Rangers fans have got plenty to be excited about considering some of their young talents at the club. The likes of Glenn Middleton, Greg Docherty and Dapo Mebude are all players to get excited about, but they’re not the only ones, with the young Josh McPake, who has been loaned to Dundee, also on the books.
Academy Player of the Year Josh McPake has today joined Dundee on-loan until January.

The 17-year-old attacker is heading to Dundee where he’ll get a much better chance at playing first-team football than he would at Ibrox, and it’s not hard to see why the youngster would have been wanted by the Scottish Championship side either.
Last season the young Gers man won the club’s academy player of the year award, and whilst he might not be getting a sniff in the first team because of the likes of Jermain Defoe and Alfredo Morelos, he performed exceptionally well for the reserve side and U18s, leading to this chance in a senior side, albeit a division below the Premiership.
