Captain Hilts

Recommended Posts

Says on the site. Little is a "major doubt" but Kyle should be back. I reckon Calum Gallagher will get a place in the squad...

With Perry, Cribari, Faure all out for a month we're looking thin on the ground.

Jig and Hegarty seemed to do ok on Saturday at centre half, although this leaves a gap up front. as you say we may see Gallagher getting some game time

Little is most likely going to miss it which leaves us very short all over but on paper we should still be winning easily with the players we have available. We will have to give some more youth players a chance Gasparotto to play beside McCulloch in defence and Gallagher to play alongside Shiels in attack although I could see Naismith starting upfront.

I suppose we will have to play



Scott Gallagher

Kamil Wiktorski

Kyle Hutton

Robbie Crawford

Fran Stella

Little was a wee bit slack at the Weekend imo. Maybe better if he sat it out anyway and was used in the reserves to get back to fitness.

I'd like to see Gallagher come in up front and maybe even get a look at Stella.

Alexander, Crawford, McCulloch, Hegarty, Wallace, McKay, Black, MacLeod, Aird, Gallagher, Shiels?

no Hegarty will be needed at right back as we have literally no one else to play there which means we will need to find a CB and Gasparotto is our reserves captain and is highly rated so I see no reason for him not to get a chance.

well fuck knows who we will play now perhaps try moving Kyle Hutton into defence or maybe they will play Andy Murdoch at full back.

Someone is going to have to step up. Hopefully they take their chance coz we're low on numbers. Wouldn't want Hutton at CB though.

Here's the match report from Tuesday's reserve game, 5-1 against Stenhousemuir. Might help you fill some slots in your team selection:

RANGERS reserves eased to a 5-1 win over Stenhousemuir at Auchenhowie tonight as they continued their good form in the league campaign.

Doubles from Kal Naismith and Calum Gallagher and a strike from Tom Walsh ensured the home side secured three points.

Naismith got the home side off to a flying start when he opened the scoring with barely seconds on the clock.

He found himself in acres of space on the edge of the area and rifled a fine effort high in to the top corner.

The visitors almost hit back instantly when the crossbar came to Blair Currie’s rescue after a looping header had the keeper beaten.

That was the best Stenny could muster in the opening half hour and Rangers might have been further ahead but for some poor decision making in the final third.

Luck played its part too with Darren Ramsay unfortunate with the bounce when Naismith headed down Matty Clarke’s cross from the left.

Francesco Stella then almost added to the scoring twice, with two decent runs that were thwarted by the keeper and a wayward finish that sailed over the bar.

Naismith showed more composure just before the half hour mark when he steered a fine left footed effort just inside the post low to the keeper’s right.

The two goal lead didn’t last however and Stuart Love pegged the home side back when he pounced on some indecisive defending to fire home from inside the Rangers area.

Stella had the opportunity to restore the lead five minutes later as he was sent clear, but his poked effort rolled wide of the upright.

The Australian was involved in the build-up to the third however as he released Clarke on the left and the fullback picked out Gallagher in the middle for a simple finish to a lovely move.

A half time pep talk for the visitors saw them emerge a little more energetically and with a spate of changes for the home side Stenny enjoyed a spell of relative comfort.

However it was Dean Shaw in the visitors’ goal that made the biggest impression as a string of fine saves ensured the score was kept down until late in the game.

He denied Tom Walsh and substitute Jamie Burrows when both players might have felt they should have found the net from close range.

So Shaw would have been disappointed with Walsh’s strike that did find the back of the net with just five minutes remaining.

The midfielder’s effort was well struck but the keeper might have held it in different weather conditions rather than allow it to slip through his grasp and roll in to make it 4-1.

Gallagher then added a fifth in injury time as he headed home from Stuart Urquhart’s cross to give the scoreline a look that better reflected the Light Blues’ domination of possession.

Stuart Urquhart is a defender I know he was highly rated aswell but he has just returned from a long injury so I don't know if he would be ready for 1st team football, Walsh is also very promising but from what I have seen he is a winger/attacking midfielder and McKay, Aird are obviously ahead of him at the moment, Clark isn't anything special I don't think he will ever make it, Burrows i'm not to sure about tbh.
