Its five years since a 16-year-old Tom Walsh became the youngest player ever to feature in a league game for Rangers.
And while the winger hasn’t quite lived up to that initial billing, he is starting to once again showcase the potential that made him one of Rangers’ most exciting academy graduates in recent years.
The now-21-year-old has been in superb form in the second tier with Dumbarton this season and looks set to make a step back towards the big time soon. Dundee United and Inverness, two of the biggest clubs in the Championship are keen to sign Walsh on the back of his superb performances in 2017/18, according to the Daily Record.
After being let go by Rangers in 2017, following a forgettable two-game spell in Ireland with Limerick, Walsh is starting to look like another one-that-got-away for the Ibrox giants – though he has a long way to go yet to match the exploits of Celtic-bound Lewis Morgan (below) and Hearts’ wonderkid Harry Cochrane.
But while Morgan already looks out of Rangers’ reach, their attempts to bring him back to Ibrox thwarted by their Old Firm rivals, should Graeme Murty’s side consider acting fast to hand Walsh a second chance before his reputation, and his price-tag, rises further?
After all, if St Mirren star Morgan was the best player in the Championship this season, Walsh is not too far behind.
