Done deal: Robbie Fraser agrees terms with Rangers as contract signed
Robbie Fraser has agreed to sign a contract extension at Rangers, meaning he’ll stay at Ibrox until the summer of 2024, it has been confirmed.
The Rangers B & Academy Twitter account announced on Tuesday (9 May) that the 20-year-old left-back has signed up for another couple of years at Ibrox with his previous terms being due to expire this summer.
Fraser has never played for the Gers’ senior team but he has made the first team’s matchday squad on a number of occasions in the last few years without ever getting off the bench.
One to watch
The 2023/24 season could be a very big one for Fraser.
The Glasgow-born left-back is itching to break into the senior side at Ibrox and there’s no doubt he should get a chance to show Michael Beale what he can do over the summer.

Borna Barisic has failed to impress for years now and Ridvan Yilmaz has really struggled since his arrival at Ibrox last summer.
Fraser is the third-choice left-back unless there are any centre-backs Beale would want to play out of position but we feel as though he should get plenty of chances to impress.
Rangers have struggled to bring through young talent in recent years.
While the likes of Rory Wilson and Billy Gilmour have been snapped up by English Premier League clubs at a very young age, there have been players like Nathan Patterson and Alex Lowry who’ve had more of a shot but not been relied upon.
There’s too much stubbornness at Rangers. Too much worry about moving away from what we already know.
James Tavernier doesn’t have to start every single game. Ageing and out-of-contract players like Scott Arfield shouldn’t be chosen over youngsters showing promise. And so on.
