Earlier this week, the Rangers Youth Academy, confirmed a contract extension.
Young goalkeeper, Kieran Wright, has committed to the club until 2020.

The 19-year-old stopper was between the sticks when the Gers Reserves secured the league with a 3-1 away win at Falkirk, last week.
He was preferred to Nicky Hogarth for that fixture, and now the club has placed further faith in him.
The Gers have the opportunity to clinch the @SPFL Reserve League title today by beating Falkirk and hoping there isn’t a major swing in goal difference.

There’s no doubt a first team spot is a long way off right now.
However, there’s set to be a shakeup in that department over the summer.
The Scottish Sun reports that Wes Foderingham and Jak Alnwick are both set for the exit door.
Meanwhile, two loanee stoppers are set to return.
Robby McCrorie spent the last few months on loan at Morton and has set his sights on becoming the Ibrox no.1 in the future [Scottish Herald].
Aidan McAdams is also due to return to the club. Yet, he won’t be holding such lofty ambitions just yet.
Yet, he’s hasn’t played since the end of April, with the manager, Peter Murphy, instead opting for Alex Mitchell in goals.
Congratulations to Kieran on his new deal and let’s hope he can continue to develop next season.
