EIGHT Rangers Academy players will depart the club this summer to play their football elsewhere next season.

Dylan Dykes, Luca Gasparotto, David Brownlie, Darren Ramsay, Mekhi McLeod, Jamie Brandon, Tom Lang and Jamie Mills who all played in the clubs development squad this year or on loan will now develop their footballing careers at another club.

Head of Academy, Craig Mulholland commented: “It is always a difficult time of year when informing players that they will no longer be at the club.

“Some of the lads such as Dylan, Darren and the two Jamie’s have been with the club from a very young age and it is an emotional time for the staff and the players.

“We wish all the boys well in their future careers.”
