Rangers have few recent academy graduates in the first-team but the recent emergence of Glenn Middleton has given others some hope.
Middleton is establishing himself as a regular in Steven Gerrard’s plans and the current crop of Rangers youngsters will use his success as their blueprint to reach the first-team.
Other Rangers youth players are on the fringes of the first-team, like Ross McCrorie and Serge Atakayi. And there are few promising starlets out on loan and performing well, such as Zak Rudden.
But one wonder-kid has caught the eye in recent times; can Andrew Dallas be the next Rangers academy product to follow Middleton into the first-team?
The 19-year-old would have caught Gerrard’s eye with his most recent performance for the reserve side.
Dallas scored an impressive hat-trick in a reserve game against Kilmarnock to underline how talented he is.
After scoring his treble, Dallas will hope to continue his fine run of goal scoring form to enhance his chances of a call-up.
Rangers have some crucial games coming up in December with a Europa League decider as well as their attempts to stay top of the league.
But in January, the cup clash with Cowdenbeath could be Dallas’ chance to prove himself to Gerrard.
The talented teenager might just be the next Rangers starlet to make a first-team breakthrough.
