Official: Rangers strike deal with UEFA Youth League star

Rangers have announced a fresh deal for Ibrox B Team star and UEFA Youth League stand-out Connor Allan as part of a spate of fresh contract renewals.

Allan signing the contract follows on from deals for fellow Academy graduates Robby McCrorie and Adam Devine, who having made their first team debuts signed on to 2025 last week.

This is the same length of time that Connor Allan has signed a new contract and there are high hopes at Ibrox that the 18-year-old defender can join an illustrious group of young talents pushing for more first-team involvement at Ibrox.

The likes of Leon King, Alex Lowry, Charlie McCann and Robbie Ure are four other names who’ve came through at Rangers as of late and the club certainly has no shortage of young talent on its books.

Having played every single minute of Rangers’ UEFA Youth League campaign this season, Allan has clearly been amongst the stand-outs in the Gers’ youth set-up to convince the club’s hierarchy to offer him a new deal.

Rangers kid Connor Allan earns Academy praise

Academy Head Craig Mullholland paid tribute to the young Scotland U19 international, who recently underwent an evolution from midfielder to centre-back.

“We are delighted Connor (Allan) has extended his contract at Rangers,” said Mullholland [Rangers].

“Connor’s transition from being a midfield player to a centre back in the last 12 months has been carefully managed by our PDP coaching team and he has embraced it with the outstanding attitude he brings to all challenges.

“We believe that Connor is still early in his journey and there is lots of exciting development still to come which will see him maximise his potential. 

“I know his parents are very proud and they will provide great support to Connor as he aims to follow Nathan, Leon, Alex, Robby and others who have all transitioned to the first team in the last couple of years. Good luck Connor.”

Meanwhile, one former Rangers star is lighting up the league in his home country after a £1.5m summer move from Ibrox.
