Light Blues forward Dean Shiels has praised the Rangers Youth Development Company for their continued commitment to Rangers Football Club’s Youth Department. Level5 arranged a photocall and media conference at Murray Park promoting RYDC.
The Rangers Youth Development Company, which is independent from the Club, was established in 1964 and rebranded last month at a media conference attended by Manager Mark Warburton, Youth Academy Head Craig Mulholland and first-team youngster Andy Murdoch.
Since 2002 profits have been directed to the Club’s youth programme – with more than £5.5 million provided in the last decade – and Shiels says their income is greatly appreciated.
He commented: “The Rangers Youth Development Company has backed the Club’s youth programme for decades and we are all very grateful for their continued commitment.
“A host of past and present youth players like Danny Wilson, Charlie Adam, Alan Hutton, Ryan Hardie, Andy Murdoch, Tom Walsh and Chris Burke have directly benefitted and I am delighted to lend my support. So many Rangers fans take part in their revenue generating initiatives every week and the supporters also deserve great credit for backing the Club.”
Rangers fans can support the Rangers Youth Development Company in a variety of ways – full details on Rangers Lotto, Rising Stars, Scratchcards, Stadium Bricks and other initiatives can be found at www.rangerslotto.co.uk.
