Aaron Ramsey’s time at Rangers may have been disappointing but it seems he left his mark on a number of the youngsters at the club.

Speaking to the Daily Record, Ranger’s 18-year-old Alex Lowry was full of praise for Aaron Ramsey as the former Arsenal man faces yet another crossroads in his career.

Getting ready to make his debut for Scotland’s u21’s, Lowry hailed Ramsey’s example during his short time at Ibrox.

“I don’t think the last few weeks have really sunk in with the Europa League Final and my first Scotland Under 21s call-up,” Lowry said.

“I’m just trying to take it and use it. But it has been a whirlwind couple of months.

“I’ve spoken to Giovanni van Bronckhorst and his staff and they think it’s brilliant that I am here and it’s a great opportunity.

“At Rangers, Aaron was amazing to learn from. He has played at such a high level throughout his career.

“To learn from him was amazing. It was great to learn too from Joe Aribo and Ryan Kent, to name a few, in my position.

“Learning from them has been so good for me. I’ve picked up lots of small things that make a massive difference.

“Aaron was great with a lot of the younger boys who came up.

“He spoke to me a lot and all the rest of the younger players were just watching him, just the way he conducted himself and how good he was in training.

“You were like, ‘Wow, he is a top player.’

“Taking stuff from his game and trying to put it in my own was great for me. Seville was amazing for me as an 18-year-old boy going over.

“The result wasn’t brilliant, of course, but what an experience it was for me and my career.”

Ramsey still has a year left on his Juventus contract but there is talk that they want to cancel it to move him on.

Rangers are not interested in making Ramsey’s loan deal permanent after injuries plagued his time in Scotland, limiting the impact he could have on the pitch.
