RANGERS goalkeeper Kieran Wright was happy to keep a clean sheet in this afternoon’s Development squad victory over Fleetwood Town Under-23’s.

It was the second in the space of a week for the young keeper after last Tuesday’s 2-0 victory in the Tunnock’s Caramel Wafer Cup against League One side Stranraer.

He said: “It was a good win for the boys we had a young squad as well as a couple of first team boys so I think we hadn’t really trained a lot together so to put it into practice in a game was very good.

“I am really pleased with that, it is always nice for the back four and the goalkeeper to get a clean sheet after the game.

“We did adapt well, I think the boys are good at that because there has been a bit of mix and match the past couple of games and since the start of pre-season so I think we have dealt with it quite well.”

With a number of experienced players coming into the squad for today’s game Wright relished the chance to play alongside them.

He added:

“It is good because they do help, you have got Jamie Murphy and Graham Dorrans and they have played at the highest level and they help the young boys throughout the game.

“I thought the goal was coming today, I thought we could’ve came in at half-time two or three up but we just kept pushing and pushing in the second half and it was going to come.”

It was announced yesterday that the 20-year-old has been called up to the Scotland Under-21 squad for the upcoming UEFA Euro Qualifiers against San Marino and Croatia.

He added: “I am delighted and I am happy with the call-up, I am looking forward to that.

“It is a privilege to get called up to the national team. You are involved with such good players and it is nice to get in amongst the boys.”
