Jordan Campbell has now revealed some significant Glasgow Rangers transfer news on Cole McKinnon.
The Lowdown: New deal
As per the official website of the Ibrox outfit, McKinnon has now signed a new three-year deal at the club after impressing for the Teddy Bears’ B team last season.
The central midfielder won their Players’ Player of the Year award, after his contributions in the UEFA Youth League, SPFL Trust Trophy and their Glasgow Cup success last campaign.
The Latest: Campbell update
Taking to Twitter, The Athletic journalist Campbell has revealed that McKinnon is now ‘expected’ to join Partick Thistle on loan after signing his new contract, adding that he is ‘highly rated’ by the Gers:
“Understand Rangers midfielder Cole McKinnon, who signed a new three-year deal yesterday, is expected to join Partick Thistle on loan.
“The 19-year-old is highly rated at Ibrox and scored in the final league game of last season. Goes box-to-box and has a knack of getting a goal.”
The Verdict: Good move
After signing his new deal, a loan move for McKinnon would be best for all parties involved.
Should Rangers let McKinnon go?
The Scotsman scored on his senior debut in the 3-1 win away at Hearts in the Scottish Premiership last term, but that is his only senior appearance for the club (Transfermarkt), and so would benefit from some regular game time at Partick.
A side also based in Glasgow, McKinnon would still feel close to home, and in the Scottish Championship, he will be able to further his development by playing competitive men’s football week in week out after impressing at youth level for the Light Blues.
