Rangers' Under-17s are through to the semi-finals of the ALKASS International Cup after a 7-0 win against Ecoile Sportive du Sahel on Sunday.

Two Rangers strikers, Chris McKee and Nathan Young-Coombes, scored hat-tricks for David McCallum's side, for whom Arron Lyall was also on target in Qatar.


But it was Young-Coombes in particular who caught the eye of those of a Gers persuasion.

The 16-year-old only moved to Ibrox from Chelsea's youth system in January, on a contract until June 2021, and is already looking like an inspired piece of business.

This is what Rangers fans are saying about his performance on Twitter...













Young-Coombes, who had been on trial at Rangers, was previously on the books of Crystal Palace.

The Londoner has also been capped by England at up to under-15 level.

Rangers could play either AS Roma or Real Madrid in the semi-finals, with the pair due to face Spartak Moscow and Kashiwa later on Monday.

Could Young-Coombes make a breakthrough for Steven Gerrard's Rangers first-team this season?
