RANGERS have a number of players out on-loan at present. Here’s how they performed at the weekend…
Jak Alnwick – Blackpool
Jak will continue to miss the next few weeks for Blackpool after being forced off in their Boxing Day match with Accrington Stanley with an arm injury.
Clean sheets: 6
Jamie Barjonas – Partick Thistle
Jamie was cup-tied for Thistle as they were beaten in the semi-final of the Tunnocks’ Caramel Wafer Cup by Raith Rovers. Thistle host Dunfermline this weekend.
Greg Docherty – Hibernian
Greg’s third Hibs appearance brought about his second Hibs goal – a stunning drive from the edge of the box to open the scoring in a match they went on to win 2-1 away to Kilmarnock. Hibs play host to Livingston in the Scottish Premiership this Saturday.
Jason Holt – St Johnstone
Jason came off the bench for Saints on 72 minutes but couldn’t prevent them being held to a 1-1 draw away to Ross County, with Billy McKay leveling in the final minutes. Jason won’t be involved this weekend with Rangers visiting McDiarmid Park.
Lewis Mayo – Partick Thistle
Similarly to Jamie, Lewis was cup-tied for Thistle against Raith.
Robby McCrorie – Livingston
Robby missed out at the weekend as he is unable to play against his parent club. Livi are at Hibs this Saturday.
Clean sheets: 2
Ross McCrorie – Portsmouth
Ross returned from his injury lay-off in the 58th minute of Portsmouth’s 2-0 win over Shrewsbury on Saturday. Pompey are up to sixth in League One, and are now only four points off an automatic promotion slot. They host Exeter in the semi-final of the EFL Trophy tonight – with a final place at Wembley at stake.
Glenn Middleton – Bradford City
Glenn played 70 minutes on his Bradford debut – but they conceded twice in the final minutes to lose 2-1 away to Cambridge United. City are just a point outside the League Two play-off spots under new manager Stuart McCall and travel to Newport County on Saturday.
Jamie Murphy – Burton Albion
Jamie netted his fourth Burton goal in six appearances – albeit Burton went down 4-1 away to Ipswich in League One on Saturday. Albion are 12th in League One and now sit 10 points off the play-offs. Burton are at Southend this weekend.
Stephen Kelly – Ayr United
Stephen had a free weekend with Ayr’s game with Morton postponed due to the weather. Ayr are at Arbroath this weekend.
Nicky Hogarth – Stirling Albion
Nicky was in action again for Stirling as they earned an excellent 4-1 win away to Cowdenbeath in Scottish League Two. Albion are three points outside the play-offs and host Stenhousmuir this weekend.
Clean sheets: 1
Aidan Wilson – Edinburgh City
Aidan was an unused sub as City were beaten 2-1 at Cove to fall six points behind the league leaders in League Two. They face Brechin City at home this weekend.
Kieran Wright – Alloa Athletic
Kieran did well to keep a clean sheet for Alloa in a 0-0 draw with table-topping Dundee United on Friday night. They are ninth in the Championship, three points clear of the automatic relegation slot and travel to Morton this weekend.
