JACK THOMSON admits he would be open to a loan switch away from Rangers as he looks to make his big breakthrough at Ibrox.

The midfielder has impressed for the Under-20s once again this term and has been involved with Steven Gerrard’s first team squad.

He has yet to be rewarded with an appearance for the Light Blues, however, and could look to temporarily head for the exit door in the second half of the campaign.

Thomson told SportTimes: “That is definitely something that is a possibility for me in the second half of the season and I will look at maybe going out on loan and playing at a different club to get first team experience.

“I am not too concerned where that is, as long as I am happy and I am progressing, that is what matters the most.

“It can go either way for you, a loan move. You can go and be excited for it and then not play and end up a bit down or you can go and get valuable first team experience. That is obviously what I want to do and hopefully it works out if I do go out.

“There are a lot of us that have been here for many years, I have been here since I was five or six-years-old.

“So to finally be progressing and pushing towards the first team is brilliant and what the staff at the Academy have done for me is second to none.”
