Rangers Academy goal machine Rory Wilson has received a Scotland U17 call-up alongside three of his Gers teammates.
It’s an impressive achievement for Wilson, given that he’s still only 15, but not a particularly surprising one given his remarkable early season form.
The striker has been a standout performer for the club’s U18s side, netting consecutive hat-tricks a few months back against Dundee and Partick Thistle.
Despite his age, his form earned him a spot on the bench when the U19s took on Swedish youth champions Hammarby in Dumbarton in the UEFA Youth League last month.
He came on in the closing stages of that match and now another learning experience beckons.
Wilson will be in Northern Ireland on Scotland duty from late October to early November for UEFA Under-17 Championship Qualifying Round fixtures against NI, Albania and Italy [Scottishfa.co.uk].
The three other Young Gers to receive call-ups are Zak McKay, Jacob Pazikas and Greig Allen.

Allen is a highly-rated player who was snapped up from Hearts in the summer and who scored in Rangers U18s’ comfortable win over Motherwell earlier this week.
The Gers are the Scottish champions at that age group but are currently only third in the league table, with Dundee United and Hibernian in first and second respectively.
Three other Rangers Academy starlets were in action for another nation at U19 level this week and they helped to pull off an impressive away win.
