Newcastle boss Carver happy with quintet moving to Rangers

Newcastle United boss John Carver has explained sending five young players on-loan to Rangers.

Remie Streete, Kevin Mbabu, Gael Bigirimana, Haris Vuckic and Shane Ferguson have all signed on at Rangers until the end of the season.

"They need to play," said Carver. "They have gone past under-21 football, the Under-21s is for good young players who are 16, 17 or 18 and a chance to develop.

"The guys who have gone up there and past that are ready for senior football.

"It's a great situation for both parties.

"First of all they are getting some good players.

"Secondly we are getting our young players some experience playing in front of 35,000 to 40,000 every other week, under pressure because we know how big that club is - it's a worldwide club."
