Rangers clarify position over McKay contract offer

Rangers have moved to clarify confusion surrounding youngster Barrie McKay's future at the club after it was reported the 17 year old had signed a five year deal. However, Scottish Football Association rules states that the registration of a player under the age of 18 cannot exceed three years.

A statement from the club read: "The club can confirm it has agreed a long-term contract with Barrie McKay.

"Reports in the press suggested the SFA would reject McKay's five-year deal as rules prevent players under the age of 18 from signing a contract of that length.

"For the avoidance of doubt, the club is well aware of the rule and at no time confirmed Barrie had signed a five-year contract.

"Barrie has pledged his future to Rangers for the next five years - as stated on the Rangers website on Tuesday evening."
