Swansea City and Scotland international striker Oli McBurnie has revealed that he would like to one day play for Glasgow giants Rangers according to The Scottish Sun.

The 22-year-old Leeds-born frontman is an avid Rangers fan with McBurnie having supported the club as a youngster.

In an Instagram feature with the player, McBurnie was asked whether he would like to play for Rangers in the future and the striker showed little hesitation in confirming that he dreams of one day pulling on that famous blue shirt.

Despite representing Scotland at international level, McBurnie is yet to play club football north of the border.

The player started his senior career at Bradford City before being snapped up by Swansea City in summer 2015 for an undisclosed fee. McBurnie has had to wait for first team opportunities at The Liberty Stadium but has now made the breakthrough this term with the striker having already made 15 appearances for The Swans in which he has netted six goals.

During his time out of favour in South Wales, McBurnie has been sent out on loan on three occasions. The forward spent short spells with both Newport County and Bristol Rovers during the 2015/2016 campaign before being sent to Barnsley last season.

McBurnie netted nine goals for The Tykes despite their struggles in the Sky Bet Championship in 2017/2018 and he is continuing to show his class at that level with parent club Swansea City this season.
