The 16-year-old striker has chosen to join the Glasgow club's academy ahead of interested English Premiership clubs.

Graham featured on a number of occasions for Ross County's under-18 side and Rangers' Head of Academy Craig Mulholland was delighted he chose to pledge his future to Ibrox.

"James was in high demand from EPL clubs and another in Scotland and it is an important part of our strategy that we secure Scotland’s brightest talent first.

"It is testimony to the quality of programme and staff we now have that he has chosen Rangers ahead of some top English Academies for the next few years of his education.

“Our recruitment team and coaching staff have watched James on many occasions and he scored an excellent goal against us in the Youth Cup quarter-final.

"He is a dynamic, quick and tenacious forward with excellent energy and finishing abilities.

"As a Rangers fan, I know James can’t wait to get started and we look forward to welcoming him to the Academy in the near future.”
