Rangers have tied promising Academy player Jay Hogarth to a new deal.

The 17-year-old goalkeeper has impressed at age-group level with the Gers and will now stay at the club until at least the summer of 2023.

The news was confirmed over the weekend by the Rangers Youth Academy Twitter account, just days after the youngster took part in first-team training.

He took part in the session alongside high-quality senior keepers Allan McGregor and Jon McLaughlin, which must have been an excellent learning experience.

Jay’s older brother, Nicky, is also a goalkeeper on Rangers’ books.

The 19-year-old travelled to Gibraltar with the first-team for a Europa League Qualifier against Lincoln Red Imps in September and has since gone out on loan to Cowdenbeath.

He headed to Central Park Stadium on Boxing Day initially on an emergency short-term deal, but his stay there was soon extended until the end of the season.

His playing time with the Blue Brazil has been restricted due to the two-month suspension of all leagues beneath the Championship, but he returned to League Two action on Saturday, keeping a clean sheet in a 0-0 draw away to Annan Athletic.

Meanwhile, an Ibrox hero has snapped up an exciting young Rangers winger on a temporary deal.
