow on loan but sadly we aren’t going to see the slightly mad case of Chucky Ferreyra being one of them after six months of inaction at Newcastle.

Instead the fifth player to go on loan is forgotten man Shane Ferguson who hasn’t even had a squad number this season and so hasn’t even been eligible to play in any Premier League matches.
