RANGERS have players on-loan in Scotland, England and beyond. Here’s our review of how those who played over the weekend got on…
Jak Alnwick – Blackpool
Jak was between the sticks for Blackpool as they earned an excellent 2-2 draw away to high-flying Ipswich Town on Saturday. Leading 2-1 at one stage, Blackpool were pegged back from the penalty spot on 58 minutes. Only goal difference is keeping the Seasiders outside the play-off spots at present, and they host Maidstone United in FA Cup round two on Sunday.
Clean sheets: 6
Eduardo Herrera – Necaxa
Eduardo was a late substitute for Necaxa as they suffered a shock 3-0 home reverse to 18th-placed Puebla. They are still six points clear inside the play-off places in Liga MX in fifth position.
Jake Hastie – Rotherham United
Jake played 64 minutes as Rotherham earned a super 3-2 away win at MK Dons. Trailing 2-0, the Millers struck three times without replay in the second half to claim the superb win. They are up to fourth in League One – well inside the play-off spots and four points off the automatic places.
Jason Holt – St Johnstone
Jason played 59 minutes and was booked as St Johnstone, who ended the match with nine men, came from behind to draw 1-1 with Aberdeen at McDiarmid Park. Saints are bottom of the table on goal-difference – though they are tied on points with Hamilton, St Mirren and Hearts. They face Motherwell at Fir Park on Saturday.
Robby McCrorie – Queen of the South
Robby’s Queen of the South were on the end of a huge Scottish Cup shock as they lost 2-1 at home to League Two strugglers Queens’ Park. They will have to bounce back quickly with a trip to Dundee to come on Saturday.
Clean sheets: 3
Jordan Rossiter – Fleetwood Town
Jordan played 76 minutes as Fleetwood defeated Tranmere Rovers 2-1 at Highbury. Similarly to Blackpool, they sit just outside the play-off places on goal difference. They play Everton under-21s in the EFL Trophy tomorrow before facing FA Cup action at home to Crawley Town on Saturday.
Aidan McAdams – Edinburgh City
Aidan played 90 minutes as Edinburgh City secured their place in the fourth round of the Scottish Cup with a 4-3 home win over Annan. They have been drawn away to Premiership side Hamilton Accies in the next round. City return to League action at Hampden against Queens’ Park on Saturday.
Clean sheets: 2
Cammy Palmer – Partick Thistle
Cammy played 90 minutes as Thistle were pushed all the way in their 1-0 Scottish Cup win over Penicuik Athletic, with the draw seeing the Jags paired with Celtic in the next round. They are back in league action tomorrow at home to Alloa.
Matthew Shiels – Dumbarton
Matty played 90 minutes as Dumbarton knocked Forfar out of the Scottish Cup by beating them 3-1, with the Sons drawn away to Aberdeen in the next round. Dumbarton return to league action on Saturday as they make the short trip to Clyde.
Aidan Wilson – Edinburgh City
Aidan also featured in the cup clash with Annan, making his return from injury.
