Rangers loanee Sean Goss says his focus lies with the Scottish Premiership side and he has not thought about his longer-term future
Rangers loanee Sean Goss says he has not thought about his future beyond the end of the season, despite talk of a longer-term move.
Graeme Murty revealed the 22-year-old, who has enjoyed a successful start to his stay in Scotland, was one of his targets for a permanent move in the summer – a comment which angered QPR boss Ian Holloway.
Goss, who joined the Ibrox club in January, has contributed two goals in his opening eight appearances for Rangers and is enjoying the opportunity to impress with regular game time – something he wasn’t seeing at the Championship club.
“I have not really thought about it [my future] to be fair,” Goss told Sky Sports News.
“When I was at QPR I was told I wouldn’t fit into the way the manager wanted to set up the midfield and the way we were playing at the time.
“I am just focusing on my time at Rangers just now and I am loving my time here – enjoying the opportunity and the faith being shown in me.”

QPR boss Holloway, who brought the player to Loftus Road, was disappointed with Murty’s comments about his player and indicated he had every intention to keep hold of Goss, once his loan came to an end.
“I am not really thinking about that. I am just [focused] on playing my football here. I am focusing all my game up here at the moment,” Goss said, when pressed on whether he was confident of breaking into QPR’s first-team plans this summer.
“I will think about [the decision in the summer] when it gets to that.”
Goss, who spent time in the Manchester United academy and their first-team squad without making an appearance, also spoke about the emergence of Scott McTominay at Old Trafford in recent weeks.
Both players played alongside each other for the Old Trafford club and Goss is impressed by McTominay’s displays, which have created a tug-of-war battle for his international services between England and Scotland.
Goss said: “I played with Scott all the way through when I was at United. It is a massive decision for him and I am sure he will take his time and make sure he is 100 per cent on his decision.
“He was always going to be a late developer. He was quite small when we first joined. He always needed to grow into his body. Now he is showing what he is capable of. He is a big lad – he is strong and gets about the pitch really well.
“He is saying everything with his performances and he is keeping his place in the side and I think he will be looking to do that.”
