I've kept you waiting again, I apologise. But like a fine wine the Loan report only gets better the longer you leave it.

11 reds were in action this weekend with only two missing out through injury. A further 3 were not involved despite being fit for selection.

Lets start with the bad.

Marko Grujic and Connor Randall continue their recoveries from injuries and therefore were not fit for selection.

Shamal George was again an unused sub for Tranmere, he must have his own personal spot on the bench by now.

Arroyo was not selected for Gents match day squad although it turned out to be a blessing in disguise and Ben Woodburn now can't even make the bench for Sheffield United, a loan move that once looked so promising is now turning into a bit of a disaster.

Back to Gent and the fortunes of Awoniyi who did make the match day squad.
Awoniyi started up top as Gent took on league leaders Genk. It was a performance to forget as the hosts lost 5-1! Awoniyi being subbed after 55 minutes. Things are not quite clicking for the young man yet this season.

After staring for Rangers in their Mid Week Europa League victory Ryan Kent continued his good form with a MOTM display as Rangers took on the leaders of the SPL Hearts.
Rangers took an early lead and dominated throughout eventually winning the match 3-1.
Ryan Kent capped his performance with a goal finishing off a well worked free kick routine.
Ejaria also featured in both Rangers victories dominating the midfield. He played the full 90 in the Europa but was subbed after 70 at the weekend.

Karius had a week to forget as he made another high profile error on the European stage.
A cross from the right that should of been a routine catch slipped through his fingers and into the back of the net. Besiktas went on to lose the game 2-0.
At the weekend he was better but it was anxious display as Besiktas drew 2-2 with Konyaspor.

Allan made his second start for Eintracht at the weekend but it was not as memorable as his first.
Struggling to make an impact on the game and on a booking Allan was hooked at half time in a tactically switch. Eintracht went on to beat Hoffenheim 2-1.

Ojo currently finds himself in the role of impact sub and that continued this weekend. Ojo came on late in the game as Reims drew 0-0 with Nimes on Sunday.

Danny Ings didn't have the greatest game as Southampton lost 3-0 to Chelsea at the weekend. It was a lively performance from the Liverpool loanee but he should of had a brace missing two easy chances throughout the 90 minutes. The first came at 0-0 somehow spooning the ball over the bar from 4 yards!
Danny Ings is nothing if not resilient and I am sure he will be back to best in no time.

Harry Wilson came off the bench as Derby drew 1-1 with QPR on Saturday.

Adam Bogdan continues to impress in Scotland as he kept his fourth successive clean sheet for Hibs as they beat Hamilton 6-0 on Sunday, albeit he had very little to do.

Doncaster lost 4-0 to Fleetwood at the weekend despite the best efforts of Herbie Kane.
Kane picked up the Doncaster fans MOTM award for his efforts.

Corey Whelan played the full 90 as Crewe lost 1-0 to League leaders Lincoln.

And that red fans, is your lot.

Cheers Cara, always an interesting read. Glad Kent's loan to rangers is going well, good lad. I'd love if either him or Wilson played a part next year, even as a squad player (though it doesn't look likely at the minute) .

Sad to hear Woodburn's loan isn't going well. If it continues to go the way its gone do any of the Ed's think he'll be recalled?

Wilson and Kent are the next two to break into the first team. Two brilliant wingers.

Legend carra. Some players are confidence players and maybe this explains Woodburn poor loan form. It must be hard for these, let's be honest, children. Going to a strange city, with team mates you don't know and may even resent you for being from a big club like Liverpool. There may be another couple of AMs trying to stake a claim or kick start a career.

I mean, we know how good woody is, I'd have him over any Sheffield United player. I can't help thinking maybe rangers would have been a better loan, with stevie g to look out for him. Look at the two boys shining in the Scottish prem. But you never know in football. Utd get an injury and Ben gets his shot.

Also, FAIR PLAY ADAM BOGDAN! Sometimes a figure of ridicule, the lad is showing he does have some real talent. 4 consecutive clean sheets is no mean feat.
