Clinton Nsiala reveals Rangers transfer selling point and why he will stay 'calm and humble'

Clinton Nsiala has detailed the key Philippe Clement trait that was a big factor in him deciding to sign for Rangers.

The Belgian boss has been going through a summer rebuild with the former AC Milan one of five new faces in the building so far with many more expected to follow. Big names left in the summer like John Lundstram, Ryan Jack and Borna Barisic with others including Connor Goldson and James Tavernier also linked with the exit door during this window.

Nsiala has revealed his huge sense of pride in joining a club with 'lots of titles and lots of prestige' while he can't wait for his first experience in front of the fans. Speaking to Rangers TV, he said: “First of all, there’s a huge sense of pride .This club is legendary, with lots of titles and lots of prestige, including in Europe. I’m honestly very honoured to sign for this club. I know it’s a club that the fans are very committed to. They put so much heart in getting behind the team in every competition. I feel a big sense of responsibility, and lots of anticipation and excitement about experiencing the atmosphere too.

“I know he [the manager] coached at Monaco, as well as in the Belgian league. He always puts a lot of faith in young players. As a young player, that was a big factor for me in my decision to come to Glasgow.

"It helps to have a coach like Philippe Clement. He gives a lot of support to young players, and that doesn’t make it feel like a big step. Having a coach like that will help me progress, so I’m not focused on the step up from academy to senior level.”

Nsiala believes his experiences at Serie A giants AC Milan has given him the perfect lesson on the demands expected at the top level. The defender is really excited to get started in his new environment at Rangers but admits he is staying calm and humble as his newest chapter begins.

He added: “I had some unforgettable experiences [at AC Milan], particularly the first time I was in a matchday squad was in the Champions League against Newcastle. Those are moments I’ll never forget. I was in the squad for Europa League and Serie A games too.

“Being up close to players like that every day in training taught me about the demands expected at that level. Technically, everyone is at more or less the same level. But what makes the difference is the demands you place on yourself, whether that’s on an individual or a team level.

“Being here just now makes me so excited. Excited, but also calm and always humble. But I’m really excited to get to know the staff, the atmosphere, the players, and the fans too. I am so excited all round, but I’m staying calm and humble too.”
