Rangers Secure Future: Ross McCausland Commits to Long-Term Deal
The 20-year-old, who grew up rooting for the Rangers, has become a fan favourite at Ibrox and is regarded as one of the team’s best prospects.
McCausland, who reportedly paid £60,000 to join the Gers’ academy in 2019, came from Northern Irish team Linfield. He progressed through the club’s juvenile ranks before making his senior debut in May of the previous year.
Since then, the attacker has made nine first-team appearances for Rangers this season, including six since Philippe Clement took over as head coach in October.
In spite of a 4-0 loss to Finland earlier this month, McCausland received his maiden cap for Northern Ireland during Euro 2024 qualifying and was voted Man of the Match.
The young player has reportedly drawn interest from several clubs in England and Europe, but after agreeing to new conditions on a new contract, he has chosen to dedicate his future to Rangers.
Regarding his new contract, McCausland stated on the Rangers’ official website: “I’m incredibly happy to have worked out this new agreement with the club.
It’s no secret that I like the Rangers, and I had no doubts about wanting to dedicate my future here for the long haul.
“I’m extremely grateful to the new manager for giving me an opportunity in recent weeks, and I want to repay him and everyone at the club with my performances on the pitch in the years to come.”
Clement went on, “I think Ross has come a long way in the last few weeks, and he deserves this new deal.
“I’ve made it plain that young players who exhibit the necessary traits and work ethic will be given opportunities at this club, and Ross has done just that.
“Ross is a talented young player, and I think it is an important step from the club to move to secure his future here.”
McCausland is anticipated to be a member of the matchday roster on Thursday when Rangers host Aris Limassol in the Europa League group stage.
