Rangers Clash With Leeds United For Signing This Youngster: Why The Gers Has To Get It Done

As per one of the latest reports to have surfaced, Rangers are closely monitoring Heart of Midlothian’s talented youngster, Harry Cochrane. However, they might have to battle Leeds United in their quest of signing Cochrane as it is perceived that the Whites have also put him on their radar.

He is undoubtedly one of the finest starlets in the Scottish football at this stroke of hour and no wonder why some top clubs have already started to queue up to make him sign on the dotted line. Although he is still a raw talent, his passing, movements and ability to read the game meticulously have been appealing to watch.

Cochrane emerged through the youth ranks of Hearts and rose to prominence very swiftly. The 16-year-old signed his first pro contract with them in the summer and played a key role in the pre-season friendly games of the Jambos. He plays to his strengths and considering that he is young, he has time to brush himself adequately.

He has really impressed ever since he was handed his senior debut in September and has accumulated 5 appearances for himself in the Scottish Premiership so far this season. A midfielder by trade, he has shown immense maturity and calmness and has the ingredients to be a galvanizing name in the near future. It would be ideal for him to continue his developmental process in Scotland and Rangers should pay the right price to lure him to the Ibrox Stadium if they get any chance of doing so.

The Gers are going through a phase of ramification and after they sacked Pedro Caixinha last month. While Graeme Murty has been handed the role of the interim manager, it goes without saying that finding a permanent manager is at the back of the mind of the board. They are currently placed at the 4th spot in the league table with 24 points to their name after 12 games.

Once they acquire Caixinha’s heir, they should be turning their attention towards making some astute signings and Cochrane should be one of the names in their wish-list. Rangers lost one of their finest blossoming talents in the shape of Billy Gilmour to Chelsea in the summer and someone like Cochrane could be a decent replacement.

The gap between the Light Blues and their arch-rivals, Celtic, is rising with every passing day and to curtail the same, they would need players who can help them in the process in the short run as well as in the long run. Rangers do not have the financial muscle similar to the Celts at this moment. Thus, they might have to rebuild themselves by signing youngsters with potential and it seems that Cochrane would be a perfect fit for them.
