Aaron Lyall’s potential is getting the backroom staff at Rangers very excited, that is according to a report from Football Insider.
The 16-year-old is one of a number of promising young players currently in the academy, but he is thought to be the one whom coaches believe is the brightest talent.
The report from Football Insider suggests that Lyall has been “one of the shining lights” amongst a selection of young players who the club have been impressing.
It suggests that the 16-year-old is the pick of the bunch and that he has been developing very well this season. Indeed he is already regularly playing for the under-18’s meaning he is performing at a level above his age group.
Added to that, he has also been playing for Scotland’s under-16 side, making four appearances so far and scoring one goal (via scottishfa.co.uk).
Academy chief Craig Mulholland and under-20’s boss Graeme Murty are said to be extremely impressed with the youngster, and both believe that Lyall can go on to break into the first team in the coming years.
There is no doubt that Lyall has significant potential, as highlighted by the fact that he is already playing in Rangers under-18 team despite being just 16-years-old.
It is great news for Rangers that they have such a promising young player coming through their ranks. In recent years they have struggled to produce their own talent, and as Football Insider say in their report the last academy graduate to become a first-team regular at Ibrox was Barrie McKay.
Instead, they have been forced to buy young players from other clubs, such as Glenn Middleton who they signed from Norwich City and Jake Hastie who is a Motherwell academy graduate.
Hopefully, Lyall can buck the recent trend, and become a regular in the Rangers first team in the coming years.
