Palmer and Shiels have already spent time out on loan this season.

The former was at Partick Thistle where he made 20 appearances during the spell from July to December, scoring one goal, while the latter made nine appearances for Dumbarton.

 

 

Rangers sporting director Ross Wilson thinks the change of environment will help all three continue their development as they play in the USL Championship, the second tier of the US league system.

"We feel that Danny, Cammy and Matthew will benefit from playing in a competitive and growing league within a challenging new environment whilst playing in front of expectant fans every week," Wilson told Rangers TV. "We will track their progress closely."

Palmer, Finlayson and Shiels will hopefully find their time stateside beneficial in their development as they seek to reach the ultimate goal of kicking on and breaking into the Rangers first team come the end of the year and beyond.
