RANGERS have players out on-loan in Scotland, England and beyond. Here’s our review of how those who featured at the weekend performed…
Jak Alnwick – Blackpool
Jak kept his second clean sheet in Blackpool colours – but his attackers couldn’t do the business at the other end as the Seasiders were held to a 0-0 draw at Rochdale – albeit they remain joint-top on 11 points with five other teams after five matches. Jak will come up against Ross McCrorie’s Portsmouth on Saturday at Bloomfield Road in League One.
Clean sheets: 2
Eduardo Herrera – Necaxa
Eduardo was a 67th-minute substitute for Necaxa in their 2-1 win away to Guadalajara. Necaxa are fifth in Liga MX on 10 points after six matches and host Toluca on Wednesday night.
Robby McCrorie – Queen of the South
Robby will have to listen to the wind-ups of fellow loan Ranger Stephen Kelly after the midfielder netted the only goal of the game against him in Saturday’s 1-0 win for Ayr United over Queens. They sit seventh with two points from three games and host Alloa at Palmerston this weekend.
Clean sheets: 1
Ross McCrorie – Portsmouth
Ross played 90 minutes for Pompey as they were held to a 3-3 home draw with Coventry City. Leading 3-1 at one stage, Coventry netted twice late-on to claim a point. Portsmouth are 16th with four points from four games, and head to QPR in the League Cup tomorrow before traveling to Blackpool on Saturday.
Glenn Middleton – Hibernian
Glenn played the full 90 for Hibs as St Johnstone twice came from behind to claim a point at Easter Road. Hibs are seventh in the Scottish Premiership with four points from four games, and they are at Motherwell this Saturday in the league.
Jordan Rossiter – Fleetwood Town
Jordan again played 90 minutes for Fleetwood, this time as they claimed a 2-0 home win in League One against Accrington Stanley. They sit just a point of top-spot in the table and head to Lincoln City this weekend.
Stephen Kelly – Ayr United
As mentioned, Stephen has the bragging rights this week having netted past Robby McCrorie in Ayr’s win over Queens. Ayr are third in the Championship with six points from their first three and head to Partick Thistle this weekend.
Josh McPake – Dundee
Josh made his Dundee debut on the hour mark as they were held 0-0 at home to Inverness on Saturday. They have five points from three games, and head across the road this Friday for the Dundee derby.
Cammy Palmer – Partick Thistle
Cammy was in midfield for Partick Thistle on Friday night as they conceded three times in eight minutes to lose their two goal lead away to Morton. They are ninth in the Championship with one point so far and host Stephen Kelly’s Ayr this Saturday.
Zak Rudden – Plymouth Argyle
Zak made his Plymouth debut after just 26 minutes of their 3-0 home win over Walsall. They sit second in English League Two with 10 points from their opening five matches and are at Reading in the League Cup tomorrow before traveling to Northampton on Saturday.
