Another rising star signing-on at Rangers is 16-year-old attacking midfielder Ciaran Heeps, who was previously in the youth systems of Hutchison Vale and Rangers and will now officially join the club in the summer.

Heeps has been training with the club since September 2020 and was set to agree terms earlier in the season only for the campaign to be put on hold due to Covid-19.
