Steven Lennon has signed a new deal at Rangers through to 2010.

The 19-year-old has set himself a target of becoming a first-team regular before the contract ends.

"You can't be too impatient when you are at a massive club like Rangers," he told the club's official website. "I could probably go out and play for another club in the SPL but it's Rangers I want to be at.

"I'm willing to wait for my chance and I'm sure it will come.

"I have had the chance to play in a few matches, sit on the bench and also train with the first team, which is fantastic.

"Simply working with guys like Davie Weir, Lee McCulloch and Barry Ferguson is terrific and you learn so much. Their experience rubs off."

Lennon made three substitute appearances for the first team last season but the arrival of Daniel Cousin and Jean-Claude Darcheville has pushed him down the pecking order.

He added: "The manager is always looking to strengthen up front but hopefully he can give me a few chances to come off the bench in the coming months and I can start scoring goals for the first team."
