It is typically difficult to discover the identity of a mysterious ‘trialist’.

Though, thanks to Don Hutchison, we now know that his eldest son, Max, was one of a number of unknown youngsters who turned out for Rangers on Tuesday night in a pre-season friendly clash against Cambridge United.

But did young Max Hutchison do enough to stick around? We don’t know yet how long Don’s eldest offspring has to impress at Rangers, or whether he will end up earning a professional contract with the Glasgow giants.

Though it seems the common consensus is that he more than held his own alongside the likes of Jamie Murphy, Glenn Middleton and Serge Atakayi.
