Rangers U16s are continuing their extremely impressive start to the 2019/20 season, at the Istria Youth Cup in Croatia. Despite being drawn in a difficult group against some high profile opposition, the youngsters have come out on top. In the opening Group A fixture on Tuesday, the Young Gers swept aside two-time European Cup-winning club…

Over the last year has there been a more successful academy? One for the journalists to look into.

One of those ones that’s hard to say for certain either way because there are so many different youth tournaments going on at any one time with each one featuring different academies.

Great success the whole way through the system recently, though. Last season there was the U17s winning the Alkass Cup, the U18s winning the Youth Cup and the Reserves winning the league.

This year the U16s have been outstanding and the Colts have done well in the Challenge Cup. If there are many clubs winning more silverware across all age groups I’d be surprised!
