Exciting Ibrox prospect Alex Lowry bagged a brace as Rangers B came from behind twice to snatch a draw with Caledonian Braves in the Lowland League.

David McCallum named a slightly different looking team than we’re accustomed to seeing for the 3pm kick off at Alliance Park on Saturday afternoon.

Leon King wasn’t involved after recently making a permanent move up to the senior squad, while three players who have been training with the first team recently – Adam Devine, Robbie Fraser and Charlie McCann – all missed out on the XI, with Devine not even in the matchday squad.

Midfielder Cole McKinnon and top goalscorer Tony Weston were also absent.

Understrength Rangers B draw with Braves

Arron Lyall was lively in the first half and Kyle McClelland missed a chance from a corner but there were few clear openings and the half-time whistle went with the teams locked at 0-0.

There was a lot more action in the second half, though, and the Braves took the lead in the first minute after the restart through Luke Main.

The hosts then had a goal ruled out for offside before attacking midfielder Lowry equalised on the hour mark with an excellent strike.

Kane Ritche-Hosler, playing right-back in place of Adam Devine, then created a good opportunity for Robbie Ure but the in-form striker narrowly missed the target.

The Braves took the lead again in the 80th minute and looked to be closing in on a shock victory until the Young Gers were awarded a penalty in the final minute of normal time and Lowry tucked it away to earn his side a point.

Meanwhile, a Rangers loanee has explained the role a Man United legend played in his Ibrox exit.
