Mark Warburton confirms these three youngsters have joined Rangers first-team training

Mark Warburton has brought three players in to the Rangers first team training sessions.

Rangers manager Mark Warburton has told the club's official website that three youth team players have been brought in to first team training sessions.

Even after winning his first ten games as Rangers boss, with 38 goals in the process, Warburton is still looking to find any way possible to improve his squad.

During his time at Brentford, Warburton gained a reputation for working with and developing young players, and we have already seen that coming through at Rangers.

Barrie McKay has been handed a key role in the three-man frontline for Rangers, whilst Ryan Hardie and Fraser Aird have been on the bench in recent games.

Now, Warburton is looking to promote more young Rangers talent, and has brought three youth team prospects into training with the first team.

Speaking to the club's official website, Warburton confirmed that Ross McCrorie, Max Ashmore and Dylan Dykes have all been training with the first team this week, particularly praising Dykes having been a reserve in case of injuries for Rangers recently.

"On Monday we brought up three younger players – Ross McCrorie, Max Ashmore and Dylan Dykes – to train with us, and we have no hesitation or no qualms at all over using the boys from the Academy. They are there and they are working hard, and they deserve to be with us.

"We’ve seen Dylan come on for the under-20s as a substitute a couple of times and make a positive contribution. He deserves his chance and we’re pleased with him. I see a player with a languid style who can see a pass and time his forward runs very well."

"For a young man to be 19th man at Ibrox two weeks on the bounce and experience everything that goes with it and seeing how the first team players prepare and ready themselves for a game at first-team level is fantastic for him, and it’s all part of his development. Hopefully he relays those experiences down to the Academy guys, and they feed off of that," he added.

Rangers fans will be hoping that Warburton can help bring through young talent during his time at Ibrox, given how the previous regime had moved away from that strategy and preferred to go with - often overpaid - experienced players.

With Warburton at the helm, Rangers' young players have the perfect manager to work under - and it seems that they will have opportunities to show what they can do as well.
