Rangers academy prospect, Rhys Breen, has taken part in a Q+A for the Rangers Youth Development Co, as summarised on the club’s website.
The 19-year-old centre-back has had a tough time of it with injuries this season.

However, he made his return in time to help earn the club some silverware.
He scored the first for Rangers Reserves, in a 3-1 comeback win at Falkirk last week, which secured the league title.
During the Q+A, he covered that game as well as his journey back to full fitness. Most interestingly, he had good words to say about a senior player on the verge of leaving the club.
“Lee Wallace”, answered Breen, as quoted by the club’s website, when asked who he looks up to in the Gers first team. “He’s a really good leader and role model.”
That wasn’t the end of the praise for the 31-year-old, though.
When another fan asked a similar question about Rangers role models, he again responded: “Lee Wallace.”
“He takes an interest in a lot of the youth players who are coming through and gives us all good advice and makes us feel welcome.”
It’s great to hear that despite his own issues at the club this season, Wallace is still giving back.
He’s been a great servant to Rangers since joining from Hearts in 2011.
With his contract expiring at the end of the season [Transfermarkt], it sounds as though he’ll be sorely missed by some of the Gers’ brightest young prospects.
