EFL club Harrogate Town are set to complete the signing of Rangers attacker Josh McPake on Monday, Football Insider can reveal.
The League Two club have seen off competition from division rivals to land the 19-year-old forward on loan for the rest of the season.
Ibrox sources have told Football Insider that McPake has already undergone a Harrogate medical and is set to sign a contract on Monday and link up with his new teammates.
Football Insider revealed last Tuesday that the fourth-tier outfit had won the race to sign the McPake ahead of Forest Green Rovers.
The teenager travelled south to watch Town’s league clash with Carlisle United last week only for it to be abandoned due to a frozen pitch.
McPake will join former Celtic youngster Calvin Miller at ambitious Harrogate.
The Ibrox rising star will join a Harrogate side playing their first ever season in the Football League after they gained promotion to League Two via the National League play-offs earlier this year.
McPake has spent the first half of this season season on loan at Scottish Championship side Greenock Morton, grabbing two assists in 12 appearances across all competitions.
Rangers have opted to recall the Scotland Under-19 cap and agree another move that they believe will help his development.
The club have high hopes for McPake, a versatile attacker who operates anywhere across the front line but mainly on the right flank.
That shows the faith Rangers have in McPake, who had a difficult loan spell at Dundee in the first half of last season.
The teenager made his first-team debut for Rangers in the Europa League qualifying win over St Joseph’s FC in the summer of 2019 but has not added to that solitary appearance.
