Lowry, who has subsequently made four first team appearances, is going into the final year of his contract with the Ibrox club this summer and has been tipped for a key role in the coming seasons by his manager.

“Alex is one of the big talents that we have coming through from the Academy and we are in talks for him to sign a new contract,” said van Bronckhorst.
