Following the news yesterday that Kyle McAusland had gone out on loan to Brechin City until the end of the year I decided today to have a look at who from the bunch of our reserve & youth players currently out on loan were playing for their teams today, so here's some brief news about them following today's games:


Calum Gallagher - Calum played the full 90+5 minutes and scored the second goal after 41 minutes for Cowdenbeath today in their 2-1 home victory over Queen of the South. Gallagher's goal was a right footed shot from the centre of the box to the bottom left corner. He also had an earlier attempt on goal saved following a corner kick 20 minutes into the game when his left footed shot from the centre of the box was saved at the bottom left corner.


Luca Gasparotto - Luca played the full 90+6 minutes for Airdrieonians today in their 2-3 victory over Ayr United away from home. Just before the 53 minute mark Luca hit the bar with a right footed shot from the centre of the box. Just after the 86 minute mark Luca scored a header from the centre of the box to the bottom right corner to get his side back on level terms. The goal was mistakenly awarded to David Proctor, but later given to Gasparotto. He only conceded one foul and one corner in what was an excellent away win for Airdrieonians.


Craig Halkett - Craig played the full 90+3 minutes for Clyde today in their 1-1 home draw with Annan Athletic. The goal Clyde conceded was a penalty following a foul in the box by Craig's teammate Brian McQueen.


Barrie McKay - Barrie played the full 90+2 minutes for Raith Rovers today in their 0-0 home draw with Falkirk. Not sure how well he played yet, but he did have one attempt on goal midway through the second half where he put his left footed shot from outside the box over the bar.


Robbie Crawford - Robbie played 73 minutes for Morton today in their 2-1 defeat away from home to Stenhousemuir before being replaced by Jon Scullion. Morton dominated the game and created far more chances than Stenny, but a close range header early in the second half gave the home side all 3 points.


Kyle McAusland - Kyle made a substitute appearance for Brechin today in their 3-1 away defeat in Forfor. He came on for Gary Fusco after 58 minutes when Brechin were already getting beat 2-1. Not much info to report yet apart from him giving away a foul shortly after coming on, but quickly making amends by winning a free kick in the attacking half only 5 minutes after his introduction, then winning another in stoppage time.


Danny Stoney - Danny got a substitute appearance for Stranraer today in their 2-0 home victory over Stirling when he came on after 73 minutes. He was only on the pitch for about 90 seconds before forcing the Stirling keeper into a save when his right footed shot from a difficult angle on the left was saved at the bottom left corner.


So, it was a reasonably good day for our young lads out on loan with four of them getting the full match under their belt and really good days for Calum Gallagher and Luca Gasparotto in particular, with both of their teams recording excellent victories against very tough opposition in their respective leagues.


Keep up the good work lads!!

You know, we've seen other threads where people have said that we need to spend £30M+ to compete with the scum, but when you look at this list we may be all right.

All of these guys have been included in the first team squad and/or seen action on the field. This kind of game time can only be good for them. Even if we only get a couple of them breaking into the first team we may only need to buy one or two players to win the big league.

If you have time, Zappa, why don't you make these reports a weekly feature? Be good to keep them in mind.

I won't be able to do it all the time mate because it was quite time consuming even just to do this brief round-up, but when I have time and there's a whole bunch of them all in action at the same time like today, I'll maybe do it again.

Loan Watch

Written by Rangers Football Club




RANGERS loan boys notched up two goals across three leagues in this weekend's fixtures while others didn't have quite the same luck.


In the Championship a 41st minute goal made it two goals in three games for Calum Gallagher as Cowdenbeath beat Queen of the South 2-1. The win gave Cowden their first three points of the Championship season. Elsewhere in the league Barrie McKay suffered a frustrating afternoon in front of goal at Stark’s Park as Raith played out a goalless draw with Falkirk.


Those players out on loan to League one sides had mixed fortunes this weekend. Kyle McAusland featured as a 58th minute substitute, in the first game of his loan spell for Brechin City as they went down 3-1 to Forfar Athletic at Station Park.


Robbie Crawford found himself on the losing side as Morton were beaten 2-1 by Stenhousemuir, meanwhile fellow loanee Tom Walsh didn’t feature for Stenny.


It was better news for Luca Gasparotto, the centre half scored as Aidrieonians secured a late 3-2 win away at Ayr. The 19- year old netted one of three goals in the final ten minutes to help secure all three points.


Danny Stoney made a brief appearance off the bench for Stranraer as they beat Stirling Albion 2-0 at Stair Park.


And in League Two former Rangers star Barry Ferguson made his debut for Clyde in his role as Player/Manager alongside loanee Craig Halkett. The pair could only help their side draw 1-1 with Annan, leaving Clyde still rooted to the foot of the table.
