Rangers can put an end to their troubles in the left-back slot with a move for Glenavon full-back Bobby Burns, who is being dubbed one of Northern Ireland’s brightest talents.

The 18-year-old has already attracted the interest of Scottish Premiership side Hearts but we think that the youngster can solve one of the Light Blues problem areas.

With Lee Wallace injured, Declan John has filled in for the Gers captain and done so impressively in the left-back spot but the lack of strength in depth is alarming.

And let’s face it, at 30 Wallace isn’t getting any younger either which means the club need to start planning for the future.

Burns has become a mainstay in the Irish Premiership outfit and integral part of the side which sits third in the table.

The youngster has registered four goals from defence but noticeably he has totalled 12 assists in 32 outings for Glenavon.

Burns is versatile too, and has featured in the midfield and forward positions for the side.

Hearts aren’t alone in their interest, according to a report in the Daily Record the youngster is attracting interest from the Premier League as well as other clubs in Scotland so the Light Blues would need to act quickly and be decisive in any potential pursuit of the ace.
