Sam Lammers Reflects on Future as Loan Spell at Utrecht Nears End

Rangers loanee Sam Lammers expressed uncertainty about his future as he nears the end of his loan spell at Utrecht and prepares to return to Ibrox. The striker, who recently scored his first goal for Utrecht, conveyed his delight at returning to the Eredivisie following a challenging six months with Rangers.

Lammers admitted to his surprise when Rangers indicated he could go out on loan, especially after a period of consistent playing time. He had originally signed a four-year contract in Scotland with the intention of a long-term stay.

Reflecting on the unexpected turn of events, Lammers stated, “We have not looked beyond this second half of the season; we will see what happens next after the season has ended. But during the period that I am here, I want to have an impact.”

Elaborating on his decision to join Utrecht, Lammers highlighted the immediate and decisive interest shown by the club. Positive conversations with Jordy Zuidam, the technical director, and manager Ron Jans, coupled with the overall confidence he felt within the club, influenced his decision.

Lammers explained, “They showed they wanted me, and the positive conversations with Jordy Zuidam, the technical director, and the manager, Ron Jans, along with the confidence I felt the whole club had, persuaded me to join them.”

He also emphasized that Utrecht shared his ambition of playing every week, contributing to the club’s success, and reaching European football. Lammers expressed his eagerness to showcase what he has learned in recent years, praising the “huge amount of quality” within the Utrecht team.
