Rangers’ U17 side are currently competing at the ALKASS International Cup and supporters will naturally be intrigued by how the next generation of talent get on in Qatar.
The youngsters have played two games so far, recording a 3-2 victory over Suwon Samsung and a 4-4 draw with Aspire Academy.
One player who has particularly caught the eye is Charlie Lindsay, who notched a 92nd minute goal to clinch the win against Suwon Samsung.
According to The Athletic’s Jordan Campbell, he has won two man of the match awards at the tournament and is due to officially move to Ibrox from Glentoran in the summer.
You might have seen Charlie Lindsay has won two man of the match awards out at the #AlkassIntlCup2020.
The 16 year-old will officially join Rangers from Glentoran in the summer.

And if the conversation amongst Rangers fans on Twitter is anything to go by, they are already expecting big things from the 15-year-old.
Definitely looks like he could step straight into the development squad.

Sneakily watched that today. My work is lucky to have me. Looks really good. Also liked the left back and the wee tiny guy in centre mid could be really good if he takes a stretch.

It appears that his ability to strike a dead ball has particularly caught the eye of this supporter.
For those not so well versed in the lingo, TheCrispola is expecting the prodigy to stick a few stunning free-kicks into the back of the net…
The lads free kick was worldy material. looks prospect.

Finally, this fan suggested that Rangers have pulled a similar stunt to the one Chelsea pulled on them to secure the signing of Billy Gilmour.
Gilmour was one of the most outstanding talents residing within Rangers’ youth set up before he was snatched away by the Blues in 2017, and the fact the 18-year-old has already made two Premier League appearances speaks volumes about his ability to establish himself at the top level.
If Lindsay is in any way comparable to Gilmour, the Gers faithful sure have plenty to look forward to…
It seems we’ve done to Glentoran with Lindsay, what Chelsea done to Rangers with Gilmour. I don’t get too excited about players at that age as they have a long way to go before they can make an impact at first team level but seems likely that SOMEONE will break through soon.
