Rangers hero's son spotted going into Man Utd training centre as his excited mum hails 'big day' | The Sun

The son of an ex-Rangers player's career has taken a dramatic turn as he was pictured at the training ground of the Red Devils.

Jonatan Johansson enjoyed a three year spell in Glasgow at the beginning of his career back in 1997.

The Finish international was signed by Walter Smith for Rangers as he moved across Europe to propel his career.

And his son, Junior could be following a similar trajectory as he looks to start building his footballing career.

He has been spotted at the Carrington Training Centre, belonging to Premier League giants Manchester United.

It is believed he was there for a match against the Reds as his mum, Jean Johansson took to social media to promote the news.

The Kenyan-born Scottish TV star posted a picture of Junior on Instagram, looking towards the signage of the Manchester club's training ground.

The caption read "big day for Junior" before another picture was posted with Junior, Jean and Jonatan outside the building.

She later posted a message saying: "Great game at Carrington, you did us proud against Manchester United Junior."

The youngster started his football career at Wemyss Bay club Ardgowan Thistle before recently signing a contract with Ayr United.

He joined the side's youth academy back in June as he follows in the footsteps of his father in a bid to become a professional footballer.

“Both of these lads have been at Ardgowan Thistle FC 2010s since the beginning of their football journey.

He moved down South to ply his trade for Charlton and Norwich before joining Swedish giants Malmo.

He returned to Scotland for stints with Hibs and St Johnstone before returning to Finland.

He married Scottish TV presenter Jean in 2008 and was an assistant manager to Pedro Caixinha at Rangers in 2017.
