Former Rangers starlet named on Premier League bench again

Former Rangers youngster Nathan Young-Coombes was on the bench for Premier League side Brentford for the second successive game as they completed a fantastic turnaround to defeat Watford 2-1.

The 18-year-old secured a spot in the squad for the 2-2 draw against Leeds last week for the first time under Thomas Frank and due to an injury to Ivan Toney, he was named among the substitutes for the dramatic match against Watford.

A last gasp penalty by Bryan Mbeumo secured another vital win for Brentford as they find themselves in the lofty position of ninth in the Premier League. It has been a fantastic start for the newly-promoted side.

Although Young-Coombes hasn’t made an appearance yet, the experience of being included in the matchday squad will do the youngster no harm at all.

His form for Brentford’s B team has clearly not gone unnoticed as he scored his 16th goal of the season for the B side in midweek and looks like he could fulfill his potential at the London club.

The Englishman is still some way off from being the finished product, but the management team at Brentford seems encouraged by his potential and he could well have a promising future with the Premier League new boys.

Rangers may rue losing the talented 18-year-old further down the line, although the Ibrox side still has some talented attackers in the academy including Tony Weston and Ross McCausland, who may have fantastic futures ahead of them.
