Rangers B were back in action this afternoon, picking up a 2-1 win over East Kilbride thanks to a Tony Weston goal early in the first half and Adam Devine’s late winner as David McCallum’s side got back to winning ways.
The Gers handed Charlie McCann a debut after the Irish youngster’s move from Manchester United last month as the youth international was named in the starting XI for the clash at Dumbarton’s C&G Systems Stadium.
McCann’s arrival at the Gers has Rangers supporters excited to follow the teens progress through the ranks at Ibrox and they were delighted to see him get hs first taste of action for the Light Blues.
Rangers took the lead early on through Weston, as Stevie Aitken’s side continued their poor start to the Lowland League campaign, having started as one of the favourites to lift the title.
Weston’s strike from the edge of the area to open the scoring came after 15 minutes as the former Blackpool striker rifled home.
The visitors drew level shortly after the restart, when Neil McLaughlin’s deflected shot from 25 yards looped over Buudinauckas in the Rangers goal and into the net.
With just five minutes left, Adam Devine popped up with a fantastic winner to seal the three points with a rare strike from the full-back ending East Kilbride’s hopes of snatching a point.
There was a bit more late drama in the final minutes as Kilby went down to 10 men after Luke Kenny was dismissed for a dangerous challenge on the impressive Alex Lowry.
The win takes the young Gers into fifth place in the table, level on points with Spartans, and is a big result against one of the best teams in the division.
After losing their last outing, the Gers will be hoping the defeat by Bonnyrigg Rose was just a blip as they look to push up the table in their maiden Lowland League season.
