The talented Nathan Young-Coombes is a name from the Rangers youth set-up which is being banded around a lot at Ibrox recently.

And the thing is – that’s probably not without good reason. Rangers signed the 16-year-old English youth forward from Chelsea in January and he’s enjoyed an explosive start for our youth set-up.

He was full of praise for it and appear to speak very well in an interview with the Evening Times. He even praised the Gers Academy as being “a step ahead” of Chelsea’s, namely because of our relationship with the young players.

All the sounds coming from Young-Coombes are very good, on and off the pitch. And Rangers seem to be very willing to give the youngster exposure – a sure-fire sign of how highly he’s rated at Ibrox.

He’s been proving his ability too. First came a hattrick in the ALKASS Cup, then a “Laudrup-esqe” piece of skill, before helping the U17s become the first British team to lift it.

This was a tournament which included youth teams from the likes of Real Madrid, PSG and AS Roma.

Back on home soil he even recently banged in a hattrick for the U18s against their Dundee United equivalents.

It’s a testament to the youth set-up at Ibrox that they spotted Nathan Young Coombes and that he has praised it so highly in the press.

But it’s also a testament to how highly Rangers value the player that he is getting so much exposure.

He’s clearly highly regarded at Ibrox and if he continues this way it won’t be too long before we see him in the top team.
