Rangers winger Josh McPake has revealed to The National that he had offers to leave the Ibrox club in the summer transfer window.

As reported by The National, McPake has put pen to paper on a new contract at Rangers that will see him stay at Ibrox until 2022.

The 17-year-old winger has expressed his delight at joining Rangers, and has claimed that he has turned down a few offers to commit his future to the Scottish Premiership outfit.

According to The Daily Record, Premier League outfit Liverpool were interested in signing McPake from Rangers in the summer transfer window.

McPake told The National: “I had no doubt that I wanted to be at Rangers and I made it clear that this was the club that I wanted to play for.

“I love the direction that the club is going and working with the gaffer. He will give young players chances and every time there are spaces in the squad he has us round.

“I knew this was where I wanted to be and I wanted it done as soon as possible.

“There were a few offers from other clubs but I always knew that I wanted to stay at Rangers so I’m delighted.”

Long-term future

McPake is a very talented and promising young winger, and him signing a long-term contract underlines just how highly Rangers rate him.

The 17-year-old had a good pre-season with Steven Gerrard’s first team, and the winger will have learned a lot from that experience.

While the winger is not ready to play for the first team yet, the teenager could get chances for Rangers in cup competitions this season.
