Rangers transfers: Oscar Cortés returns to Rangers for second loan from Lens | football news

Oscar Cortés has rejoined Rangers for a second loan from Lens, with the Scottish Premiership club set to purchase the winger next summer.

The 20-year-old Colombian will then sign a four-year contract with the Ibrox club until 2029.

Cortes initially joined Rangers on loan in January, making seven appearances and scoring once before a muscle injury ruled him out for the rest of the season.

On his new contract, the winger said: “I’m delighted to be able to stay at Rangers.

“It was an honor and privilege for me to join the club in January and I was enjoying football under the coach and playing alongside my teammates.

“Unfortunately, the injury ended my season early, but I’ve been working hard and I’m excited to help the team and get back to playing in front of such wonderful fans soon.”

Manager Philippe Clement added: “I’m very happy to have Oscar back.

“He was a great asset to the team when he arrived at the club and showed the qualities that attracted him to us.

“Oscar suffered a setback but has worked tirelessly during his recovery and I’m sure all fans are looking forward to seeing him again next season.”

He is Rangers’ second summer signing after Brazilian defender Jefte arrived on a four-year deal from Fluminense, having spent last season on loan with Cypriot First Division champions APOEL.
