Rangers secure under-18 title and book place in UEFA Youth League

Rangers under-18s have beaten Hearts at Oriam to win the league and secure the double for Davie McCallum’s side this season.
After beating Celtic last week to lift the Scottish FA Youth Cup, the young Gers went to Oriam knowing a win over Hearts would be enough to seal the title.

Goals from James Maxwell, Kyle McClelland and Kai Kennedy were enough for the Gers and books their place in next season’s UEFA Youth League.
A number of the squad were also part of the victorious side at the Alkass International Cup at the start of 2019 in Qatar.

Next season will also see the club take part in the UEFA Youth League for the first time, alongside Celtic, with the Gers entering the ‘Domestic Champions path’ – meaning they will enter a straight knockout competition with other sides who are not taking part in the senior Champions League.
The sides who are taking part in the Champions League will mirror their club’s senior fixtures before the eight group runners up play the eight teams who make it through the ‘Domestic Champions path’ with the winner of those games then facing off against the eight group winners in a knockout tournament.

If the Gers can progress that far, the semi-finals and final Colovray Stadium in Nyon, Switzerland over a four-day period in late-April 2020.
FC Porto are the current holders of the competition after beating former Rangers youngster Billy Gilmour’s Chelsea in the final last week.
