STRIKER Andrew Dallas was pleased with how Rangers Development squad overcame a strong Cambridge United side in yesterday’s pre-season friendly.

Dallas scored the opening goal in the game after just nine minutes before Jamie Barjonas netted a second-half strike to seal the win.

Speaking to RangersTV after the game, he said: “They were a good physical team and we knew it was going to be a good test before the game.

“We had a couple of good results so we were confident going into the game and then we got the first goal and we took a bit of confidence from that and then got the other and we managed to hold the game out and all round I think it was a good performance.”

The striker scored after just nine minutes before missing a chance to double his tally as he diverted the ball over the bar from close range.

He said: “The goal was with my left foot, it just kind of broke to me and then luckily enough I stuck it away and then I had the chance which is going to keep me awake tonight.

“I am still happy to get the goal and at the end of the day it is about the team getting the result to take us forward into the season.

“When we were warming up and looking across you could see there were a couple of big guys but that is the challenges we are going to have to face at different points in our career they had a big guy up front and I was up against two big defenders so it’s the challenges we need to face and I felt like I done alright and played quite well and the two centre backs dealt with the big guy up front as well.”

Dallas has been enjoying pre-season so far, he added:

“It’s been good in the first couple of weeks we got quite a lot of running but now the games are starting to kick in and as soon as that happens you start to get your fitness and start to feel like you again.

“It has been a lot easier for me because I’ve been scoring a couple of goals so that always keeps me going and keeps me motivated.”
