Former Rangers defender Craig Moore has lavished praise on Ibrox youngster Alex lowry following another impressive performance against Livingston on Wednesday evening as the side struggled to a 1-0 victory.

The Ibrox side was heavily depleted heading into the match, with Joe Aribo, Ryan Kent, and Alfredo Morelos all missing which meant Giovanni van Bronckhorst started with Lowry in midfield after his excellent debut against Stirling Albion.

The 18-year-old has been praised by supporters and players alike following these two displays and Moore was another one to hail the impact he has had on the team.

“It will be a pleasure for everyone at Rangers to manage him through that process of development,” said Moore to GoRadio.

“He looks so comfortable on the ball and really confident on it.

“He’s not demanding it all the time but that will come with experience but when he has that ball, he looks totally at ease.

“He has the ability to go left and right, and I know that Fashion Sakala got man of the match, but I actually thought that Lowry was the best player on the field.”

This is high praise from a Rangers legend and one that will only motivate Lowry further.

Alex lowry could have a bright future at Rangers as a new deal edges closer

The Scottish Daily Express has recently reported that Rangers intend to tie down Lowry to a long-term contract following his recent performances.

The youngster’s deal was set to run out at the end of next season, but this is something Giovanni van Bronckhorst wants to sort out as soon as possible, with the likelihood that there could be plenty of suitors for the talented player.

With fellow starlet Leon King having signed a new deal recently, the Dutchman is doing a fantastic job of managing the talent at his disposal and planning for the future.

Meanwhile, a former Rangers striker has taken over at Championships side Hull City following a recent £30m takeover.
