Rangers Loanee Sam Lammers Expresses Desire to Stay at Utrecht

Rangers loanee Sam Lammers hinted at his desire to extend his stay at Utrecht, expressing his enjoyment of scoring in front of their passionate fans.

Lammers, who was brought to Ibrox last summer by Michael Beale, failed to make a significant impact during his time at Rangers, managing only two goals before being loaned out to the Eredivisie under the tenure of new manager Philippe Clement. Since his return to the Dutch league, the 26-year-old forward has found a resurgence in form, netting three crucial goals as Utrecht fights to climb the table and avoid relegation.

His latest goal came in Utrecht’s 1-0 victory over NEC on Sunday, a result that has put the club in a favorable position for survival and has manager Ron Jans setting his sights higher. Despite his contribution to the win, Lammers was candid about his performance, acknowledging that he could have capitalized on more opportunities. However, he expressed his delight at playing in front of the fervent Bunnikside supporters, describing the experience as “addictive.”

“It is the second goal that I have been able to score for the Bunnikside, so that is enjoyable,” Lammers stated after the match. “But I should perhaps have scored two more. But scoring for the Bunnikside is addictive. We are winning now, so I take it for granted. I am happy with the victory, but I still think about those missed opportunities.”

Despite Lammers’ positive sentiments towards Utrecht, securing his permanent transfer could prove challenging for the club. The loan agreement does not include an option to buy or a predetermined fee, potentially complicating negotiations with Rangers.
