Rangers starlet Alex Lowry signs new three-year deal at Ibrox

Rangers have finally managed to nail teenager Alex Lowry down to a new deal at Ibrox with the Scottish youngster staying until 2025.

The 18-year-old has broken into the Light Blues’ senior setup this season, scoring on his debut against Stirling Albion in the Scottish Cup, and has shone every time he has been given the chance to do so.

The Uddingston-based teenager was confirmed on the club’s Twitter account to have signed a three-year deal at Ibrox which ties him down until 2025 and prevents him from leaving for cheap or even free in the immediate future.

Manchester City and Newcastle United were the two English clubs most interested in bringing him south of the border [The Sun] but they have had their ambitions of signing the 18-year-old crushed by this news.

Huge

This is the best news any Rangers fan could have received today with their most promising young talent committing his future to the club.

It could have been very easy to leave Glasgow for either Manchester or Newcastle where he could have earned a whole lot more money but he is smart enough to realise that there is more to life than that.

Giovanni van Bronckhorst needs to select him far more regularly next season to keep him satisfied because he will have stayed at Auchenhowie in the hope that he would play senior games fairly often from the get-go.

He is more than good enough too having ran the show on the rare occasions he has stepped onto the pitch with his agile change of direction and matureness way beyond his years.

We can now look ahead to the summer with the confidence of knowing our most sought-after player is going absolutely nowhere.
