Former Rangers defender Alan Hutton believes that the club’s teenage right-back Nathan Patterson could be pushing for a first team place within the next few months.

He’s going to push Tavernier, he looks very good and athletic, he’s got all the qualities to be a top full-back.” Based on Patterson’s performances at youth level for Rangers and his showing in the recent friendly against Lokomotiv Tashkent, it comes as little surprise that Hutton has been talking him up.



Rangers fans, do you agree with Hutton’s prediction that Patterson could push Tavernier for a first team place in the near future?



When asked by Football Insider if he has been impressed with Patterson, Hutton replied: “Yeah, definitely.

The youngster played for Steven Gerrard’s side in last weekend’s 6-1 friendly win over Lokomotiv Tashkent in Dubai and, following his performance that day, Hutton feels that he is capable of challenging first-choice right-back James Tavernier for a place in the team next season.

“He’s coming into his own that he’s wanting to put pressure on Tavernier so I think come next season he will be vying for that spot with him.

Whether the youngster will fulfil Hutton’s premonition that he will challenge Tavernier for a first team place next season remains to be seen – the Rangers captain is the second most-used player by Gerrard this term, having played 3,150 minutes and been ever-present in the Premiership and Europa League group stage.
