Rangers: Alex Lowry could still leave on loan
Glasgow Rangers reporter for The Athletic, Jordan Campbell, says that Alex Lowry could still leave Ibrox on loan before the transfer deadline.
The Lowdown: Raskin in
Rangers have already completed their major business of Transfer Deadline Day, confirming the signing of midfielder Nicolas Raskin from Standard Liege on a long-term contract for an undisclosed fee.
That is not to say that they are completely finished ahead of tonight’s deadline though, and they could look to offload one or two players after the arrivals of Raskin and Todd Cantwell.
The Latest: Lowry out?
Taking to Twitter, Campbell says that Lowry could still leave on loan before the deadline, but it would depend on the right manager and the right style of football:
“Lowry could still go out on loan but was told it was dependent on the right manager and right style of football.”
The Verdict: Keep him!
It is true that Lowry has not had much senior football so far this season, with only three games played in all competitions.
However, the 19-year-old should be playing more matches, having impressed with the Gers at youth level with 12 goals and two assists in 20 appearances (Transfermarkt).
His former academy coach Graeme Murty has even gone as far as to claim that Lowry is ‘unlike anyone else’ at the club, hailing his ‘technical ability’, ‘range of passing’ and ‘remarkable self-confidence’.
Nonetheless, Michael Beale will need all of the help that he can get in order to catch Celtic at the top of the Scottish Premiership table, and Lowry would be an extra weapon in his armoury should he keep him.
