Ross County are facing competition from English clubs to sign 19-year-old Ciaran Dickson after the Rangers academy graduate left Ibrox earlier this summer (Sun).

Dickson was one of several youth players to leave Ibrox this summer, despite impressing in and around Rangers’ first-team environment. The left-back spent last month on trial at English Premier League club Burnley and League One side Gillingham are also keen.

There’s an option for the left-back to remain in Scotland after Rangers. Ross County manager Malky Mackay is targeting a large number of signings as the Scottish Premiership season gets underway and Ibrox academy graduate Dickson could be one.

County brought Rangers talent Stephen Kelly on loan to Dingwall from Ibrox last summer.

Mackay’s team started their 2021/22 Premiership season with a home stalemate against League Cup and Scottish Cup holders St Johnstone on Saturday. They travel to Hibs for their second game this Sunday.
