16-year-old Czech youngster Krystof Hampl has expressed his delight at joining Rangers. 

Hampl – who had trials with the Gers over the summer – posted an Instagram message with the young Czech midfielder posing with a Rangers scarf and saying, “I’m happy to join this club, ready for new challenges”.

Hampl helped the Rangers youth side to a third-place finish at the Spartak Cup in Russia in the summer.

And he started for them in the 4-0 victory over Hibs last week.

Hampl had trials with Man United and Benfica before making his move to Scotland in what’s been said is a two-year deal.

He will spend these two years in the Academy at the Hummel Training Centre where he will hope he can impress first-team manager Steven Gerrard.

Hampl will join a group of very talented Rangers youngsters, some of whom are already making waves.

Josh McPake, Dapo Mebude, Kai Kennedy and James Maxwell all starred for Scotland’s Under-19s when they beat Germany 1-0 earlier in the month.

Meanwhile, the first team travels to Porto tonight in a really tough test in the Europa League.
