Rangers starting XI confirmed for UEFA Youth League clash vs Sevilla

Rangers have confirmed their starting XI for this afternoon’s UEFA Youth League fixture against Sevilla.

The Young Gers are taking on the Spanish club in a playoff match, with the winners progressing to the knockout phase of the competition.

Earlier this season, Rangers hammered Hammarby IF of Sweden 5-1 on aggregate in the first round of the Domestic Champions Path, before downing Bulgarian side Septemvri Sofia 7-2 over two legs.

Those wins set up a one-off tie with Sevilla – who finished runners up in Champions League Path Group G – on home soil.

A number of B team regulars such as Charlie McCann and Juan Alegria are ineligible for this competition, but David McCallum has still named a strong looking team.

Jay Hogarth, who has spent some time training with the first team this season, has been named between the sticks.

The back four consists of Adam Devine, Leon King, Kyle McClelland and Robbie Fraser, with King dropping down from the first-team squad.

In midfield, Cole McKinnon has been given the armband and he’ll play alongside Murray Miller and Charlie Lindsay.

Alex Lowry is likely to be given creative license as part of a front three, with Robbie Ure and Ross McCausland the two out-and-out attackers named in the side.

Surprisingly, there’s no room in the starting XI for Tony Weston, who starred in previous rounds and has 20 goals to his name in the Lowland League. He is amongst the substitutes.

16-year-old Rory Wilson is also on the bench.

The young striker has been sensational in front of goal for the Rangers U18s so far this season and has also starred for Scotland at age-group level.

Meanwhile, a player Rangers missed out on during the summer transfer window is enduring a nightmare loan spell in Scotland.
