Bio Extra

Having just turned 18, this Rangers Youth Academy midfielder joined League One side East Fife on loan in the springtime of 2021. He made nine league appearances for the Fifers, his first being a late substitute appearance in a 3–1 win away to Clyde on the 20th March 2021. He made excellent progress with David McCallum’s Rangers B in their inaugural Lowland League campaign of 2021-22, making massive contributions to their UEFA Youth League, SPFL Trust Trophy and Glasgow Cup successes. Was voted the players player of the year and represented Scotland at U19 level in the European Championship qualifiers. His memorable season was finished in some style when he made his senior debut for Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s side at Tynecastle in May, netting his first competitive goal for the first team. In June 2022, Cole was rewarded with a new three year deal at Rangers and a season-long loan deal at Firhill was arranged just a few weeks later. Looked very promising and accomplished for large spells, and was a mainstay in the first half of the season under Ian McCall, but the youngster had to contend himself with mainly having a place on the bench under Kris Doolan.
