RANGERS Academy defender Rhys Breen took part in a Twitter Q&A on the Youth Development Company account recently and you can check out the highlights here.
Rhys helped the Rangers Reserves clinch the league title on the final day of the campaign with a 3-1 victory at Falkirk and has fully recovered from a hip injury to play an important part for the Rangers Academy in the last few months.
Now he is determined to make up for the lost time and make as many appearances for the Academy teams as possible.
Check out his RYDC Q&A session….
Q – Kimmie – Who do you look up to in the first team, what team do you support, and the best game you have played in this season?
A – I look up to Lee Wallace – a really good leader and role model.
A – From a very young age I have supported Rangers and I have been here since I was 9.
A – Best game – hands down the Falkirk game. A great way to finish the season at Reserve champions.
Q – Curtis – Which player did you look up to when growing up?
A – Puyol at Barcelona. A classic no-nonsense defender and a great leader for Barcelona.
Q – Carlo – What Rangers player do you look up to?
A – Lee Wallace – he takes an interest in a lot of the youth players who are coming through and gives us all good advice and makes us feel welcome.
Q – Mark – Who’s your best pal in the team?
A – Scott Gray – I’ve come through the youth teams with him and we have the same sense of humour.
Q – Ryan – Best mate at Rangers?
A – As I already said Scott Gray but I get along well with everyone in the team.
Q – Ryan – What’s the best thing about playing for Rangers?
A – The people you come in and work with and the new stuff we learn every day.
Q – Georgia – what are your ambitions?
A – To play first-team football for Rangers.
Q – Craig – Do you remember playing at Kings Lynn last summer? Do you remember the pitch invader when we won on penalties?
A – Yes I do – brilliant to see that enthusiasm but best to stay in the stands.
Q – Stephen – Rhys you have done so well to recover from injury – what was the rehab like and to get the rewards at the end of this season?
A – At the beginning, it was hard to maintain the right mindset. But with the help of the club, family and friends I am now in a good place. I have been injury free for two months and to finish the season winning the league has been brilliant for me.
Q – The Staunchest – Favourite chant/Rangers Song?
A – We are the People.
