Former Chelsea youngster Young-Coombes signed a two-year deal with Gers when he arrived from Stamford Bridge in January 2019.
He made a big impression on the club’s development and starred when the Ibrox youth won the Alkass Cup in 2019.
The highly rated Young Coombes also scored a memorable winner in the Old Firm Scottish Youth Cup final.
He found the net for Graeme Murty’s Colts team against Wrexham at Ibrox in the Tunnocks Caramel Wafer Challenge Cup – but had to make a competitive appearance for Steven Gerrard’s first team.

The teenager was linked to a summer move to West Ham but will now be returning south with Brentford from London.
Thomas Frank’s side are currently runner-up in the English championship, four points behind leaders Norwich City, with one game in hand.
In the meantime, Billy Dodds admits that if they get their first title in a decade at Parkhead, it will be an “added bonus” for Rangers.
The light blues are just SIX wins from banishing Celtic’s ten-time dreams once and for all.

Not only that, but if both teams keep winning their games by then, the deed could even be accomplished with a win at Parkhead in the third Old Firm game of the season on March 21st. It is the earliest title win in the history of the Scottish top class.
Dodds, who arrived at Ibrox shortly after the Rangers’ last win in the East End of Glasgow in the so-called ‘Shame Game’ in May 1999, told Sky Sports: “That [winning the league at Celtic Park] would of course be an added bonus, I won’t deny that.
“But I think only if Rangers haven’t won a title in a long time, the main thing is to just win it.”
“Of course they would like to do it against their bitter rivals.
“But let’s face it, once they get the title the pressure is gone.
“Because they set out to win their first title in ten seasons.
“There’s no doubt the Rangers were just adamant about the way they did it.
“Whether it is about winning games broadly or if they had a close game last night, they still find a way to get all three points.”
