Young Glasgow Rangers winger Josh McPake is being targeted by a number of clubs including St Johnstone, Ross County and Bristol Rovers, according to a report published by Football Insider.
The report also added that the English League One duo of Doncaster Rovers and Bristol City are interested in luring the player.
McPake is a highly-rated youngster and was named as the Rangers Academy Player of the Year at the end of last season.
He is certainly worthy of getting regular first-team action, though he will likely only get a handful of appearances if he opts to remain with the Ibrox club season.
A loan deal at this time will suit the Rangers rising star best as it will allow him the opportunity to acquire more experience of senior football as well as hone his talents as a footballer.
Due to his glimpses of quality, McPake attracted interest but the Gers have managed to tie him down to a three-year contract.
The 17-year-old was given Rangers first-team opportunities during pre-season and performed impressively during his debut, which came during a Europa League qualifying victory over St Joseph’s FC.
Rangers can ill afford to take a lot of risks early on this season as they look to win major silverware this season.
McPake is a talented player but playing him in the first-team now will be a risk. A loan move will be the best thing at the moment for both club and player. Steven Gerrard must sanction such a move.
