Rangers have already secured the services of young Charlie Lindsay, a young player so talented he left Glentoran teammate Marcus Kane ‘gobsmacked’, as reported by the BBC.
A dazzling talent who recently became the youngest player ever to feature for Glentoran, Lindsay has already agreed to join Scottish Premiership giants Rangers in the near future.
The fleet-footed midfielder, who made his record-breaking bow during a recent 3-1 win against Ballyclare Comrades, has a long way to go before he establishes himself as a first-team regular at Ibrox and history is littered by talented teenagers who failed to live up to early expectations.
But Glentoran’s 27-year-old captain believes that the sky is the limit for a player who looks set to go from strength to strength.
"I actually thought he was 16," Kane told the BBC.
"When one of the players said he was 15, I was gobsmacked. He doesn't play like a 15-year-old - he's been amazing since he came in."
Lindsay is expected to play for Rangers’ youth teams initially though, should he impress behind the scenes at Ibrox, there’s no reason why Steven Gerrard won’t give him at least a brief run out for the first team.
Gerrard started his coaching career with Liverpool’s U18s and his confidence in young players should stand Lindsay in good stead.
