A report from Football Insider has claimed that League One pair Doncaster Rovers and Bristol Rovers are among the sides to have enquired about a possible loan deal for Rangers youngster Josh McPake, who could be allowed to make a loan move away from Ibrox before the window ends.

Football Insider has said that Rangers boss Steven Gerrard will leave it up to winger Josh McPake to decide whether he wants to remain at Ibrox to fight for a place in the first-team or head out on loan, with a number of sides said to be interested in bringing him in on loan.

Scottish duo St Johnstone and Ross County are both keen on signing McPake on loan, with League One pair Doncaster Rovers and Bristol Rovers also said to have made initial approaches asking about a possible deal for the young winger.

McPake is highly-rated by the coaches at Rangers and having made his senior debut for the club earlier this summer in the Europa League qualifying stages, it is said that he could be in and around the first-team picture at Ibrox. He made his debut in the Gers’ 6-0 thrashing of St Joseph’s earlier this summer, coming off the bench to play 23 minutes.

But, the 17-year-old will decide if he wants to stay with Rangers to fight for first-team minutes or make a move away on loan to further his development and get more senior experience under his belt. Should he opt to make a move away, it will be interesting to see where McPake moves, with Doncaster Rovers and Bristol Rovers among those said keen.
