Rangers B coach expecting difficult test as ex-Man United kid set for Gers debut

Rangers B head coach David McCallum thinks East Kilbride remain favourites for the Lowland League this season, despite their poor start, and expects a difficult challenge when his young Gers come up against Kilby later today.

Rangers host Stevie Aitken’s side at the C&G Systems Stadium in Dumbarton at 3pm and the Gers boss thinks some of the players in the East Kilbride ranks could be playing as high as the Championship rather than the fifth tier.

With only two points from their opening three games, East Kilbride’s start to the season has been a world away from expectations but McCallum believes that will change soon so isn’t taking them lightly ahead of this afternoon’s clash.

“East Kilbride were one of the favourites at the start of the season and I don’t think that’s changed,” McCallum told Rangers TV.

“I know they’ve had a difficult start, but they’ve got players in their group that should and probably could still be playing at the higher levels – League One, League Two and maybe even Championship for one or two of them.

“So it will be difficult and we should expect that.

“I don’t think we should look into their results too deeply because at some point that will change.

“We just have to make sure we know as much about them as much as we can.

“That’s only for awareness because we should always look at ourselves first and foremost and try and make sure we perform at the levels we know the players can do.

“If there are problems that happen during the game, we’ll just need to find the solutions just a little bit quicker.”

Rangers could have a new face in their ranks this afternoon with Charlie McCann set to make his debut following his move from Manchester United.

After winning three of their opening four games, Rangers B have started their maiden campaign in the Lowland League brilliantly.

A win over one of the best teams in the league would really set a marker down as McCallum’s side look to prove Colts deserve their place in the pyramid.
