Rangers have bid knocked back for Reagan Thomson - report

Rangers have reportedly had a bid knocked back for highly-rated Queen’s Park youngster Reagan Thomson, according to reports.

The Daily Mail are claiming that both Rangers and Newcastle United have had bids kicked out for the midfielder.

The report claims the Magpies had a £35k bid thrown out for Thomson, whilst Rangers offered less for the starlet.

Still only 16, Thomson has already made 12 appearances for the League Two side and is considered one of the brightest talents in the Scottish game.

So much so Rangers were said to be behind Premier League outfit Newcastle United [Daily Record] in the chase to secure the midfielder’s signature.

With Queen’s Park also set to turn professional, it is believed they had hoped to make Reagan Thomson one of their first-ever paid players despite the reported Rangers interest.

But with interest aplenty there’s every chance the youngster will move on come January.

The likes of Celtic have also been attributed with an interest in Thomson’s services.

This is also the second piece of news concerning Rangers and a young player to come out this week.
