Young Rangers winger Ross McCausland has signed a new deal at Ibrox which will tie the Northern Irish talent to the club until 2024.

The three-year deal is a major statement of intent from the Ibrox club and is testament to how highly the player is regarded at Ibrox.

Under the terms of the new arrangement, the updated deal will take 18-year-old McCausland into his early 20s and it’s an exciting move for the club’s B Team.

A talented winger, Rangers have high hopes for the boyhood bluenose who’ll now look to breakthrough into the club’s first team.

“We are delighted to extend Ross’s contract until 2024,” said Rangers Head of Academy Craig Mullholland [Rangers].

“We believe that Ross still has lots of potential to realise and there is so much more to come from him as he continues his development and learning journey with our excellent staff.

“The modern game requires ‘1v1’ dominant players and this is a real strength that Ross has that we will look to enhance.

“He is a massive Rangers fan who is well supported by a strong family unit and we are all excited to see how he matures and develops as a player and as a person in the coming years.”

Rangers have high hopes for Northern Irish winger Ross McCausland

A Northern Irish youth international, there are clearly high hopes for young Rangers winger McCausland who continues to impress for the club’s B Team in the Lowland League.

Rangers fans love nothing more than one of their own breaking through into the first team and fans will be delighted that the club has moved to sign up one of their brightest young attacking talents.

The player’s ability to drive past players into the box was exemplified in the B side’s latest game, as McCausland set up Tony Weston’s opener against Gala Fairydean.

The Young Gers might’ve gone on to lose that match 2-1 but the club’s B Team project is about development and young Ross has clearly been rewarded for his fine form and application at that level.

The player has also scored three goals from the wing in the Lowland League this season.

McCausland will now shift his focus onto the UEFA Youth League as the young Gers prepare to face Swedish side Hammarby.

“It’s a prestigious competition and one we’re looking forward to participating in,” said McCausland [Rangers].

“We’re excited to be taking on European competition like Hammarby. We strongly believe that competing inthese competitions will be good for our development.

“We want to start this competition strong and have been doing all we can in preparation for the game.”
