Rangers academy chief Craig Mulholland has stated he believes there are “many more” academy players ready to make the transition into the club’s senior team.
The Ibrox giants have had a disappointing first season back in the Premiership and they are currently set for a third placed finish with 64 points earned from their 37 league matches.
However, one of the bright lights of their campaign has been the number of young players who have all made their first team debuts and only on Wednesday did the Gers’ 18-man squad contain David Bates, Aidan Wilson, Serge Atakayi, Jamie Barjonas and Myles Beerman.
But, the production line doesn’t seem to be stopping there either and during and question and answer session on the official Rangers youth Twitter account Mulholland was asked who would be next to make the transition, to which he replied that there was many more to come.

Rangers fans will of course be delighted by this exciting view from Mulholland with fans at every club keen to see their team with a number of youth graduates.
It could also help the Glasgow giants close the 36-point gap with fierce rivals Celtic for little cost other than youth fees for staff and facilities.
