Barrie McKay’s future with Rangers is up in the air after the winger was instructed to train with the Under-20 squad, according to a report.
The Daily Mail has revealed that the 22-year-old was informed on Monday that he would be training with the development squad rather than the first team.
McKay joined the Ibrox in 2012 on a six-year-deal, and is about the enter the last 12 months of his contract with the Glaswegian club.
The report claims that the winger declined a two-year extension with the club in addition to a pay rise, which further suggests a departure from the club.
This comes just days after The Scottish Sun reported that team mate Andy Halliday had also been told by Pedro Caixinha to train with the club’s Under-20s which suggested that the 25-year-old was due to be loaned out over the coming season.
The 22-year-old Scotsman looks to be the latest victim of boss Pedro Caixinha’s overhaul of the squad as the Gers manager already appears to have made a dramatic impact during his first transfer window at the Ibrox.
Caixinha has recruited eight new players so far in the hope of improving the club’s chances during the 2017/18 campaign.
Despite the doubts cast over McKay’s future, the attacker has been named within the squad list for the club’s Europa League game against Progres Niederkorn on Thursday.
