Report: Rangers talent wanted by Premier League club, he’s a ‘big’ player who’s ‘good technically’

Glasgow Rangers academy defender Kyle McClelland is currently away from Ibrox on loan.

The 19-year-old came through the ranks at Rangers, earning promotion from the Under-18s to the reserves in the summer.

In March, McClelland joined League One side Falkirk on loan until the end of the season, where he has made two appearances.

The teenager has also been capped for Northern Ireland at Under-19 level, winning five caps.

 

According to the Scottish Sun, English top-flight side Southampton are planning to monitor his progress for the rest of the campaign ahead of a potential move.

Saints are reportedly also keeping tabs on Celtic youngster Leo Hjelde, who is on loan with Premiership strugglers Ross County.

TBR View:

McClelland is a promising talent at Ibrox, a “big defender” who’s “also good technically”, according to Falkirk co-manager David McCracken.

Though he still looks like he needs a bit more experience before aiming for the Gers first team, he’s certainly got plenty of potential, and it remains to be seen whether the Ibrox coaches would want to let him go.
