There’s something about left-backs at Dundee United. Just a few years after current Liverpool and Scotland star Andrew Robertson emerged at Tannadyce, 19-year-old Jamie Robson appears to be following in his footsteps.
How much longer Dundee United can hang onto the teenager, however, remains to be seen. Robson is out of contract at the end of this season and there are no shortage of suitors lining up to take him south of the border.
But in the near future, Rangers may also be in need of a talented young left-back. After all, Declan John is only on loan at Ibrox from Cardiff City and it is as yet uncertain where he will be playing his football this time next year.
And Lee Wallace, at the age of 30, appears to be past his best with some fans even begrudgingly coming to the conclusion that they need to start looking for his long-term successor.
Robson, then, should be in Rangers’ sights. The Perth-born youngster has emerged as oneof the most promising young players outside of Scotland’s top flight and the fact he is out of contract soon should be of interest to a Rangers side who don’t have access to unlimited funds.
At just 19, Robson has the potential to be an integral part of Rangers’ first-team for years to come.
