Rangers boss Mark Warburton has confirmed that Livingston teenager Matthew Knox is on trial at Ibrox.

Rangers manager Mark Warburton has told the club's official YouTube channel that Livingston teenager Matthew Knox has started his trial with the Gers.

Reports from the Daily Record suggested earlier today that Knox, 16, had arrived at Rangers to start his trial with the club, having emerged as one of Scottish football's top young talents.

The young striker, who has made three appearances for Livingston this season, recently went on trial with Premier League giants Manchester United, as reported by the Daily Mail.

Now though, Knox has joined up with Rangers, with a view to the Gers moving to snap up the teenage forward during the summer transfer window.

At a press conference held this morning ahead of Rangers' game against Queen of the South this weekend, manager Mark Warburton spoke to the club's official YouTube channel - and was asked about Knox.

Warburton admitted that Knox has indeed arrived for a trial spell at Rangers, and 'did well' in training earlier today, with the Gers boss suggesting that he will see how things go.

Warburton also noted that Knox is just one of many trialists to join the club, but he will be hoping to follow the likes of Jason Holt and Andy Halliday in winning a permanent deal, rather than players like Reece Wabara and John Eustace, whose trials didn't lead to anything permanent.

"He's a young boy on trial, he's been in and was here earlier in the week when I was away," said Warburton. "He trained this morning and did well, so we'll see how thing progress, but he's just one of a number of players that come through the doors on trial," he added.

Do you think Knox will win a permanent deal at Rangers?
