READ | We think he can excite the crowd - Warne

2 September 2019

Having drafted in Chiedozie Ogbene just a few days ago, Paul Warne added further attacking firepower to his Millers squad on Monday afternoon as Jake Hastie joined on loan from Rangers.

The 20-year-old winger made the Deadline Day move south of the border, and the manager believes that he is a player that can cause real problems for defenders in Sky Bet League One.

"Jake is a tenacious player with pace to burn and I am sure that he will be another who can excite the crowd," Warne said.

"He can play anywhere across the front three and out wide, giving us another option on the wing following the arrival of Chieo, while we have Julien Lamy coming back from injury now as well.

"He shares our values in that he wants to be the best he can be and I am sure with his willingness to learn, we can help him in the next stage of his development."

Warne also revealed that their were other potential suitors lining up for the signature of the Motherwell youth product, and given that fact, the manager was ecstatic to get his man. 

With the winger now a Rotherham United player until the conclusion of the 2019/20 campaign, Warne is hoping that the move can be worthwile for all involved. 

He said: "We’re delighted to add Jake to the group and he will bring even more competition in attacking areas.

"The fact that he chose us despite other interest was particularly pleasing and he joins us with a real willingness to learn and improve, which is of course hugely important to me and my staff.

"I’d like to say a huge thanks to Rangers for their part in allowing him to join us and hopefully if he can come here and flourish it will be a move that is beneficial to all parties."
