Rangers youth player Tyler Pasnik has signed his first professional contract with the club, and supporters are delighted with the news.
Pasnik is a true Ger having joined the club when he was just four-years-old, before entering the Rangers academy at 10.
The 16-year-old can play up-front or in attacking midfield, and he grabbed a goal in the Under 18s 3-0 win over Celtic U18s back in November.

There will be many fans willing him to do the same for the senior team, and his development will be one to keep an eye on.
He follows in the footsteps of Robert Muir and Charlie Lindsay who also signed their first professional deals not too long ago, which shows Steven Gerrard has one eye on the future as well as no.55.
The Gers boss has given some game time to Leon King and Nathan Patterson this season, albeit limited.
That shows he is keen to promote his own academy products.
Nathan Young-Coombes is another who is rated highly at Ibrox, with West Ham and Brentford interested.
Pasnik is a little younger but has featured already for the U18s, and we are keen to see how Graeme Murty aids his development.
Here is some reaction to the youngster signing his first contract.
Brilliant. I love these stories
