RANGERS have had players in action across the world in the past week, including in the impressive Scotland Under 21 squad at the Toulon Tournament. 


DECLAN JOHN – WALES

Declan returned from the injury which kept him out of the final stages of the domestic campaign to feature for Wales in their only close season friendly. The 22-year-old’s broken hand has healed and he came on at half-time against Mexico, making an important impact on the game in LA’s Rose Bowl arena.


BRUNO ALVES – PORTUGAL

Portugal are two games into a three games warm-up for the World Cup, which is now just two weeks away. Bruno’s side faced Tunisia and Belgium last week, where the centre-half was an unused sub in both fixtures. Portugal’s final friendly is against Algeria on Thursday.


JAMIE MURPHY – SCOTLAND

Jamie started Scotland’s game against Peru and then sat out their second friendly in Mexico. He played just over an hour of Peru’s 2-0 win to gain his third cap for his country.


LEE HODSON – NORTHERN IRELAND

Northern Ireland have had two games on a short close season tour of Central and South America. Lee came on as a sub in the 59th minute against Panama in a goalless draw before starting against Costa Rica in a 3-0 defeat.


TOULON TOURNAMENT 

The Scotland Under 21s have made it through to the semi-finals of the competition in France with three Rangers players in action. A 1-1 draw with Togo before back to back wins over France and South Korea in the group stages have seen the youngsters top their group with seven points. They now face England in the semi-finals on Wednesday.

GLENN MIDDLETON – SCOTLAND UNDER 21s

Glenn made a substitute appearance in the first group game, coming off the bench on 82 minutes against Togo. He was unused in Scotland’s 1-0 win over France but then made a crucial impact as he started against South Korea, setting up the opening goal for former Gers kid Billy Gilmour. Scotland ran out 2-1 winners and Middleton played 68 minutes, saying “The win meant the world to us.”

ROBBY MCCRORIE – SCOTLAND UNDER 21s

Robby played one out of three in Scotland’s group games at the Toulon Tournament. It was an important start for the 20-year-old, who spent last season on loan as Berwick Rangers’ Player of the Year. He kept a clean sheet and pulled off a game changing save to help his country pick up all three points against France.

 


LIAM BURT – SCOTLAND UNDER 21s

Liam has played in one of Scotland’s three games so far. He was a 56th minute sub in the first game, the 1-1 draw against Togo.
