Rangers have confirmed young forward Chris McKee has signed a new contract at Ibrox.

The official Rangers Youth Academy Twitter account announced on Thursday that the 18-year-old has put pen to paper on a new deal that lasts until the summer of 2022.

McKee has been in stunning form for Rangers’ B team this season with him scoring more goals than any other player [8] and double that of the second-highest scorer Dapo Mebude.

Earlier this month, Gers fans were waxing lyrical over the former Linfield attacker when he scored two goals in the B team’s 3-1 win against Brechin City in a friendly game.

The teenager was dubbed a “real prospect” by one fan while another claimed he “seems to be a natural goalscorer regardless of where he plays for the team”.


It was indeed high praise for McKee, who was called up to the Northern Ireland Under-21s side in the last international break.

Unfortunately, McKee didn’t manage to play and spent the whole of the 3-0 defeat to Ukraine’s Under-21s on the bench.

McKee has since returned to Rangers and will surely be trying to impress Steven Gerrard by scoring goal after goal for the B team.

It’s already good news for the youngster to have been offered a new contract because it shows that the club is fully aware of his impressive performances.

Once he catches the eye of Gerrard, we might see him feature in the first-team in the near future although he does play in a position that is well-stocked in the senior squad.

Still, that shouldn’t stop McKee from reaching for the stars and hopefully proving to be a major asset at Ibrox in the future.

In other Rangers news, Charlie Adam has shared what he told Gerrard about Borna Barisic before the left-back was signed.
