In-demand Rangers talent to leave club for England - report

Out-of-contract Rangers B talent Kyle McClelland is set to move on from the Ibrox club this summer amid interest from a host of English Championship sides.

The Northern Irish youth international will be let go if Rangers can secure a suitable sell-on fee for the regular B team captain’s services from any of the interested parties as part of a development agreement.

That’s according to the Daily Record, who name top Championship sides such as Sheffield United, Cardiff City and Huddersfield as being amongst the interested parties.

Your Club's SURPRISE Star This Season

Given the player’s contract expires in the summer, the suggestion appears to be that Rangers would rather negotiate a suitable sell-on clause when Kyle McClelland leaves the club than take a development fee.

A regular for the Rangers B team in the Lowland League this season, the Ibrox side are said to rate the young Northern Irishman very highly.

However, Kyle McClelland is said to be eyeing more first-team action and given the emergence of the likes of Leon King, that appears unlikely at Ibrox.

Kyle McClelland reportedly set to leave Rangers

Rangers manager Giovanni van Bronckhorst has followed through on his promise to blood more youngsters at Ibrox and we seen that during the win over Dundee United.

The likes of Leon King, Alex Lowry and Adam Devine all impressed in the 2-0 victory and the future certainly appears bright at Rangers.

Unfortunately for both Rangers and Kyle McClelland if there are no guarantees of top team game time it does suggest that the young Ulsterman’s career would be better served elsewhere and an exit appears likely.

Let’s hope that whatever happens the youngster can go on to have a successful career in the game should he leave Rangers, and perhaps he can even return in the future.

Meanwhile, another Rangers centre-half has suggested he’s ready to extend his deal at Ibrox.
