Rangers Sign Youth Trio

Scottish Premier Rangers

For those of you that wanted to know about these players - here's taken from the official website -

THE Rangers youth department has been busy securing the services of three promising foreign players in the past 48 hours.

Swedish under-19 international Isa Bagci was first to put pen to paper on a three-year deal yesterday.

The talented striker, who is still only 17, signed from Gothenburg side BK Hacken, the club which put Dunfermline out of the UEFA Cup on Thursday night.

He will be joined at Murray Park by goalkeeper Arturs Vaiculis.

The Latvian shotstopper, who has been given a two-year contract, started his career at Skonto Riga but moved to Scotland during the 2006/07 season to play for St. Mirren's under-19s and was a stand-out for the Buddies.

The club was also delighted to sign Norwegian international Thomas Kind Bendiksen from Harstad IL last night.

Bendikesen, 18, is seen as being one of the hottest prospects in his homeland and, after completing a medical at Auchenhowie, expressed his delight at his new three-year deal.

He said: "This is like a dream come true.

"I had two good offers from Tromso and Rangers but the lure of a foreign club was too tempting.

"It will be very tough to break into the first-team but I will do everything I can to do so."

Bendikesen is an International already??? Thats quite impressive, hopefully he has a bright future here, but we certainly seem to have a huge number of potential stars coming through at the moment... Fleck, Bendikesen, Naismith, Lennon, Furman, Efrem, Shinnie, Robinson and the other new boys Vaiculus and Bagci...

The future really is bright... lets hope Smiths found another Gattuso or two here...
