Few Rangers fans may remember the name of Tom Lang, but he appears to be thriving at nearby Clyde.

The Gers landed Lang back in the summer of 2015, with Mark Warburton taking a punt on the centre back after leaving Birmingham City.

As a former Scotland youth international, there was some hope that Lang would develop at Ibrox and head towards the first team, but he failed to make a single first-team appearance.

 

Lang was released by Rangers after just a year, and a nomadic spell began, spending six months with Dumbarton before a seven-month stint at Stranraer.

In January 2018, Lang started with Clyde and made just his eighth appearance this season in the draw at Annan on Saturday afternoon.

Lang seemingly impressed though, as he was named in the SPFL Team of the Week yesterday, joining Rangers ace Ross McCrorie in the side.

At 21, Lang still has time on his side to live up to his past billing, and now appears to be getting a run of games at Clyde under Danny Lennon.

He may not get back to Rangers one day, but impressing with Clyde is one way to get moving back up the leagues again, almost three years since his Ibrox exit.
