Over the weekend, we suggested that Cammy Palmer could to be on his way back to Rangers after he was absent from the Partick Thistle squad which took on Alloa at Recreation Park.
Now, his imminent return has been confirmed by the Scottish Championship club.
A statement released by the Jags’ Official Twitter read:
“Cammy Palmer will return to Rangers as his loan with Thistle expires. Cammy returns to Rangers with the thanks and best wishes of everyone at the club for his contribution in red and yellow.”

The news comes around a fortnight after Ian McCall said he would speak to Palmer about the pros and cons of extending his stay at Firhill.
Clearly, it was decided that it was best for the 19-year-old midfielder to come back to Ibrox for the second part of the season.
It’s unlikely that he will get in the first team between now and the summer, but he should play a prominent part for the Development and Colts teams in their upcoming fixtures.
During his stint at Thistle, the Toronto-born Northern Ireland youth international made 20 appearances in all competitions, scoring once and registering two assists.
He’ll now hope to apply what he learned from his first experiences in senior football, in order to impress the Gers coaching staff over the next few months.
