Rangers youngster Lewis Mayo is expected to be loaned out by the club for the remainder of the season in order to gain first-team experience.

According to the Daily Record, the teenager trained with Rangers’ first team squad in Dubai in recent days but is set to go out on loan for the next few months.

The Daily Record reported that the 19-year-old defender is wanted on loan by Partick Thistle, who have been in discussions with the ‘Gers about a possible deal for the youngster.

A loan move to Partick Thistle would seem to be in the best interests of both Mayo and Rangers, as the youngster should be more likely to get his first taste of senior football in the Championship and the Ibrox club could get back a more experienced and confident young defender if his planned loan spell at Firhill goes positively.

With Mayo only making the first team squad once all season (six months ago) and still waiting on a senior debut, his prospects of senior minutes at Rangers have looked unlikely for some time.

While Mayo has yet to make his competitive senior debut, he has appeared frequently for Rangers’ development side this season, captaining the team for three games in their UEFA Youth League campaign and also playing several matches in the Scottish Challenge Cup.

That he trained with the first team in Dubai indicates that Gerrard has some faith in him, but with the manager rarely turning to youngsters in competitive fixtures, Mayo should benefit from getting valuable first-team experience elsewhere before pushing strongly for a place at Rangers.
