RANGERS are today delighted to announce striker Ryan Hardie has signed a one-year extension to his current contract.

Hardie, who came through the club’s Academy, spent the latter half of last season on-loan at Livingston, with his nine goals there helping them into the play-offs, from which they were eventually promoted to the Scottish Premiership.

He has been a regular in various Scotland age groups through the years, right though to the under-21s where he plays now.

His first-team debut came back in season 2014/15, and on his first start, he netted a double in a 3-1 win away to Dumbarton.

His career since then has seen him enjoy two loan spells with Raith Rovers and a stint in Paisley with St Mirren.

Meanwhile, Rangers Academy are delighted to confirm that under-20 player Serge Atakayi has signed a one year extension to his contract through until 2020.

The Academy are also pleased to have signed under-17 player, Kai Kennedy, on a professional contract through until 2021.
