Rangers FC Building

Livingston's Matthew Knox has started training with Rangers today.

According to the Daily Record - and the above picture posted by photographer Willie Vass - Livingston teenager Matthew Knox has joined Rangers on trial.

The Gers have taken a host of players on trial during Mark Warburton's time at the club, and whilst some players like Maciej Gostomski, Andy Halliday and Jason Holt earned permanent deals with the Gers, others like Reece Wabara, John Eustace, Gai Assulin and Vladislavs Gutkovskis haven't been quite so lucky.

Now, it's the turn of Livingston ace Matthew Knox bidding to win a deal with Rangers, having joined the club on trial according to a report from the Daily Record.

Knox, 16, is one of the most highly-rated teenagers in Scottish football, and recently went on trial with Manchester United, as reported by the Daily Mail.

The Livingston youngster is also a target for the likes of Everton, Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur, Swansea City, Nottingham Forest, QPR according to the Edinburgh News, but Rangers are looking to steal a march on those English clubs by getting him in for training today.

Knox, who primarily plays as a striker, has made three first-team appearances for Livingston this season, and looks to have a bright future ahead of him - and if he manages to impress Gers boss Warburton, he could end up turning out for Rangers in the future.

Do you think Knox will join Rangers permanently?
