Some Rangers fans are tipping Nathan Young-Coombes for a place in Steven Gerrard's first team next season.
Young-Coombes, who only turned 16 in January, moved to Rangers later than month from Chelsea.
Already the striker has made a positive impression at Ibrox and starred during last month's ALKASS Cup in Qatar, in which the Gers' Under-17s returned home victorious.
And after his hat-trick in Thursday's 5-0 win for the U18s against Dundee United, the calls for him to be fast-tracked are increasing.

Too early for a first team call up for Young-Coombes? Would like your thoughts please?— Billy Smith (@J20BHS) 14 March 2019
Very impressive performance from the Rangers under 18's against Dundee United under 18's this afternoon at St Andrew's University. Yet again some of our attacking play was outstanding & the addition of Nathan Young-Coombes already looks like good business with his hat-trick.— Willy (@SpatestonBear2) 14 March 2019
Rangers striking options currently comprise Alfredo Morelos, Jermain Defoe and Kyle Lafferty, all of whom are under contract at Ibrox beyond the end of this season.
And the trio could find themselves joined by loaned-out pair Ryan Hardie (pictured) and Zak Rudden when Gerrard's side begin pre-season training - leaving Young-Coombes with a job on to break in immediately.
But there is certainly no rush for the Englishman, who signed a two-and-a-half year deal at Ibrox.
Does Young-Coombes deserve a look-in with Rangers' first team next season?
