Rangers’ young attacking midfielder Alex Lowry has revealed that the side’s qualification for the final of the UEFA Europa League played a big role in his decision of extending his stay at Ibrox Stadium.

While showing excitement after signing a long-term deal, Lowry revealed that he is now keen to concentrate of his football.

“You can see where the club is going. We are in a European final in Seville. That was definitely a key point,” he was quoted by Daily Record.

“The fan base, everything about the club, I have loved it since I was young. I didn’t really want to go anywhere else. Now that the contract’s out of the way, I can concentrate solely on my football.”

Great news

Lowry’s extension is another good news for Rangers F.C. who are already on the cusp of creating history when they will face German side Eintracht Frankfurt in the final of the UEFA Europa League on May 18 at the Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan Stadium in Sevilla, Spain.

The 18-year-old is highly-rated in Scotland’s football community and was called into the senior team after his impressive performances in the B side.

On his debut, Lowry a goal against Stirling Albion in the Scottish Cup in January earlier this year and later made his first start in the Premiership as well against Livingston.
