Rangers have confirmed Arsenal midfielder Gedion Zelalem will remain on loan at the club until the end of the season.

The 18-year-old United States international joined Rangers in August initially on a loan deal until January, but that has now been extended after successful negotiations with Arsenal.

Zelalem has featured 15 times for Mark Warburton's side this season, most recently as a second-half substitute in the 6-0 victory over Dumbarton last Saturday, helping the club to first place in the Scottish Championship.
