Confirmed: Striker arrives at Rangers ahead of possible summer deal

Rangers have taken 16-year-old striker Michael Ruth on trial, according to a report.

The Scottish Sun claim that the Queen’s Park player has travelled with a young Rangers side on a trip to Germany this week.

Despite his age, the report claims he broke into the first team after impressing with the Under-20s and has also played for Scotland Under-16s.

A club spokesman was quoted as saying, “Michael has been at the club for over five years and we are delighted with how he has developed.

“Rangers are keen to have a closer look at him and he has gone to the tournament with our best wishes.”

Not much is known about Ruth although he’s impressed enough to get the chance to play for a dream move to Rangers. He is said to have broken through into the first team, but he’s actually only graced the bench to date, but this did come about after impressing in the development squad. It’s an exciting time to be linked to Rangers, with the imminent arrival of Steven Gerrard shining a huge spotlight on the club. Young players will be keen to get a chance to impress a manager who knows all about youth development, after taking charge of Liverpool’s youngsters. Ruth will have to perform in Germany to get that chance and we wish him all the best. Meanwhile, Rangers fans will be awaiting Gerrard’s start date at Ibrox with excitement. He takes over on June 1 and we fully expect there to be action as soon as the Scottish transfer window opens.
