Rangers: Gio van Bronckhorst must unleash Alex Lowry

Rangers boss Gio van Bronckhorst ensured that his side went into the international break off the back of a win with a 2-1 victory away from Ibrox on Sunday.

Aaron Ramsey and Connor Goldson scored the goals as the Gers made sure that they remain in touching distance of their arch-rivals at the top of the Premiership table.

They are currently three points behind Celtic and face off against them in the Old Firm clash on the other side of the international break.

However, the two clubs’ respective B teams have already faced each other this month as Rangers smashed their Glasgow counterparts 3-0.

Unleash him

One of the players who caught the eye in that thrashing was young midfielder Alex Lowry, and Van Bronckhorst must unleash him in the Premiership in the final weeks of the campaign. The 18-year-old is a game-changing talent who must be given an opportunity to show what he can do in the Scottish top flight.

Does Lowry deserve a Premiership start?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Gers reporter Joshua Barrie said that Lowry “looks a step above everyone else on the pitch” during the win over the Hoops as he scored a fantastic goal from distance, driving through midfield before curling the ball into the far corner.

Journalist Josh Bunting also lauded the midfielder with praise last month as he tweeted: “Alex Lowry is just a fabulous footballer, on this pitch the way he’s dribbling on it indicates he has so much quality, so good on the ball and has a wonderful sense of balance, really good at driving at the opposition defence he creates plenty of problems with his movement.”

How well do you know Morelos? First... who did he score his 100th goal against?

He has also made four appearances for Rangers at senior level, mainly in the Scottish Cup, and provided one goal and one assist from central midfield. Along with his sublime strike against Celtic’s B team, this suggests that he has the potential to be a game-changing player for Van Bronckhorst, as he has the quality to provide goal contributions from the middle of the park.

The 18-year-old must now be given the opportunity to prove that he can do it in the Premiership, just as he has in the cup for the first-team and in an Old Firm clash for the youth side. Van Bronckhorst must unleash him in the top flight and, following one solitary league outing against Livingston in January, give him a more frequent taste of what it is like to play at that level, as the teenager’s performances of late deserve recognition.

AND in other news, Wilson had a Rangers disaster on 6 foot 4 “monster” who’s “one of the best in the country”…
