Rangers kid with ‘bags of potential’ makes loan switch to Clyde

Rangers youngster Matthew Shiels has signed a loan deal with Clyde in League One.

The 19-year-old defender becomes The Bully Wee’s second new recruit of the summer joining Jamie Bain at Broadwood.

The left-back joins the Cumbernauld club on a deal until the end of the 2020-21 campaign.

Boss Danny Lennon heaped praise on the prospect, who has also enjoyed spells at Dumbarton and Edinburgh City, after his arrival.

He told the club website : “Matthew is a young man with bags of potential to do well in football and he can continue his excellent progress with hard work and focused application at Clyde this season.

“We look forward to playing our part in his development as a quality left back.

“He has 10 caps at under-19 International level and, crucially, he has already had experience of first team football on loan at Edinburgh City two seasons ago and at Dumbarton last season.”
