JAKE HASTIE has returned to Rangers following an unsuccessful loan stint across Glasgow at Partick Thistle.

The 22-year-old made six appearances for the Scottish Championship club - all via the substitute's bench - and played a total of 114 minutes for the Jags.

Hastie's time at Firhill was disrupted by injury and the winger leaves without having made a significant impression on Ian McCall's starting XI.

"After speaking to Jake we came to the decision that it was best for him to go back to Rangers," McCall told the club's website.

"He’s not had the game time that he or I would have liked for him during his time at Firhill which is unfortunate because I do think he’s a player with a lot quality.

"Unfortunately, the team has been in good form which has meant he’s had to come off the bench and it’s always difficult to make an impact that way.

"Like I said, he’s a player with a plenty of quality and ability who I’m sure still has a great future in the game and we wish him all the best for that future."

The Motherwell academy graduate is contracted to Rangers until summer 2024 and has made a solitary first-team appearance since arriving from Fir Park in a £350,000 deal in 2020.
