Transfer updates on six players as Rangers close in on two youth talents

The transfer window hasn’t even opened yet and there’s plenty of talk swirling at Ibrox. Between youngsters on loan, and youth talents signing for the Academy, we’ve got plenty to talk about.
After the signings of Jordan Jones, Jake Hastie and Steven Davis were confirmed, Rangers fans are still waiting on the fourth. Reports suggested it would be Greg Stewart, but so far, we’ve heard nothing from the club.
That means there’s still a chance number four could be someone else. So, without further ado, here’s the latest names being linked with a move to Glasgow.
