Partick Thistle are interested in signing Adam Devine on loan

Rangers youngster Adam Devine is set to make a loan move to Partick Thistle, according the Daily Record.

The League One club are eager to take the 17-year-old on loan until the end of the season, with the lower leagues set to re-start after halting temporarily in early January.

Devine is highly rated at Ibrox and was described as an “exciting talent” by the Head of the Academy Craig Mulholland when he signed a contract in September 2020.

Mulholland also suggested there was interest in Devine from English clubs at the time, which shows he was highly sought-after.

Good opportunity

The lower leagues returning to action is a positive for us as it brings about opportunities like this.

Devine is highly regarded but he is very young and needs to build himself up by playing men’s football.

That is the best way of building his understanding of what is needed to succeed, and he should return to Rangers a better player as a result.

Partick Thistle could suit him well too.

They have performed reasonably well this term and have conceded just six goals – the least of any side in the third tier.

That is a positive for Devine, and hopefully he can adopt a mindset that makes him determined not to concede goals.

He has big competition if he is to succeed at Rangers so must take this opportunity with both hands.

Taking James Tavernier’s place is difficult enough but Nathan Patterson is his natural understudy, and he is only 19.

Devine should look to emulate Patterson’s positive traits and if he does we could see him in a Gers shirt at some point soon.

In other Rangers news, according to one report we prepared a £5million bid for a 23-year-old who was sold for ten times less than that in January.
