The 22-year-old joined on a season-long loan from French club Angers earlier in July, and has settled into life as a Rangers player well after making his full debut in the recent Europa League qualifier against Croatian outfit Osijek.

And Coulibaly was back in European action tonight and looked seriously impressive against the Slovenian cracks, and he’s really cemented himself as possibly the most exciting signing Steven Gerrard has made since arriving in Glasgow.
Coulibaly scored the crucial third goal in the win, and whilst he’s not in the team to score goals, it certainly hasn’t hurt his standing amongst the club’s supporters.
Strong in the tackle, fearless and able to play a pass, Rangers supporters watching at home think they might have discovered a top player:
Coulibaly man of the match by a mile – Scott brown will be lucky to finish the season wae all his teeth

Whatever Angers FC want for Lassana Coulibaly, fucking give them it, and then give him whatever wages he wants.

Well deserved man of the match for @morelos2106.
What a second half performance.
I love Coulibaly.

Coulibaly could slide tackle my granny on my front garden and a would honestly be absolutely sound with it

Rangers looking very strong. Katic & Goldson are rock solid, Tav at his best and big Coulibaly is a machine

Some of the best football I’ve seen a rangers team play in years! As for coulibaly 🙏🏻🙏🏻👌

Really hope we can keep Coulibaly permanent. Missed a player like that for a few seasons now.

My biggest fear is big Coulibaly has a blinder this season and were priced out a transfer next year what a fucking machine
— GAL (@ANDYGAL19) August 9, 2018
Could Coulibaly be the rock-hard defensive midfielder that Rangers have lacked in recent years, and finally a decent challenge for Scott Brown?
