The Rangers first-team squad reported to the Hummel Training Centre at Auchehowie on Monday, for the first session of pre-season.

The club released a video of the players completing a bleep test and uploaded a gallery of photos from the session.

Excitingly, two new arrivals were spotted donning Rangers colours for the first time.

Furthermore, six players can be spotted in either the training video or photos, who are returning to Ibrox after spending time out on loan last season.

Greg Docherty

Docherty was sent to Shrewsbury Town in League One and did all that was asked of him. He got a lot of minutes under his belt, making an impressive 50 appearances in all competitions. Furthermore, added goals to his game, scoring ten times. After picking up the third tier side’s Player of the Year award, he’ll be hoping to force his way into the well-stocked Gers midfield.

Jason Holt

Holt spent 2018/19 playing under his former teammate Joey Barton at Fleetwood Town. He turned out 33 times in League One before his season was cut short by injury. It’s unlikely he’ll feature in Steven Gerrard’s first-team plans this season.

Jak Alnwick

The keeper turned 26 yesterday and received a bleep test as his present. He spent last season on loan at Scunthorpe as their no.1, but couldn’t prevent the Iron from being relegated to League Two. His future at Ibrox is uncertain and could depend on whether or not Wes Foderingham stays.

Zak Rudden

This teenage forward made quite an impact in the Scottish Championship last season. He netted 12 league goals for Falkirk and took home every major award at their end of season dinner. However, he couldn’t prevent the Bairns from being relegated to the third tier. Stevie G is likely to run his eye over the forward before deciding whether or not another loan stint would be beneficial.

Robby McCrorie

This Scotland U21 international also spent time in the Scottish Championship, but only for the second half of last season. He established himself as no.1 at Morton, making 15 appearances. If the likes of Alnwick and Foderingham up sticks, he could be in line for a promotion.

Jamie Barjonas

Barjonas is coming to a crucial stage of his Ibrox career. He experienced two very different loan spells last season. The first, at Bury in EFL League Two, was something of a non-starter. Yet, his second attempt with Raith Rovers was more successful. He became a regular in midfield and helped his adopted side to the playoffs.

As pre-season builds and the friendlies come around, it will be interesting to see how much of a chance each of these players is afforded by the manager.
