Rangers youngster Josh McPake is poised to complete a loan move from Ibrox to Greenock Morton this week.

The Light Blues kid has been on David Hopkin's radar and the Ton boss hopes to finalise the deal. Herald and Times Sport understands it could be completed this week with Gers giving the green light.

McPake, 19, has been watched by Linfield and Ayr United in recent times but it is understood his parent club want him playing at the highest level possible to give him the best chance of returning with experience under his belt in the Championship.

The attacking midfielder spent time on loan at Dundee last year, playing seven games including four times off the bench. He made his top team debut for Rangers in Europa League action against St Joseph's at the beginning of last season.

McPake is under contract at Ibrox until 2022.
