Despite all their agony and anguish, Rangers ended the decade on a positive note defeating Celtic at Parkhead. Steven Gerrard’s men are determined to redeem the lost glory and the squad overhaul since the inception of the previous campaign is finally paying off in terms of consistency and outcome.
However, the gaffer has struggled to promote the youth in order to achieve immediate success in Govan and according to latest reports, he might lose a couple of his academy prodigies who are rated highly rated.
Zak Rudden, currently on loan at Plymouth Argyle, is closing in on a permanent switch to Partick Thistle (Plymouth Herald understands), whereas 15-year-old Leon King is drawing the attention of an array of Premier League heavyweights as per the Scottish Sun.
Why Rudden Does Not Have A Future At Rangers
The Scotland youth international was touted to be one of the Gers’ most promising prospects having impressed with his scoring return for the reserves. He was sent on loan to Falkirk last season and found the net 12 times in the league despite the Bairns failing to retain their Championship status. But a knee injury hampered his run at Home Park as the 19-year-old scored only a couple of goals in 14 League Two outings since joining the Pilgrims in summer.
Rudden’s career stalled over the past few months, and he needs a fresh start elsewhere to regain the lost charm. The quality in Rangers’ frontline would see him find a place way down the pecking order and the teenager, therefore, should fancy a move to Partick Thistle who are fighting for their survival.
Why King’s Exit Would Be A Significant Blow In The Long Run
Rangers have an esteemed academy where the players grow and develop their game to shine for the seniors. King is labelled as a generational talent which led to interest from the likes of Arsenal, Newcastle United, Leicester City, Chelsea, Liverpool as well as Manchester City. He will turn 16 next week but has already turned down a contract offer to commit his future at Ibrox. Although the Bears have not yet given up on the teenager, the two parties are still some way off from agreeing to new terms.
This has alerted the English hotshots who are aware of the situation and are willing to explore the opportunity to enrich their youth ranks. In our opinion, Gerrard needs to use all the charm and expertise in his arsenal to convince King to stay.
