Rangers to review loan policy

Rangers loan policy is under scrutiny after several Gers youngsters endured frustrating spells away from Ibrox last season. Reserve team coach Tommy Wilson admits there is no point sending youngsters out to sit on the bench at other clubs.

"The response has been quite mixed," Wilson told Rangers World.

"Some of the lads have gone out and played regularly and gained from it. Other players have gone out and not featured.

"We played Celtic reserves without Steven Kinniburgh, who went to St Johnstone and never kicked a ball, and had to play a 16-year-old.

"The loan thing is something that, together with the first-team staff, we will review thoroughly.

"It's never going to be perfect but we need players to go and play more regularly for the first team.

"Dean Furman is a good example of how it should work - he went to Bradford and had a fine season down there at a good standard.

"We might need to be more selective in terms of where we send the boys and get more guarantees from the clubs.

"I imagine next year the first-team squad is smaller, so there might be less opportunities for players to go out on loan."
