Lowry's Maroon Delight

04 August 2023

Alex Lowry says he’s ready to test himself in a maroon jersey after completing his loan move from Rangers.


The talented 20-year-old has fast established himself as one of the brightest prospects in Scottish football, delighting spectators with his swashbuckling style of play.


After cutting his teeth within the First Team and B Team at Ibrox, the midfielder is hoping to make his mark at Hearts.


“I’m buzzing and delighted to get this done,” he told Hearts TV. “I want to get going and play in front of the fans at Tynecastle and repay Steven and Frankie’s faith in bringing me here.


“This was definitely the right place to come, the style of play really suits me. I’m very creative, my first thought is always forward. I like to play passes that not many people see. I’ll work hard for the team, and do my bit off the ball, so I can hopefully create chances in better positions.


“There just seems to be a buzz around the place. Like I said, I just want to be out playing in front of the Hearts fans as quick as possible. Hopefully it’s tomorrow against St. Johnstone but we’ll wait and see.


“I’ve been at Rangers all my life, so to step out of my comfort zone is something I’m really looking forward to. I’ve played at Tynecastle a few times and it’s always a stadium I love coming to. It’s so tight and there’s so much energy around the place – it’s a great place to play football.”
