Rangers chose to release youngster Harris O’Connor this summer, and he now has a chance to earn a contract with Hibernian.
That’s according to the Daily Record, who claim that Hibs have taken O’Connor on trial ahead of a potential deal.
O’Connor has spent time on trial with three English clubs over the summer, having learned of his Rangers release.
Stoke City, Burnley and Sheffield United have all had a look at O’Connor, with some of them yet to even make a final decision on signing him.
Hibernian are now taking a look at O’Connor, with the defender feeling that he couldn’t pass up the opportunity to train with Jack Ross’s men.
O’Connor will spend this week with Hibs, possibly offering a cheaper – but less experienced – option instead of St Johnstone’s Jamie McCart.
O’Connor, 19, had a loan spell with Brechin City earlier this year, but left Rangers without ever making his first-team debut for the club.
Formerly on the books at Kilmarnock and Charlton Athletic, O’Connor is now looking for a new home – and he could end up playing against Rangers with Hibs if all goes well.
