The 19-year-old has made seven appearances for the Jags this season and will be hoping he can make his first appearance at under-21 level for Northern Ireland.

The York-born midfielder will face Gers’ team-mate Stephen Kelly, on loan at Ayr United, this weekend in the final round of domestic fixtures before the internationals.

Baraclough’s side face Malta at Ballymena Showgrounds next Friday before travelling to face Finland on Tuesday, September 10th with Denmark, Romania and Ukraine making up the rest of Group B.

Palmer signed a new contract at Ibrox over the summer to keep him with the Gers for a further year and he’ll be hoping to catch the eye with impressive performances for both club and country.

The chance to play regular games for Partick should really help his development and see the teenager continue to work towards a first-team place at Rangers.

If he can make the breakthrough at under-21 level for Northern Ireland too then it would be a massive boost for everyone.
