Rangers midfielder Ben Williamson has joined Livingston on loan after agreeing a one-year extension to his Ibrox contract – and Gers fans have encouraged the Scotland under-21 ace to “chase your dreams” and win a first-team spot for the Light Blues.
Williamson had an impressive spell on loan with Arbroath last season, picking up their Young Player of the Award despite only signing in January before winning his maiden Scotland under-21 call-up.
Livingston boss David Martindale was delighted to welcome him to the Lions, having been impressed by him at Arbroath.
Martindale is looking forward to seeing him in action and he could make his debut against Alloa in the Premier Sports Cup this weekend.
The Livi boss thanked Rangers for letting Williamson head out on loan and thinks he has a “great future” in football, telling Livingston’s website.
“I’m delighted that both Ben himself and Rangers FC have chosen Livingston as the club best placed to help Ben in his progression.
“I watched Ben action a number of times last season whilst watching Jack Hamilton and Carlo Pignatiello at Arbroath and was always impressed. I really believe he has a great future in the game and I’m happy to get him on board here.
“Ben hasn’t long made his Scotland U21 debut which tells you the quality the lad possesses.
“I must say a big thank you to Rangers Football Club, Ben and his agent Pete Cormack for working with us to make the deal happen.”
Rangers fans are delighted to see him extend his Ibrox contract and think Williamson will have a good season with Livingston as he prepares for his first campaign of top-flight football.
