Former Man Utd midfielder Dion McGhee rejects Rangers for Braga move

Former Manchester United midfielder Dion McGhee has rejected Scottish Premiership side Rangers in favour of a move to Braga. 

McGhee spent 14 years on the books at Old Trafford, but was released by the Premier League giants last summer. 

Since then the midfielder spent time on trial at Newcastle United, before reportedly being tracked by a number of clubs, including Derby County, Antwerp and Rangers, according to the Sun

However, McGhee has now opted for the road less travelled by young British players and will now call Braga home. 

The 20-year-old midfielder has signed a deal with the Portuguese club until the end of the season, with an option to extend it.

  • “I play in the middle but I adapt well to different positions,” the young player told Braga’s club website. “I have eyes for goal and I also like to watch my teammates.”

    “I spent many years at Manchester United, a club where I learned a lot and developed as a player and as a person. Now I want to show all of this here at SC Braga.

    “The facilities are fantastic and the people are very friendly. I’m really enjoying it. I came here because it is a big club, with a lot of history. Also because Portugal is a great place to live.

    “I want to stay calm, play a lot of games, not suffer injuries and give everything to reach the main team. I want to have the opportunity to play against these wonderful fans.”
