Rangers academy chief Craig Mullholland is delighted with their deal for Charlie McCann.

McCann has arrived in a permanent deal from Manchester United.

Mulholland explained: "We are delighted to recruit Charlie in our emerging talent space. Our recruitment team lead by Andy Scoulding and David Stevenson have been tracking Charlie for some time, know him very well and we see clear attributes which fit with the playing identity shared across the first team and our Professional Development Phase.

"Charlie will now develop initially in our B Team, being exposed to competitive men's football in front of large numbers of Rangers fans, and learn the style and identity we require from our players under David and Brian. Ross Wilson was really clear when he joined that in order to create a modern winning Rangers that we develop the best talent through our Academy, as Nathan Patterson did from the age of 8, but also recruit the best emerging talent externally, and Charlie absolutely fits this bill.

"He has an excellent personality which, having met his parents, is driven from a strong family unit and this will allow Charlie to embrace the high quality environment, staff and provision we now have at Rangers. We all wish Charlie well as he starts his exciting Rangers journey."

Gers manager Steven Gerrard also stated: "It will be a B-team signing but as a management team if it happens we will follow him really closely and analyse where he's at and once he's ready for an opportunity it will certainly present itself."
