Rangers Academy quartet Adam Devine, Alex Lowry, Charlie McCann and Zak Lovelace will be handed greater Ibrox chances under Mick Beale.
At least that’s according to BBC journalist Kheredine Idessane, who claims that all four players have been promoted to the first-team with immediate effect.
This will be music to the ears of Rangers fans who’ve wanted to see greater involvement of their young players all season long amid a disappointing downturn in domestic form.
Whilst Giovanni van Bronckhorst deserves credit for bleeding many of these youngsters, given some serious gaps in the squad they could all have a role to play between now and at least the January window.
Mick Beale to put faith in Rangers youth
With Adam Devine, there have been complaints regarding the perceived fitness of James Tavernier, and the 19-year-old didn’t appear to be trusted as the Ibrox skipper hobbled to the World Cup break.
Alex Lowry has struggled with injury all season long but now looks firmly set to break back into the team come the end of the World Cup break.
Charlie McCann is another exciting midfield prospect and it’ll be interesting to see if the ex-Man United youth can have an improved role under Mick Beale.
Zak Lovelace – who made his debut against Queen of the South in the League Cup earlier this season – continues to impress at B Team level and despite only being 16-years-old is being tipped for the very top.
All four players bring something different to the team and its interesting to think that Mick Beale is set to put his trust in youth in the weeks and months ahead.
The former Ibrox assistant spent years in the academies at Liverpool and Chelsea and certainly knows a thing or two about developing the top young talent.
Rangers will be hoping the influence of the manager can also help them retain the services of another young midfielder at the club.
