Hearts Midfielder Harry Cochrane Reveals He Always Dreamed of Playing at Ibrox as a Child

Hearts star Harry Cochrane has spoken of his love and affection for boyhood club Rangers, whilst taking a stroll down Memory Lane and revisiting some of his earliest footballing memories.

The 17-year-old midfielder has cemented his position as one of Scottish football’s most promising young talents after breaking into the Jambos first-team last season under Craig Levein, and has undoubtedly become a fan favourite amongst the club’s supporters.

But whilst he gives everything on the pitch when he pulls on that famous maroon jersey, it turns out Cochrane actually grew up dreaming of breaking into the Rangers team, and was a regular visitor to Ibrox as a child.

Speaking via the Sun, he explained: “The first big game I went to as a supporter was Rangers v Barcelona in the Champions League in 2007.

“It ended 0-0 but to see guys like Lionel Messi, Ronaldinho and Thierry Henry in the flesh was an amazing experience. That game has stuck with me.

“Growing up a Rangers fan, it was always a dream of mine to play there [Ibrox] one day.

“The atmosphere was amazing when I went there with Hearts recently. It was just a pity we didn’t win.

Now, the last thing we want to do is to sell one of Hearts’ star players to a Premiership rival, but does Cochrane’s boyhood allegiances perhaps suggest he’d love a move to Govan at some point in the not too distant future?
