Glasgow Rangers youngsters Jordan Thompson and Ross McCrorie have both expressed their delight at being included on the Ibrox side’s pre-season tour of America.

Mark Warburton has admitted that chances will be harder to come for next season for Rangers youngsters, but he was keen to offer them a route into the first-team.

Rangers took a handful of youth team prospects on tour of America with them, with Thompson and McCrorie two of the youngsters to benefit.

The pair both played a part in Rangers’ 2-1 friendly victory over Charleston Battery, and they were pleased to have made an impact.

Thompson has some first team experience for the Ibrox side, but McCrorie is still trying to make his name at Rangers.

With competition for places increasing at the Scottish Premiership side, the duo could find it hard to break into the first-team.

However, Warburton name-checked both McCrorie and Thompson when discussing which players had impressed him over pre-season.

“Jordan [Thompson] came in and did very, very well, Ross [McCrorie] came in and filled Tav’s boots well,” he said to the club’s official site.

Rangers’ tour in America has just come to an end, with the newly promoted Scottish Premiership club due to travel back to Glasgow later today.
