Rangers Under-17’s booked their spot in the semi-finals of the ALKASS International Cup courtesy of a 7-0 win over Ecoile Sportive du Sahel on Sunday.
Chris McKee and Nathan Young-Coombes both scored hat-tricks for Rangers and it seems that the latter has caught the attention of the club’s supporters.
Young-Coombes only joined Rangers from Chelsea in January, with the 16-year-old signing a contract with the Gers until the summer of June 2021.
Pl>ymaker FC’s Matchday with Max caught up with Jamaica’s women’s team. See what happened when he met the history makers in the video below…
It would be fair to say that the Rangers supporters think a lot of the teenager, with many taking to social media to lavish praise on his performance at the weekend.
Indeed, one fan even claimed that Young-Coombes should be given the nod in the first team ahead of fellow January arrival Jermain Defoe.
It seems unlikely that the teenager will be making his first-team debut any time soon, but he will surely be in the mind of head coach Steven Gerrard moving forward.
A selection of the Twitter reaction from the Rangers fans can be seen below:
Young Coombes looks like an amazing prospect for the future

Increased funding for the youth team is paying off. Young-Coombes recently signed from Chelsea was superb.
