Scottish First Division promotion hopefuls Partick Thistle have taken Rangers youngster Steven Lennon on loan until January 26.
The striker has been allowed to leave Ibrox in order to pick up valuable first-team experience.

Thistle will be hoping that the 20-year-old bolsters their attacking threat, as they managed just 40 goals in 36 Scottish First Division games last season.

They finished sixth last term, but have started the 2008/09 campaign in positive fashion, picking up maximum points from their opening two fixtures.

Lennon was deemed surplus to requirements at Rangers due to the Glasgow giants' burgeoning array of strikers.

Kyle Lafferty, Kenny Miller and Andrius Velicka were all signed over the summer, joining the likes of Kris Boyd, Jean Claude Darcheville, Daniel Cousin, Steven Naismith and Nacho Novo, who were already at the club.

Having decided to try his luck elsewhere, Lennon is expected to be in the Partick squad for their game with Queen of the South on Sunday.

Meanwhile, Rangers have also allowed 19-year-old keeper Mark Weir to join Kilmarnock on loan until January 1.
