Given his age and lack of senior football, he will initially join up with the Light Blues’ development squad but that hasn’t stopped fans getting excited at his potential already.
With seven Scotland U19 caps, he’s tipped to have a bright future in the game and has directly contributed to five goals for Norwich’s U23s side this season where wingers like Jacob and Josh Murphy have made their name in recent years.
Fans who have seen him in action were quick to praise the club for the signing, believing he has the skills required to make a big impact at Ibrox over the coming months and years.
Others are just happy to see the club secure a promising young Scottish player who supports the club.
Supporters took to Twitter to share their thoughts…
delighted with this signing! I've seen him play for Scotland under-19s, he's brilliant!
