Alan Hutton claims that Rangers are “building something special” as the club look to sign up and coming talent this summer.

The former Gers defender and boyhood fan at Ibrox, speaking exclusively to Football Insider assistant editor Russell Edge, has lauded the club for focusing on the future rather than making “easy fix” signings.

The Light Blues confirmed the capture of 16-year-old Charlie Lindsay from Glentoran last week, while they also sealed a deal for 20-year-old Calvin Bassey on a pre-contract from Leicester City.

As revealed by Football Insider, the Gers have also set their sights on Leicester 18-year-old Dennis Gyamfi, although they face fierce competition for his capture.

Hutton has applauded the Light Blues for focusing on signing up and coming talents, insisting it will only bode well for the club in the future.

Hutton told Football Insider: “The scouting system, how far and wide they’re going and what they’re really looking to bring in for the future.

“It looks to me like they’re building something special – well, hopefully. It’s not like they’re going for an easy fix, just bring someone in for a year and then move them on.

“They’re really looking to build for the future and create something special in the youth ranks.”

Bassey, a left-back by trade, is set to leave Leicester without actually playing for the Foxes’ senior side.

However, despite his age, Lindsay has got first-team experience under his belt after becoming the youngest ever player to feature for Glentoran.
