Rangers progressed to the next round of the Scottish Youth Cup after a 5-0 demolition of bitter rivals Celtic.
Of the goal-scorers Nathan Young-Coombes, Kai Kennedy and Leon King will be the names most familiar with fans of the Light Blues, the latter attracting attention in recent days despite being only 15-years old. Liverpool, Chelsea and RB Leipzig have all been credited with an interest in an article in The Athletic via The Sun.
To avoid a similar situation which saw Billy Gilmour move to Chelsea, Rangers are looking to tie King down on a longer contract and have done likewise with other academy players like Josh McPake and Dapo Mebude.
Speculation linking one of their brightest prospects didn’t dampen the spirits of fans of the Ibrox side as they took to Twitter to celebrate such a resounding victory over their noisy neighbours.
Brilliant score for the yound team. Some amount of talent in that group of players. Young-combes, kai kennedy are class 🔴⚪🔵👌

The current crop of academy players coming out of the Hummel Training Centre are proving that the future is bright for Rangers, if they can keep a hold of them all.
