Rangers were busy adding to their first team over the summer, but they've also been steadily adding to their youth ranks in recent times too.

The Gers brought in Umaro Balde from Sporting, Kane Ritchie-Hosler from Manchester City, Albert Rachi from Tottenham Hotspur and Linfield duo Ross McCausland and Lewis MacKinnon.

They may not have made many headlines, but they're all prospects for the future, who may well end up coming through the ranks to play for Steven Gerrard's first team.

 

Rangers also appeared to have added another player earlier this month, as Czech midfielder Krystof Hampl was dropping hints about a move to Ibrox.

Having played a in a tournament for Rangers as a trialist, Hampl changed his Instagram bio to 'Player at Rangers Football Club' despite no official word from the Gers.

Fans may be waiting for Rangers to confirm a deal for the 17-year-old, but it's safe to say that he's a Gers player now thanks to reports in the Czech Republic, and because Rangers named him in their academy line-up against St Mirren last night.

Efotbal have not only published a photo of Hampl in Rangers gear at Ibrox, but have also spoken to agent Emil Kovarovic about the youngster's situation.

Kovarovic has admitted that Hampl trained with Manchester United before heading to Rangers, and then the teenager preferred a move to Ibrox, which is a major coup for the Gers having also seen off Sporting Braga and Benfica.

“I started working with him a year ago in the spring,” said Kovarovic. “He has already completed internships in Manchester United, Sporting Braga, Benfica and Glasgow Rangers. He was more interested in working with the Scottish club. He attended a Moscow tournament there in August and then got an offer,” he added.
