Rangers winger Jake Hastie has been in excellent form during his loan spell at English League One side Rotherham. The 21-year-old bagged his third goal in three games on Tuesday night.
The Millers were 1-0 down against Sunderland before Hastie scored with an excellent finish midway through the second half to secure a 1-1 draw at the Stadium of Light.
Fans on Twitter have been reacting to Hastie’s form out on loan:

Hastie actually scored on his debut for Rotherham against Doncaster in a 2-1 defeat earlier this month, and he followed that up with another strike in the 6-1 win over Bolton a week later.
He is certainly demonstrating his talents whilst out on loan, but it remains to be seen where he fits into the club’s plans. Manager Steven Gerrard has a large number of wingers in his squad, including Ryan Kent, Brandon Barker, Jamie Murphy, Scott Arfield and Sheyi Ojo so he will have a battle on his hands when he returns next summer.
