Rangers are interested in securing the signature of Milwall kid Zak Lovelace, according to a report.

The Daily Record claim the pacy forward is being pursued by the Ibrox club who is yet to sign professional terms.

The talented striker isn't 17 until January 2023 but has already made four appearances for the Championship club.

He made his debut on 29 December 2021 aged just  FIFTEEN after scoring 21 goals in 19 appearances for Millwall's youth teams.

Lovelace came on as a late substitute to make his debut in a 1–0 win over Coventry City and became the club's second-youngest ever player after former Rangers player Moses Ashikodi.

Lions boss Gary Rowett is keen to keep the kid around via a new contract.

He said: “The club have made it clear that we would love Zak to be part of what we do next year and on a full-time basis. That’s our aim.

“There is an inevitability, unfortunately, that some of your better young players get poached by other clubs. To a certain degree those fees are a little bit out of your hands.

“Zak is one of those, a lad who has had a bit of interest. He’ll be getting different advice and all we can do is show how much we want him here and then see what happens.

“I don’t think he has got to make a decision now. I think someone would have to be interested and essentially pay compensation for him.”
