Rangers youngsters could still head out on loan before the end of the season after the SPFL extended the loan window for Championship, League One and League Two clubs.

Clubs outside the Premiership can still bring in domestic loans until the end of February normally but clubs were informed last week that has now been extended to March 31 – ahead of this afternoon’s expected decision on the resumption of the lower leagues and Scottish Cup.

The Gers already have a host of young players out on loan with clubs in the lower division and the prospect on a condensed calendar could see clubs look to bolster their ranks with loan sigings.

Getting young players out and playing in the final weeks of the season will be vital for their development after a masively stop-start season for Academy sides and the scrapping of the UEFA Youth League.


While the Gers still have the final of the Glasgow Cup to play at some stage too, getting player vital first-team minutes is far more important in the long-term than collecting some silverware at youth level.

With lower league clubs hopeful the Scottish FA will given the the OK to resume training and playing again imminently, there could be a potential flurry of moves in the next few days.
