Nathan Young-Coombes signed for Rangers from Chelsea, at the beginning of February.

Moving from London to Glasgow, was a huge decision for the youngster to make. It seems to be paying off so far, though.

He quickly became a standout in the Gers’ U17 team. Less than a month after he arrived, he played a pivotal role as Rangers became the first British club to win the prestigious Alkass International Cup in Qatar.

Since returning, the success has continued to come.

The Young Gers have marched into the Youth Cup Final, with Young-Coombes scoring in the semi-final against Aberdeen.

On Tuesday afternoon, he went on the spot in a Q+A on the Rangers Youth DC Twitter account.

Unsurprisingly, there was no shortage of questions for this emerging talent.

One answer, in particular, stood out, though.


“What major differences are there between RFC Youth and Chelsea Youth, other than finances?” asked one fan.

“There are not many differences”, replied Young-Coombes via the RYDC account.

“The professionalism and quality is just the same here as at Chelsea. My teammates, coaches and older boys have made me feel welcome and I can see a pride in this club whereas that doesn’t really happen down south.”

It’s great to see a new recruit speak so highly of the Rangers youth setup.

Bears will also love to hear that a new signing has already identified an extra pride in the famous shirt.

Financially, the Gers can’t compete with Premier League clubs. Yet, if they can match or better them in other departments, more young talents might soon follow in Young-Coombes’ footsteps.
