Just last night, it was
reported that Kevin Thomson was set to be appointed as the club’s new U18 coach.
In addition, several players who have spent at least some time in the Academy have impressed at senior level this season.
Namely, Ross McCrorie, Zak Rudden and Ryan Hardie.
There’s now yet more cause for congratulations. Three Rangers youngsters are in the Scotland Under 16s squad to take on Australia.


Jack McConnell, Alex Lowry and Aaron Lyall will take their place alongside some of the other brightest talents from across the country.
Dundee United, boast the most representatives. They have five youngsters in the 16-strong squad.
Kick off is at 1:30pm on 24th January, at the Toryglen Regional Training Centre.
It’s a major honour for all three young Gers.

It’s great to see so much success within the club at age group and reserve team level.
Nothing beats homegrown talent, and Rangers are getting a lot right in that area at the minute.
