Rangers talent Liam Burt has left on loan to join Alloa Athletic.

Alloa confirmed the move on their official website.

The 19-year-old is a highly rated prospect at Rangers who lost most of last season to injury.

After recovering he made a late loan switch to Dumbarton, where he made 13 first team appearances, scoring once.

Burt made his first team debut under Mark Warburton back in 2016 when Rangers were promoted to the Championship.

Changes in management, a turnover of first team players and injuries have all combined to delay Burt's progress since.

The attacking midfielder is a Scotland under-21 international and he will be hoping to catch Rangers boss Steven Gerrard's attention.

Alloa are 10th in the Scottish Championship, bottom of the league, after two games. 

Burt has the opportunity to make a name for himself by leading them to a turnaround.
