Rangers Football Club are delighted to announce that Josh McPake has signed a new contract at the club.
The 19-year-old impressed in EFL League Two last season as he made 21 appearances while on loan at Harrogate Town following a successful spell in the Scottish Championship where he made 17 appearances for Dundee and Greenock Morton.
The winger has now committed his future to Rangers until summer 2024 and will head back out on loan to newly-promoted EFL League One side Morecambe, with a recall option in January.
Speaking to RangersTV after signing the new deal, McPake said: “I am very pleased, I have worked really hard for it and I am delighted to extend my contract here.
“I loved my loan time at Harrogate last season, moving away from home was difficult under the circumstances but I think I have really matured and really found myself.”
Head of Academy Craig Mulholland commented: “We are delighted that Josh has extended his contract and now moves up a league in England from EFL 2 to EFL 1.
“He has matured massively in the last 12 months as a person and as a player and this is reflected in significant improvements to his physical conditioning and his performance levels in competitive first-team football, albeit we still think there is lots to come.
“There were a number of options available to Josh, however we believe moving to League One and playing against some big clubs provides the correct challenge which he needs to meet head on in order to contribute to success at his loan club and impress the manager here at Rangers.
“Everyone at the club wishes him well on this next important step in his journey.”
