Comings and Goings at Rangers: Hutton to Jags, Perry signs on & Abelairas on trial


Rangers youngster Kyle Hutton is set to move on loan to Partick Thistle according to STV Sport, on a three-month loan deal. The midfielder was all set to go on loan to English side Sheffield United ahead of the transfer window shutting on Wednesday night, however paperwork problems caused the deal to fall through.

Rangers manager Ally McCoist confirmed that the deal has gone through and a statement from the First Division side on their official website read: “We are delighted to report that a short time ago manager Jackie McNamara was able to add to his squad with the signing, on a 93 day loan, of Rangers midfielder Kyle Hutton.”

Hutton who has made 14 appearances for Rangers since making his debut on the first weekend of last season against Kilmarnock, will go straight into the squad for Partick Thistle’s clash against Ross County tomorrow.

Meanwhile the Ibrox club have announced that Ross Perry has signed an extension to his current contract. The 21-year-old has signed a new four-year deal with the Ibrox side.

Perry is a regular with Billy Stark’s Scotland Under-21 side, and has broken into the Rangers first team this season, with a debut as a substitute against Inverness on the 13th of last month, followed by his first start against Motherwell the week after.

According to the Rangers official website, the Ibrox club have taken Argentinian midfielder Matias Abelairas on trial. The 26-year-old is a free agent after being released by River Plate.

Abelairas trained with the Rangers squad this morning and will spend a week with the SPL champions.

Manager Ally McCoist said: “He is over for us to have a look at him. He came in last night. He is 26, left-sided, played with River Plate and he is obviously out of contract. We will have a look at him over the next week or so and he will be with us all week. It’s miles away from anything other than us having a look at him and him having a look at us.”
