NINE Rangers’ players are currently out on loan across Scotland and the world. Here is a round-up of how they got on at the weekend.
Ryan Hardie | Raith Rovers
Ryan went close with a first-half chance but it would be Aidan Connolly who would win the game for Rovers. They beat Livingston 1-0, as they prepared for the first leg of their play-off quarter-final against Hibernian on Wednesday, with a victory. Ryan played the entirety of the game.
Andy Murdoch | Queen of the South
Andy was a 57th minute sub as Queen of the South confirmed a seventh place finish with defeat to Hibernian, after being reduced to 10 men. The midfielder was part of a shuffling of the pack by Gavin Skelton after Mark Millar was dismissed. Hibs struck twice after the red card to win 2-0.
Luca Gasparotto | Greenock Morton
Luca’s Morton were involved in another important game to determine the play-off places in the Championship. He was on the end of a 1-0 defeat by Falkirk as they secured second spot. The centre-half finished the game with a bandaged head after taking a heavy knock as he played the entire 90 minutes. He cleared a chance off the line before the Bairns missed a penalty and then struck their winner in a close game.
Robbie Crawford | Alloa Athletic
The already relegated Alloa ended their season with a one each draw against Dumbarton. Robbie was a 74th minute substitute and had a chance to win the game for The Wasps at the death.
Tom Walsh | Dumbarton
Tom was playing against his Gers teammate Robbie Crawford but they never actually faced each other on the pitch. The midfielder played 68 minutes before being substituted. Scott Gallacher was forced to deny him as the Sons pressed for an equaliser, which they eventually got through Donald McCallum.
Ross McCrorie | Ayr United
Ross was on the end of a 3-0 drubbing by promotion chasing Airdrieonians in League One. The centre-back played the whole game in the heart of the Ayr defence as they finished the season in second spot. They now have to wait to find out their play-off semi-final opponent. Peterhead and Stranraer will play this week.
Liam Kelly | East Fife
Liam conceded one goal as East Fife drew 1-1 with bottom side East Stirling but the League Two champions didn’t mind dropping points as they celebrated a promotion party. The goalkeeper got his hands on the league trophy as East Fife were officially crowned champions.
Darren Ramsay | Arbroath
Darren didn’t feature as his side finished seven points above the drop zone but fell to a 4-1 defeat at the hands of Elgin City.
Fraser Aird | Vancouver Whitecaps
Fraser missed out as his MLS side went close against the star studded New York City FC in a thriller of a game, as they lost 3-2. The Whitecaps head coach made seven changes for the game, including his entire backline. Whitecaps took the lead in the first minute before New York went 2-1 up through a David Villa double. The Canadian side pulled their lead back but New York struck in the 73rd minute.
