It’s safe to say that Rangers have already experienced quite a lot of success with youngsters under Steven Gerrard in the current campaign, as the likes of Ryan Kent, Glenn Middleton and Ross McCrorie are just a few players who have surpassed expectations.
And, it looks as if the Light Blues could secure an agreement with a youngster in the near future, as according to The Scottish Sun, Rangers are close to signing Jake Hastie on a pre-contract agreement.
Hastie has made a name for himself in the Scottish Premiership this season and is arguably one of the hottest prospects in Scotland, so bringing him to Ibrox could be massive.
With that in mind, here are the potential consequences of securing a pre-contract agreement…
MARK ALLEN SECURES POTENTIAL RYAN KENT REPLACEMENT
Many fans will agree that Ryan Kent has been simply sensational since moving to Scotland as he continues to grind out quality performances, with five goals and nine assists to his name at this moment in time.
However, his future remains uncertain as Liverpool could decide to keep him in the summer transfer window, so fans will be anxious to see what develops from here on in until the end of the season.
So, with there being no clues about what the Reds intend to do with the winger at this moment in time, perhaps Mark Allen can secure himself a potential replacement for Kent in the form of Jake Hastie as they both operate in the same position and have an incredible amount of potential and quality.
JAMIE MURPHY ANNOYED
Jamie Murphy suffered a horror injury back in August as he damaged the ligaments in his left knee and he hasn’t returned to actions since then, though, he was reportedly nearing a return to training last month.
The Scotsman operates as a left winger, which is exactly the same position that Hastie operates in, so bringing the youngster to Ibrox could annoy Murphy as he would face competition for a place in the side after having to deal with the frustrations of spending a long period out injured.
Rangers fans, how do you think Hastie will fare at Ibrox if he makes the move?
