Rangers have confirmed that Alex Lowry has signed a new contract at Ibrox, keeping the talented teen at Ibrox until the summer of 2025 and seeing off reported interest from Man City and Newcastle.
Lowry has quickly become a big favourite of the Rangers support after making the breakthrough into the matchday squad this season, replacing Ianis Hagi in a Scottish Cup tie to make his debut against Stirling Albion and getting on the scoresheet.
The midfielder was delighted to sign a new contract and hopes he can push for more regular first-team action under Gio van Bronckhorst, telling Rangers TV: “I want to thank Ross Wilson, Craig Mulholland and the boss for giving me the chance and for showing faith in me.
“I can only thank them and hopefully I can repay them by kicking on now and getting more and more games and good performances under my belt for this great club.”
Sporting director Ross Wilson was also delighted to se Lowry extend his contract, which was originally due to expire next summer, adding:
“Alex has progressed really well across the season and we are pleased to have rewarded his development with this contract extension.
“Alex is part of an exciting group of young players who we have progressed to the first-team group from the Academy.
“He has already shown our fans moments of what he can do and we are sure there will be more of them to enjoy in the future as he continues to work hard on all aspects of his development.
Lowry has huge chance to establish himself in the Rangers side
After impressing for the B team, Lowry was handed a deserved chance in the first team and grabbed it with both hands.
The midfielder has a huge chance in the coming months to really make a name for himself with a number of departures likely this summer.
With the likes of Steven Davis and Scott Arfield out of contract and Aaron Ramsey’s loan coming to an end, there’s going to be space in the side for Lowry to impress.
From what we’ve seen so far, he’s got all the ability to make the position his own and become a regular in the Rangers XI for years to come.
