Mark Warburton has confirmed Rangers remain in negotiations regarding loaning out two or three more youth players unlikely to make a major dent in the first team at Ibrox this season.
Warburton famously demoted Andy Murdoch to the U20s, and the likes of Robbie Crawford and Jordan Thompson may find their chances in the senior team limited as well, while Calum Gallagher was a shock sale to St Mirren at short notice.
Rangers’ boss said:
“If we can (put them out on loan), yes. There are one or two conversations going on for sure.”
It can only be mere speculation but the most likely outgoings would be Andy Murdoch and Robbie Crawford, with the former linked to Cowdenbeath.
Rangers’ boss went on:
“It works in terms of their development. You can have kudos and say ‘I’m on the bench for Rangers’ and not play for 8 weeks. It’s important as a young player, 19, 20, 21, 22 (years of age) that you’re out playing football. So if we can get the right loan for the young players we’ll do that.”
Only a couple of days left for these deals to go through.
