RANGERS have players on-loan in Scotland, England and beyond. Here’s our look-back at how those who played over the weekend got on…
Jak Alnwick – Blackpool
Blackpool earned a 1-1 draw away to Sunderland on Saturday to maintain their place in the League One play-off spots. Matthew Virtue had them 1-0 up after just four minutes before the Black Cats leveled before the break. They host mid-table Shrewsbury at Bloomfield Road this weekend.
Clean sheets: 6
Jake Hastie – Rotherham United
Jake’s corner was turned into his own net by Rob Kiernan as Rotherham drew 2-2 at Southend United in League One. That had the Millers 1-0 up in Essex before Southend hit back to lead 2-1 just after the break. Sam Mantom leveled matters on the hour mark, however, to ensure a share of the spoils. Rotherham are sitting in the sixth and final play-off spot, and host Fleetwood this Saturday.
Jason Holt – St Johnstone
Jason played 80 minutes and helped his St Johnstone side haunt his old club Hearts with a 1-0 win at Tynecastle to lift the Saints off the bottom of the table. Callum Hendry grabbed the only goal of the game with 16 minutes left to play, meaning St Johnstone are now 10th in the Scottish Premiership – three ahead of 11th-placed Hearts having played a game less. Holt and Saints host St Mirren at McDiarmid Park on Saturday.
Ross McCrorie – Portsmouth
Ross had a disappointing Saturday, as his Portsmouth side went down 4-1 away to Accrington Stanley. After taking the lead in Lancashire, Pompey were pegged-back before the break and then conceded three before reply in the second half. Portsmouth are now 10th in League One, though that’s just three points off the play-off spots.
Jordan Rossiter – Fleetwood Town
Jordan may be out for the long-term with knee ligament damage – but he still managed to pick up Fleetwood’s Official Supporters’ Club’s Player of the Year award at the weekend.
Congratulations, Jordan Rossiter! 🏆
The midfielder received the Official Supporters Club Player of the Month award for November on Saturday!

Stephen Kelly – Ayr United
After netting direct from a corner in Ayr’s 1-1 draw with Arbroath last midweek, Stevie followed that up with another 90 minutes as the Honest Men defeated Alloa 2-1 at Somerset. Ayr are three points clear inside the play-off spots in the Championship, and travel to runaway leaders Dundee United on Saturday.
Jordan Houston – Ayr United
Jordan also played 90 minutes in the victory.
Cammy Palmer – Partick Thistle
Cammy was a late sub for Partick as they defeated Inverness 3-1 at Firhill. They are up to eighth in the Championship – four points above the bottom of the league.
Zak Rudden – Plymouth Argyle
Zak made his comeback from injury after almost two months out, being a 67th-minute sub for Plymouth in their 3-0 defeat of Morecambe. The Green Army are eighth in League Two, two points off the play-offs with a game in hand.
Matty Shiels – Dumbarton
Matty played 89 minutes as Dumbarton won a dramatic game 4-3 at Forfar on Saturday. The Sons are sixth in League One – four points off the play-offs and travel to league-leaders Raith Rovers on Saturday.
