Sources: Rangers open talks over Devine deal

Rangers have opened talks with Adam Devine over a new contract, sources have told Football Insider.

The Glasgow giants are working on a deal to extend the terms of the right-back, 19, beyond the summer of 2023.

Rangers coaches regard Devine as a top talent capable of establishing himself in the first team in the coming years.

He made his senior debut as a 66th-minute substitute during a 2–0 win over Dundee United in May and has made two first-team appearances.

Devine was one of five Rangers youth team players handed new contracts in June of last year.

On 6 March 2021, Devine joined Partick Thistle on loan for the rest of the 2020/21 season in a bid to provide the player with the experience of regular men’s football.

However, the move was cut short after two weeks and the defender joined then-League Two side Brechin City on 23 March 2021.

He made 11 appearances for the side and provided two assists during those outings.

Devine is yet to feature for the Gers this season but has featured on the bench for the senior side in their games against Livingston, Union Saint-Gilloise and PSV Eindhoven.

As a result of training with the first team and making several senior matchday squads, Devine has only made 3 appearances for the Gers’ B team this term.

Rangers dropped their first league points of the 2022-23 Premiership season away to Hibernian on Saturday (20 August).

A long-range effort from Josh Campbell in the 92nd minute stole a point for the hosts.
