Rangers 'prepare six-figure move' for history-making Premiership youngster

Rangers are set to make a move for history-making St Mirren youngster Dylan Reid, according to a report.

The Buddies midfielder became the youngest ever player to play in the Scottish Premiership in March last year when he made his debut in a 3-0 defeat at Ibrox at the age of 16 years and five days.

Reid, a Scotland youth international, is being monitored by a number of clubs, with Crystal Palace and Benfica among those credited with an interest in the highly-rated teenager.

The Daily Record report that Rangers are also keen on landing the Paisley prospect with a view to fielding him in the Lowland League as part of their B team squad.

Rangers' head of academy Craig Mulholland is believed to have watched Reid during St Mirren's friendly defeat to Northampton Town on Wednesday night with an official six-figure bid said to be in the pipeline.

The Light Blues have already secured a number of youngsters from rival Scottish clubs this summer with Bailey Rice arriving from Motherwell, Lancelot Pollard from Aberdeen, Cammy Cooper from Partick Thistle and Kieron Willox from Inverness.

Zak Lovelace, Cameron Bell and Archie Stevens have also arrived from Millwall, Everton and AFC Wimbledon respectively.
