Philippe Clement Confirms Loan Plans for Alex Lowry with a Focus on Player Development

Rangers manager Philippe Clement has announced that the club has a clear plan for 20-year-old attacker Alex Lowry to leave on loan once again, emphasizing the importance of the player’s development through consistent playing time.

Lowry had been on loan at Hearts since the summer, with the initial agreement set to keep him there until the end of the season under the management of Steven Naismith. However, the loan was unexpectedly cut short at Tynecastle, leading to Lowry’s return to Glasgow. Naismith explained that the decision was made in the best interest of the player, citing Lowry’s struggle for regular game time during his stint at Hearts.

In confirmation of the plan, Clement stated, “The clear plan with Alex is we want him on loan to get minutes this season. We want him to go on loan and get stronger by playing regular games. We will see what is the best place for him to go and develop.”

The manager’s comments indicate the club’s commitment to Lowry’s growth and the recognition of the importance of loan spells for young players to gain valuable experience. As the Gers embark on finding a new loan destination for Lowry, the focus remains on securing an environment that will facilitate the player’s development through consistent playing opportunities.
