Rangers winger Josh McPake has travelled to Harrogate Town on Tuesday ahead of a season-long loan move, according to Jordan Campbell.
The Athletic journalist has shared that the youngster is at the League Two game against Carlisle this evening as he takes in his new surroundings.
“Understand that Rangers winger Josh McPake is at Harrogate Town’s game versus Carlisle tonight ahead of a proposed loan deal until the end of the season,” he wrote on Twitter.

The 19 year-old has been at Greenock Morton this season and has attracted interest from several clubs down south.

McPake has been at Greenock Morton, and looks likely to switch Scotland to move South of the border next month with huge interest.
The Daily Record reported this week that Salford City and Forest Green were also interested, but it appears that the Yorkshire side have won the race.
Steven Gerrard handed McPake his Bears first-team debut at only 17-years-old, and that just shows how highly-rated he is at Ibrox.
The chance to potentially step up the level of competition slightly in England is a great opportunity, and having Gerrard in charge will help the Gers analyse where it is best to send their younger players.
McPake hasn’t had it all his own way at Morton, and this loan move could be needed to give him a fresh start going into the second half of the season.
The 19-year-old has failed to score so far and has only delivered one assist in his six appearances for the Championship side.
Gerrard will want McPake to consistently introduce goal involvements into his game, and as his confidence rises, he could return next season with a real chance to break into the first-team.
