LIAM BURT signed a new contract at the Light Blues last week and he’s delighted to have secured his future under Mark Warburton and at the Rangers Academy.

Burt was one of seven academy players who penned new deals recently and he’s been on the bench for the first team in recent weeks, coming on to make his debut as a second half substitute.

The young attacking player caught up with RangersTV this week and he said: “It means a lot to sign with Rangers, especially having got on the pitch the other week there against Raith,”

“I want to go on and do that a lot more, and signing this new deal means I’m committed to Rangers and my focus is here for the next few years.”

Burt has been enjoying life at the Rangers Training Centre under Head of Academy Craig Mulholland and has also been involved with the first team and with Scotland at under-17 and under-19 level.

He continued: “Training and being involved with the first team is a real challenge, and I want to continue to do it as all I want to do is play first-team football.

“The changes have definitely benefited me and a number of the other players in the Academy, and it is all gearing to attacking football and keeping the ball.

“It’s an exciting time, especially for all of the youngsters. There is a pathway there and if we are doing well, we will eventually get our chance.”
