Rangers face a fight with Liverpool and Manchester United to sign Aberdeen kid Lancelot Pollard, according to a report, with the Gers apparently prepared to splash out a ‘six-figure fee’ for the teenager.

According to the Daily Express, the three clubs are all tracking Pollard ahead of him signing his first professional contract.

Pollard has featured for various age groups within the Dons’ Academy, catching the eye of a number of scouts and Rangers could look to make their move.

With Liverpool and Manchester United both interested, it could make it hard for Rangers to convince Pollard that his future remains in Scotland, while Aberdeen are said to be resigned to losing the highly-rated talent.

With the Gers in the final of the Scottish FA Youth Cup and looking to secure second in the Lowland League, there is plenty of positives for the Light Blues’ Academy sides.

A ‘six figure’ fee for Pollard would be a substantial outlay for a teenager yet to sign a professional contract but he is clearly very highy thought of at Ibrox and beyond.

Rangers have shown recently there is a clear pathway to the first-team for young players if they impress in the Academy so that could entice Pollard to swap the Granite City for Glasgow.

However, the chance to join the likes of Liverpool or United could prove too much of a draw for the teen and leave Rangers having to turn their focus elsewhere.
