  18. Only seen him play against us in the last couple of years. Decent player and one of the better players out with Rangers. I wouldn't have had him down as a "must sign" target but a good addition. In saying that I have never seen him play left-back or centre back as described. He has always played in midfield and in the last game against Rangers he played just behind the striker.
  19. It was an U19 Tournament Rangers had 3 x U19, 4 x U18, 4 x U17 and 1 x U16. WE were probably the youngest squad, although winners Rapid Vienna almost mirrored our squad exactly having one U17 less, which meant either an U18 or U19 more. They also had the player of the tournament in Yusuf Demir who is U17.
  20. Under 18's is a dual year U18's & U17's, Rangers have a very big squad, possibly too big. As a consequence the only U16 to start games is Leon King who hasn't played with his own age group for some time. The opposition would generally have a few U16's and in Hearts case they have field some U15's in these league games.
  21. Scotland being Scotland we have come up with a bizarre and complicated youth league. Each of the eight teams in the Elite League play each other twice. They also play the eleven teams in the tier below once for League points. So when Aberdeen drew 2-2 with Ross County they each got 1 point for their respective leagues. That makes a total of 25 games.Rangers have the biggest and best squad but to it should be noted we haven't played Celtic, Aberdeen or Hamilton Accies yet.
  22. Under 18 League table is almost impossible to find. Fortunately the results are on the SFA website so I made my own. Team Pl W D L F A GD PTS Rangers 12 12 0 0 52 4 48 36 Aberdeen 10 9 1 0 29 8 21 28 Celtic 12 8 2 2 34 12 22 26 Hamilton Acc 10 5 2 3 12 9 3 17 Kilmarnock 12 5 1 6 17 16 1 16 Hibernian 11 5 1 5 20 21 -1 16 Motherwell 12 4 1 7 18 31 -13 13 Hearts 13 3 3 7 12 22 -10 12
