A Rangers starlet has temporarily left the club, as Jack Thomson has joined League One side Clyde on loan for the rest of the season.

The 20-year-old currently plays for the Rangers Colts side. He will be tasked with helping Clyde get out of relegation in League One. At the moment they are second bottom in League One, but they have games in hand on the teams directly above.

Impressed in Glasgow Cup tie

Clyde manager Danny Lennon disclosed that he made the move for Thomson after impressing in the Glasgow Cup match between the Rangers Colts side and Clyde.

“We saw Jack close up in our recent Glasgow Cup tie, and we were very impressed. He’s keen to come to Clyde, be involved and get games under belt. I feel that he’ll add to our midfield area with the attributes he has” he said (official Clyde website).

Seems like a good move for player

The move seems like a good one for the player. At the age of 20, he will be keen to play regular football. Judging by Lennon’s comments, he will get regular game time until the end of the season.

That could stand Thomson in good stead when he returns to Rangers at the end of the season. No doubt Rangers’ staff will be keeping a close watch on how their loan players fare.

If Thomson does well with Clyde, perhaps he will get a chance to make the grade at Ibrox. For now though, the player is tasked with helping Clyde avoid relegation. He won’t be making his debut against Keith in the Scottish Cup though, as that game has been postponed.
