Premier League giants Man City are the latest to be linked to Alex Lowry as the player’s contract situation rumbles on at Rangers.

The talented 18-year-old playmaker has been the breakthrough star of this season for the Gers and but for an injury sustained in the last few months perhaps would’ve seen even more gametime.

In total, the youngster has made four appearances for the club and fans have been urging Rangers to sign Alex Lowry up with only a year left on his current deal.

Known to be eager to do just that, the situation is undoubtedly complicated by these links to the likes of Man City and Premier League rivals Newcastle United.

Football Insider – who’ve reported on Alex Lowry’s contract situation closely – claim that Man City have had a meeting with the player’s representatives regarding a potential move.

This comes after the same outlet claimed that Alex Lowry’s agent met with Newcastle United recruitment chief Steve Nickson in early April.

It’s all very ominous if true with the billionaire-backed English Premier League duo undoubtedly in a different stratosphere when it comes to player wages.

Rangers quite simply cannot afford to pay Alex Lowry the same as Man City or Newcastle and the player has a big decision to make on his future.

The elegant midfielder will undoubtedly get more game time at Ibrox, giving him the chance to develop his game and build as a player before moving on.

But the kind of wages on offer down south are life-changing and for the midfielder and his family could be a dealbreaker.

That said, contrary to intimations in the reportage surrounding Alex Lowry, he does have one year left on his current deal and any suitors would need to pay a transfer fee to sign him in the summer.

Whatever the case, Rangers media partners Heart & Hand have claimed that reports Alex Lowry has turned down a move to Ibrox are wide of the mark with the Gers still very much an option.

Certainly a popular young player at Ibrox, the youngster also nailed his colours to the mask this week as he took a chance to goad Old Firm rivals Celtic.
