Glasgow Rangers have reportedly ‘opened talks’ over a new contract for Adam Devine.
The Lowdown: Top talent
The defender has also featured heavily at youth level for the Gers and has already made three appearances for Rangers B so far this term (Transfermarkt).
The Latest: Contract talks
Taking to Twitter, reliable journalist Pete O’Rourke has revealed that Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s side have now ‘opened talks’ with Devine over a new deal at Ibrox.
The reporter stated: “Rangers have opened talks with defender Adam Devine over a new contract.”
The Verdict: Great business
It is certainly great business from the Light Blues to secure one of their prominent upcoming prospects in Devine to a new contract.
With Nathan Patterson sold to Everton last January, the teenage right-back should get more opportunities to play for the Gers’ first team this season, and he will have a great mentor in captain James Tavernier.
Should Rangers play Devine more?
Devine’s versatility means that he can also fill in on the left-hand side of the pitch if needed, an extra quality which should please Van Bronckhorst, and so the 19-year-old should expect to be given chances to impress over the course of what promises to be another busy season for Rangers.
