A TEENAGE football star from Port Glasgow is lacing up his boots to play alongside Rangers greats at a charity football match.

Promising goalkeeper Cameron Ross is taking part in the 'Bars for Bears' tournament to raise funds for various charities - including the Rangers Charity Foundation.

The youngster, who has 'been playing football since he could walk', will be playing alongside title-winning Ibrox heroes such as Marvin Andrews and Alex Rae during the game at Tinto Park on Saturday.

Cameron, who plays semi-professional for Glasgow-based teams, said: "I'm looking forward to the match and playing alongside footballers I watched when I was younger.

"It's a great way to raise money for good causes.

"I am aiming to raise between £300 and £500 as the causes which the charity day support are all ones which I want to help.

"As well as funds going towards Erskine Hospital, money will also go towards a football mental health charity which I think is great."

Cameron, who is involved with the John Gibson Goalkeeping Academy, has been supported in his efforts by parents Linda Williams and David Ross.

Linda, who is also no stranger to fundraising, told the Tele: "His dad and I are so proud of him and love watching him play football.

"I've been taking him to football since he was a toddler, so seeing him get opportunities like this is brilliant.

"His wee girlfriend, Emma Dow, has also been a great support to him.

"He really deserves to go far, he works hard."
