Rangers attacker Josh McPake is reportedly a target for English National League side Chesterfield – despite his involvement in a Queen’s Park Championship promotion push.

The 21-year-old forward was once amongst the most highly-rated players in the Rangers Academy but finds himself in the Scottish second tier with the Spiders.

This follows on from a series of loan moves for the attacker, who signed a three-year Rangers deal in 2021, with McPake previously turning out at six different loan clubs.

Now, Chesterfield have been linked as an interested party in Josh McPake as they look to aid their own promotion push, with the Spireites third in the English fifth tier and well in the hunt for a Football League spot.

At least that’s according to the Glasgow Times, who claim Paul Cook’s side want McPake to help fire them to glory this season.

This comes after loan switches at Dundee, Morton, Harrogate Town, Morecambe, Tranmere and Queen’s Park already in the player’s young career.

Josh McPake linked with Chesterfield

Once prized by ex-Rangers manager Steven Gerrard, Josh McPake could now be turning out at Chesterfield despite previously making the breakthrough at Ibrox.

in 2019, the winger was handed his Rangers debut by the Scouser as a 17-year-old and despite being given that contract extension has failed to kick on at the club.

Josh McPake now needs somewhere to call home permanently and Chesterfield could represent an interesting option for the player in the years ahead.

An English Football League One club in 2017, they will be hoping to escape the National League after toiling in the division for the last five seasons.

Josh McPake has made 22 appearances for Queen’s Park this season, scoring four goals and laying on two assists with the club currently top of the Scottish Championship.

Meanwhile, Charlie McCann has broken his silence after exiting Ibrox.
