Brentford are reportedly plotting a second free transfer raid on the Rangers academy.

The Premier League club previously signed Nathan Young-Coombes from the Ibrox youth set-up.

The striker joined Brentford in 2022 having spent time in the Rangers academy after moving from Chelsea in 2019. 

Young-Coombes regularly featured for Rangers B and the youth sides but never made a first-team appearance before his switch to Brentford.

Now, the Premier League outfit have been credited with an interest in Rangers kid MacKenzie Strachan.

The Daily Record reports Brentford are eyeing another possible swoop for a Rangers starlet with Strachan out of contract in the summer and free to leave Ibrox.

It's claimed Brentford are keen to recruit Strachan to their development squad for next season.

Midfielder Strachan, 20, had been on loan at Stranraer for the first half of the season but returned to Rangers in January.

It comes as fellow Auchenhowie youth prospect James Graham could leave the club to join Dumbarton on loan.

Graham had spent the first half of the season on loan at League One club Annan Athletic where he played 13 times before being recalled to Ibrox last month.

The striker also played four times for Rangers B in the Challenge Cup this season, scoring one goal.

Now, Graham is expected to make the switch to Dumbarton to join Stevie Farrell's squad.
