The youngster has been on the books at Hearts since signing from Scotland Boys Club 05s in 2015.

His performances as he rose through the age groups alerted last season’s Scottish Premiership champions, who have persuaded him his future lies at Ibrox.

Rangers will pay Hearts an undisclosed amount as a training compensation fee to complete the signing of the defender.
