Rangers defender Nathan Patterson put on a splendid display for Scotland last night against Moldova and the 19-year-old’s performance has attracted a lot of praise on social media.
The young full-back is rated highly at the Scottish club and he showed his tremendous potential for his country last night.
However, Rangers did well to hold onto him and it could prove to be a superb decision in the long run.
The 19-year-old has the potential to develop into a top-class player for club and country and it will be interesting to see if he can hold down a regular starting berth the season.
Club captain James Tavernier has done a good job in the right-back role but Steven Gerrard will have to find a way to accommodate the highly talented 19-year-old in his starting line-up soon.
A player of his calibre needs to play regular first-team football in order to continue his development and achieve his potential.
Some of the Rangers fans are taking to Twitter to share their thoughts on the 19-year-old’s performance for his country last night and here is what they had to say.

Billy Gilmour & Nathan Patterson are gonna go on to be massive parts of Scotland’s future teams, 2 products of our youth academy. It would be great if the club keeps producing & nurturing the talent like that, & tieing them down on long term contracts, cos they’re class prospects
