Rangers: Five other Academy players to sign new deals alongside Cameron Scott
Five other starlets from the Glasgow Rangers Academy – alongside Cameron Scott – are reportedly set to sign new deals at Ibrox on Sunday.
The Lowdown: Scott deal agreed
It was reported this morning that Scott is set to sign his first professional contract at Rangers, despite rejecting an initial offer from the club.
He is set to sign terms on a three-year deal, and is viewed as an ‘extremely exciting prospect with first-team potential’ after snubbing interest from Premier League Southampton.
The Latest: Five more to sign
According to Football Insider, five other rising stars from the Academy are also set to sign new professional contracts on Sunday alongside Scott.
Christopher Eadie, Lewis Stewart, Alfie Halliwell, Joshua Gentles and Lancelot Pollard have all committed their future to the Gers, as the club look to invest in a new crop of promising youngsters.
The Verdict: Exciting future
The future certainly looks bright for Michael Beale’s side, as they look to tie down talents that could eventually break into the first team.
Eadie and Stewart in particular have received high praise in the past, while the others will also look to make their mark in the Academy.
The Light Blues had only handed out five professional contracts in the last two years before signing these six up, showing how much faith they have in them to impress, and their new deals should bring a sense of excitement to the supporters and around the club.
