John Fleck

Recommended Posts

I have heard from a couple of my Ranger's friends that McCoist is pretty sure that their starlet attacking midfielder, up at Rangers, John Fleck is possible for a move to Chelsea?

Not sure about this, but just putting it out there to see if this garners any interest!

There are no rumours about specific clubs up here Scott however there is general talk that Rangers may struggle to keep hold of him as he has a lot of potential and Rangers need cash pronto.

wouldn't want to see fleck leave rangers. disappointed he hasn't got more playing time this season because he does look like a quality player

with regards rangers needing the cash, i would be happy to see ferguson go. he is the scottish league version of ballack (jogs around like he owns the place misplacing passes all over the show). overrated and i really don't see what he adds to the team. sell ferguson, bring thompson and mendes in the middle or shift stevie davis in until thompson is back and fleck/novo on the wing. ferguson isn't needed

Share the same feelings mate. I would be sad to see Fleck go. He would be much better off at Rangers, he can start some games...but I wish he would start more.

I watched it - wasn't hins finest performance for Rangers. Started well enough showed he has a good left foot and his set pieces are good. However decision making a but erratic today however he is only 17 and Aberdeen are the form team in Scotland just now.

his delivery from set pieces was excellent. like you said his decision making can improve. serious potential there

doesn't look the quickest though

he came on as a sub last night against falkirk as well. hopefully he's gonna get a decent run in the side now

Rangers need money and need it fast. They don't need a youth player who frankly doesn't look like amounting to much. Fleck is probably the brightest prospect to come through Rangers' youth system for many years. If they have to sell him the fans will be very disappointed but they will be far angrier if they swap him for someone who offers the team nothing.

There are a few minutes of highlights of Rangers win over Dundee Utd on the BBC website just now (won't be on for long)

Fleck is playing and gets his first Rangers goal from the spot for anyone who is intersted.

Cheers for that, Loz!

John Fleck looks as impressive as his reputation has suggested, he's certainly not afraid to have a shot on goal. And for a 17-year old to have the confidence to take a penalty in a crucial game when the scores are still level speaks volumes - I reckon he's gonna be something special.

Having said that, his uncle Robert was a prolific goalscorer in Rangers youth & reserve teams, looked awesome, and he still produced the goods when he went to Norwich. Somehow it all went wrong when he came to Chelsea, not sure why - hope his nephew is more successful, particularly if he comes to Chelsea.

My mate was at the game Steve and it wasn't just a case of having confidence to take it - I don't think anyone was getting a look in from the moment the penalty was awarded. With regular penalty taker Boyd off the pitch, there was apparently no way Fleck was letting anyone else take it.

He got fouled for the penalty and got straight up and grabbed the ball and said he was taking it. He had another good game the other night against AC Milan aswell.

FACTS: Youngest ever player to appear in a British Cup final.

Sky Sports Scout Ratings:

0-10 - No hoper

11-20 - Should look elsewhere

21-30 - Might not make it

31-40 - Has work to do

41-50 - Keep an eye on him

Up this week for the scout is Rangers' John Fleck who was recommended by Sky Sports reader Stewart Johnsen.

The scout reports...

John Fleck has long been tipped to make a big impact at Rangers and he is now starting to show that could be a huge star of the future.

The nephew of former Rangers star Robert, Fleck was long talked about because of his family connections - but he is now showing that he could very well be something special.

A muscular forward is very similar in build and style to Wayne Rooney, which has seen the media draw similarities between the duo, and Fleck himself admits he would love to become Scotland's version of the Manchester United star.

He has been in and around the first-team squad since he was 16 and became the youngest-ever player to appear in a British Cup final when he came on as a substitute in Rangers' 2008 Scottish Cup victory over Queen of the South.

He has benefited from the Rangers staff nurturing him rather than throwing him in straight away. He fired his first goal for the club in January and now looks set to compete for a regular starting berth.

Indeed, his impact with the Rangers first-team has seen calls for his inclusion in Scotland's senior squad - despite being just 17.

The scout says...

Fleck has benefited from Walter Smith's guidance, he has not been rushed and is now coming through at a steady pace - although he could very well make it impossible for him not to be a first-team regular within the next few months.

The next few years will be vital for Fleck and will show whether he will be able to live up to his tag of one of the best young players in Europe - a label not many young Scottish players have had in recent times.
