Lowry returns to Rangers

19 January 2024

Heart of Midlothian can confirm that Alex Lowry has returned to Rangers.


The forward had been on loan from the Ibrox side since August of last year, making 17 appearances in maroon and scoring one goal.


He now heads back to Glasgow to continue his development.


Speaking to the Official Hearts Website, head coach Steven Naismith said: “We took the decision to end the loan with Alex’s best interests in mind.


“There is absolutely no doubting Alex’s talents as a player, and he’s shown in periods what he’s capable of doing on the pitch.


“But with the competition for places fierce in our squad, he’s probably not going to get the game time that would allow him to develop further, which is one of the reasons he was here in the first place.


“I’ve no doubt he’ll go on to become a top player. He’s a great boy, we thank him for all his efforts at Hearts and wish him well for the future.”
