RANGERS have players out on-loan in Scotland, England and beyond. Here’s our review of how those who played performed over the weekend…
Jak Alnwick – Blackpool
Jak was between the sticks as his Blackpool side fell to a 3-0 home defeat to MK Dons. Former Ibrox teammate Russell Martin opened the scoring early-on, and it ended a hugely disappointing loss for the Seasiders. They sit ninth in League One and travel to Doncaster tomorrow before heading to Accrington Stanley on Saturday.
Clean sheets: 1
Jake Hastie – Rotherham United
Jake made it two goals in two matches for Rotherham as he netted in their 6-1 hammering of Bolton in League One. They are 13th in the table and face Sunderland tomorrow before hosting Shrewsbury on Saturday.
Jason Holt – St Johnstone
Jason marked his St Johnstone debut by helping them claim a decent point away to Aberdeen in a 1-1 draw. Saints are 11th and are yet to win, and Holt will be missing from their next match – the visit of Rangers to McDiarmid Park on Sunday.
Robby McCrorie – Queen of the South
Robby turned in a much-lauded performance to help his Queen of the South side to a 1-0 win over Morton in the Championship. It was Queens’ first win of the season to lift them to seventh in the table, and they make the long trip north to Inverness this weekend.
Clean sheets: 2
Jordan Rossiter – Fleetwood Town
Jordan played an hour of Fleetwood’s 3-3 draw away to Southend United. They are fourth in League One, but could have been top had they held onto the 3-2 lead they had late-on. They host Rochdale on Saturday.
Stephen Kelly – Ayr United
Stephen turned in another fine performance as Ayr inflicted Dundee United’s first league defeat of the season, beating the leaders 2-0 at Somerset Park to go joint top. United are at Alloa on Saturday.
Jordan Houston – Ayr United
Jordan made his Ayr debut in the same match, coming on as an 86th-minute substitute for Luke McCowan.
Aidan McAdams – Edinburgh City
Aidan made his Edinburgh City debut in their 4-0 thrashing of Annan in League Two. City are second in the table and are at Albion Rovers on Saturday.
Clean sheets: 1
Josh McPake – Dundee
Josh impressed for Dundee on his first start as they defeated Alloa 2-1 at Dens. The Dees are fifth in the table and travel to Morton on Saturday.
Cammy Palmer – Partick Thistle
Cammy played 90 minutes of Thistle’s 1-1 draw at Arbroath on Friday night. They are yet to win and sit ninth in the Championship, and host Dunfermline on Saturday.
Zak Rudden – Plymouth Argyle
Zak was a 77th-minute sub in Plymouth’s 1-0 loss at Port Vale. Argyle are 11th in League Two and are at Crawley Town tomorrow.
Matty Shiels – Dumbarton
Matty was a 68th-minute sub for Dumbarton to make his debut in their 1-0 home loss to Airdrie. They are at East Fife this weekend and sit fifth in Scottish League One.
