Rangers: Report makes Josh McPake claim

Rangers: Report makes Josh McPake claim -Rangers News

Glasgow Rangers youngster Josh McPake is being targeted by AFC Wimbledon, according to a report from Football Insider

The lowdown: Eternal loanee

A graduate of the academy in Glasgow, McPake made a senior bow for the Gers under Steven Gerrard against St Joseph’s FC in the Europa League qualifying phase in 2019.

Since then the right-winger has spent time on loan at Dundee FC, Morton, Harrogate Town, Morecambe and most recently with Tranmere Rovers.

Set to return to Ibrox in the coming weeks, the Scottish youth international is now believed to be considering where his future may lie…

The latest: ‘Joined the race’

As per Football Insider, recently relegated AFC Wimbledon are keen on signing the ‘surplus to requirements’ 20-year-old attacker.

It’s claimed that the League Two outfit have ‘joined the race’ alongside Raith Rovers and Carlisle United to sign McPake this summer whose ‘future is up in the air’ at Rangers.

The report also states that ‘sources’ at Ibrox have suggested that the Teddy Bears are ‘willing’ to part with the youngster who was dubbed ‘too hot to handle’ by former Harrogate manager Simon Weaver.

The verdict: Time’s up

Despite a promising youth career, recent spells away from the club have flattered to deceive and Giovani van Bronckhorst is unlikely to hand McPake another shot at first-team football in the near future.

The supremely versatile forward has scored seven times and provided three assists in 66 games across the various levels of his career, but he struggled to make an impact in five outings whilst on loan at League One Morecambe before an ankle issue cut that short.

Valued at just £68,000 and under contract until 2024 (Transfermarkt), the Gers should at least be confident of boosting their own budget slightly with the sale of McPake, particularly having only agreed on a new deal last summer.
