Rangers youngster Kyle Hutton believes the club's up and coming talent have what it takes to impress if senior stars are released as part of cost-cutting measures.
Hutton, 21, is currently on loan with Dunfermline and is acutely aware of the ability of the rising talent at Ibrox, having played alongside the likes of Gregg Wylde, Ross Perry and Kane Hemmings.
Those youngsters could be given a more prominent role between now and the summer if manager Ally McCoist loses any first-team players following the club's decision to enter administration.
Gers are likely to make cuts in the coming weeks and Hutton sees no reason why the club's budding stars of the future would not sieze their opportunity.
"If the young boys are needed they are good enough to do a job," Hutton told the Daily Record.
"A few of us broke through last season like myself, Gregg Wylde, Ross Perry and Kane Hemmings. There are also plenty of others who can come in and do well.
"It might be a worry for people with kids having to come in but I'm confident they would be absolutely fine.
"I've not been back to Murray Park as I'm trying to keep my mind off what's happening at Gers to focus on Dunfermline.
"I can't go back to play because I have already turned out for Partick Thistle and Dunfermline this season. So I'll be in Fife until the end of the campaign.
"Are the boys fearing for their jobs? I'm not sure - I've only spoken to a few of them briefly. I suppose it's good that I'm out on loan. I'm concentrating on Dunfermline while the rest of the boys are consumed by it."
