Rangers want to sign Partick Thistle sensation Cameron Cooper, compensation ready

Rangers want to sign Partick Thistle sensation Cameron Cooper this summer, according to the Daily Record.

The newspaper have reported on their website that the Bears are keen to land the Scotland under-17 international, who is regarded as highly rated up and down the country.

It is shared that Rangers are willing to pay compensation to bring the young striker sensation to Auchenhowie this summer as they also look to do the same will Millwall attacker Zak Lovelace.

Cooper has come through the ranks at Partick Thistle, and could now be rewarded with his big move to the top of Scottish football before the new season starts.

There is said to be a real academy drive at Rangers.

The Bears are ready to bring in numerous players this summer for their ‘B’ team as well as the younger age groups as they push to improve the standard coming through.

Perfect.

Rangers is the club to be at right now.

No other club in Scotland is bringing through young players as successfully as we do, and that is bound to continue in the years to come under Giovanni van Bronckhorst.

The Dutchman has handed out debuts for fun at the end of this last season, and the breakthrough of people like Calvin Bassey who arrived for hardly anything from Leicester is a sign that you can reach the top.

Cooper could be the replacement for the outgoing Rory Wilson, who is expected to leave Ibrox to join an English club, possibly even Steven Gerrard at Aston Villa.

Ross Wilson has moved quickly to identify potential replacements though which everyone will like, and if they settle quickly, they will start scoring goals straight away.

With the compensation not likely to be an issue, there is no reason why this deal cannot be sorted out imminently and Cooper can start a new career in Glasgow.

This is one to watch out for in the coming weeks, and the coming years as he attempts to make a name for himself.
