David Bates to leave Rangers for Hamburg in summer

David Bates suffered an ankle injury against Celtic in what could prove to be his final game for Rangers

Rangers defender David Bates will leave for Hamburg at the end of the campaign after signing a four-year deal with the Bundesliga outfit.

The Bundesliga club announced the shock move on their official website.

The 21-year-old defender has joined German side Hamburg on a pre-contract basis, which will see the Auchenhowie academy product leave at the end of the season on a free transfer.

"With his height, speed, mentality and responsibility in defence, there's no doubt David will serve HSV well", said HSV scouting director Johannes Spors.

"He is a down-to-earth guy who wants to actively develop his career and work hard for it".


Bates, who has not played since injuring an ankle against Celtic last month, initially joined Rangers on a loan deal from Raith Rovers in 2016 before making the move permanent.

However, talks over extending his contract beyond the summer were slow to take off and he had previously been linked with Sunderland.

He is now sidelined by an ankle injury sustained in the 3-2 loss to Celtic last month.

The 6ft 3in centre-back is now out injured and will not face Old Firm rivals Celtic on Sunday afternoon at Hampden Park, in what is the Gers' last chance to stop Celtic from completing a second successive treble.
