Palmer and Shiels have already spent time out on loan this season; with Palmer at Partick Thistle where he made 20 appearances during the spell from July to December, scoring one goal while Shiels made nine appearances for Dumbarton.
Rangers sporting director Ross Wilson thinks the change of environment will really help all three continue their development as they play in the second-tier of the American league system.
“We feel that Danny, Cammy and Matthew will benefit from playing in a competitive and growing league within a challenging new environment whilst playing in front of expectant fans every week,” Wilson told Rangers TV.
“We will track their progress closely.”
“We wish our three players and Orange County SC the best of luck for the season ahead in the USL.”
Orange County’s President of Soccer Operations Oliver Wyss called the triple signing a “historic moment” for the club as they prepare for the new season.
“We are delighted to add Matthew, Danny and Cammy to our team as part of our Rangers FC partnership,” Wyss told OCSC’s official website.
“Our technical staff had a chance to watch and meet the three European Youth Internationals and we could not be more excited to continue their professional development in our structure.
“This is a historic moment for our club and our fans will be pleased to see the players have an impact on and off the field for Orange County!”
All three will hopefully find their time stateside beneficial in their development and allows them to kick on for a first-team place upon their return to Ibrox in a little under a year.
