Rangers Under-18 winger Joshua McPake has revealed that he looks up to first team player Ryan Kent owing to his style of play, and has admitted that he enjoys watching the on loan Liverpool attacker play.

McPake made the switch from the Rangers Under-17 side to the Under-18 team in July last year after grabbing the headlines with a hat-trick for the Gers against Celtic in the Glasgow Cup in March.

Rangers went on to win the game 4-2 riding on McPake’s heroics and the 17-year old has progressed steadily since then.

McPake joined the club from Hibernian in 2015 and has admitted that he likes to use his pace and trickery, something Kent is known for as well.

“I am direct, tricky and have pace.

“I quite like the number 10, attacking midfield role. In the middle, you are always involved in attacks.

“I’d say Ryan Kent [the player I look up to in the Rangers first team].

"We have a similar playing style and I enjoy watching him play”, McPake said in a Twitter Q&A session.

The teenager has also revealed that he is working hard under the guidance of the Rangers youth coaches with the hope of making his Gers senior debut soon.

“I just need to keep working hard and listening to my coaches – Graeme Murty, Peter Lovenkrands and Craig Mulholland – and see what happens", McPake said.

McPake signed his first professional contract with the Gers last year and is set to remain with the club until 2020.
