Ex-Rangers kid ‘trains with’ top flight side to top up fitness

However, the Daily Record states the winger has been permitted to train with the Premiership side in order to top up his fitness.

Craig Levein offered the attacker training facilities, with Stirling a part-time outfit.

McPake’s contract at Rangers was terminated in September last year. He’s had spells on loan at Dundee, Morton, Harrogate, Morecambe, Tranmere and Queen’s Park.

He joined Darren Young’s side on a short-term deal last month so he could get some game time under his belt until the end of the season.

It remains to be seen what McPake’s next move with be in the summer.

Meanwhile, a pair of PSV Eindhoven fans have been given suspended prison sentences for letting off fireworks outside Rangers’ team hotel.

Rangers were drawn against the Dutch side in the 2022 Champions League play-offs and the match was delicately poised after a 2-2 draw at Ibrox in the first leg.

And two PSV fans decided to disrupt preparations for the vital tie by setting off fireworks directly outside the hotel in Eindhoven that Rangers were staying in at 2am.

The unnamed duo – who were only described as a 26-year-old man from Heezen and a 25-year-old man from North Holland – were immediately arrested and were finally up in court in Den Bosch this week.

Under Dutch law, they faced up to nine months in jail. The public prosecutor said: “The reason this was so serious is because of the type of fireworks they lit – single shot tubes that were connected together – very dangerous.

“These improvised fireworks can go in any direction. You light it, run away and don’t know what’s going to happen. This really does not fall into the category of just mischief.”
