Young Rangers striker Nathan Young-Coombes has revealed he’s delighted about joining Rangers from Chelsea.
The 16-year-old moved north of the border in February and he scored his first Ibrox goal in the 2-0 win by the Rangers Colts over Wrexham in the quarter-final of the Tunnock’s Caramel Wafer Challenge Cup on Saturday.
Jamie Barjonas got the other goal for Graeme Murty’s side as they took advantage of the international break to play the game at Ibrox.
Young-Coombes said that he saw Rangers as a fast-track to first-team football and believes he will develop quickly under Murty and Peter Lovenkrands.
Talking to the Scottish Sun, Young-Coombs said, “I came up here to eventually get first-team football. All I can do is score. The managers are very good.
“They know where I am in my development. I am only 16, so getting U21 football against a first-team like Wrexham, you’d think: ‘wow, hold on a second’.”
“I have faith in what our coaches will do for me in the future. Peter and Murts have been great for me. We are always talking about how I can take my game to the next level.”
Young-Coombes has impressed since arriving at Rangers and also got on the scoresheet in the recent UEFA Youth League game against Young Boys.
From what we’ve seen of him he looks full of confidence in his own ability and more than capable of pushing on and moving up the ranks. Scoring at Ibrox will have given him a taste of the big time – now he’s got to prove he’s got what it takes.
