FRASER Aird fulfilled a life-long dream when he earned a move to the Light Blues has a youth player.
The Toronto-born midfielder signed for the club in July 2011 and has already represented Scotland at under-17 level.
He established himself for the under-19s in his debut season and also earned a Glasgow Cup winner's medal in 2012.
Some promising displays in the early part of the 2012/13 campaign for the club's youth and reserve side earned him a call up to Ally McCoist's full squad.
After sitting on the bench in a penalty shootout defeat to Queen of the South he was handed his debut as a substitute in a 4-1 win over Montrose in September.
He then burst on to the scene with his first start in Rangers' sensational 2-0 League Cup triumph over Motherwell.
Aird turned in a particularly impressive showing that night and complemented Lee Wallace well on the left-hand side.
He then hit his first goal for the club in Gers' last-gasp 1-0 victory in front of 30,000 away fans at Hampden against Queens Park in December.
