Report: 'Unbelievable' Rangers talent to extend Ibrox contract until 2024
Glasgow Rangers talent Josh McPake is reportedly set to extend his Ibrox stay until 2024.
According to Glasgow Live, the 19-year-old will pen a two-year extension to his current contract.
McPake is currently tied to Rangers until the summer of 2022.
However, the outlet claims Steven Gerrard sees potential in the winger and wants him to commit his long-term future to Rangers.
In addition, McPake will also join English League One side Morecambe on a season-long loan, added the report.
The Shrimps have apparently seen off competition from Motherwell, Livingston, Doncaster, Oldham and Tranmere.
Silverware and league survival
McPake has come through the ranks at Auchenhowie and was Rangers’ 2018-19 Academy Player of the Year.
He has made one senior appearance for the Gers, against Gibraltar’s St Joseph in a Europa League qualifier in 2019.
McPake has also taken in loan stints at Dundee, Greenock Morton and Harrogate Town.
He helped fire the latter club to FA Trophy success, defeating Concord Rangers 1-0 in the final.
McPake netted four times in 23 appearances as Harrogate achieved a 17th-placed finish in League Two, their first ever season in the EFL.
Rangers have a player for whom the “sky is the limit”
In April, Harrogate boss Simon Weaver praised the Rangers gem.
He described McPake as “unbelievable” and tipped him for a bright future.
“His talent is unbelievable at times“, Weaver told Harrogate Town TV.
“If he combines that with full-on energy and tenacity, then the sky is the limit for him.”
