The 24-year-old, who moved to the Blades from Swansea City in August 2019 for £20m [BBC Sport], has received a hard time from sections of Scotland national team supporters as a result of his club allegiance.

But it doesn’t look as though he intends to tone down his support any time soon.

He shared an image on his Instagram story wearing the special edition commemorative shirt released immediately after Rangers’ 55th top-flight title win.

With only a certain number available in the first batch, many supporters won’t receive their shirts until 1 June.

Yet, McBurnie was clearly quick off the mark and he proudly showed off his jersey to his 93k Instagram followers.

The 6ft 2″ forward has had a difficult season on the pitch, only scoring once in 25 appearances for Sheffield United, who were recently officially relegated from the Premier League.

He won’t play again this campaign, either, having picked up a serious foot injury earlier this month.

The bluenose may still make a big transfer move this summer, though, with Wolves reportedly considering a £15m swoop [The Sun].

In other news, Rangers are reportedly competing with Premier League clubs for a pacy winger who plays in Switzerland.
