Exciting young striker Robbie Ure scored his fifth goal in three days as Rangers B hammered University of Stirling 5-0.

Ure netted a first-half hat-trick on Sunday afternoon as the U18s thrashed Morton 8-1 at the Rangers Training Centre and he returned to the B team fold on Tuesday evening.

David McCallum named a strong looking starting XI at the Dumbarton Stadium, although Tony Weston, who netted a hat-trick in a 9-1 win over Gretna 2008 on Saturday, wasn’t involved.

It didn’t take the Young Gers long to stamp their authority on the fixture, with former Man United starlet Charlie McCann firing home from the edge of the area inside the first minute.

There was an injury stoppage in the 20th minute and striker Chris McKee was eventually deemed unable to continue.

It’s a blow for the Northern Ireland youth international, who had only recently returned to the fold, but his exit provided an opportunity to Ure, who came off the bench and scored almost immediately.

Alex Lowry then netted a third just prior to the interval, ensuring the Gers were utterly in control of the contest at the halfway point.

Former Glentoran wonderkid Charlie Lindsay added to the advantage shortly after the break and Ure rounded things off with his second in the final minute, placing an excellent finish in off the post.

This latest emphatic victory has moved the Young Gers to the top of the Lowland League table, above Dalbeattie Star on goal difference [slfl.co.uk].

There are a host of impressive young strikers at the club including Weston, McKee, Rory Wilson and James Graham, but Ure is the standout performer right now and his returns are made even more impressive by the fact that he’s still only 17.

He’s certainly a player to watch over the coming months, as the U18s and B team look to build on their strong starts to the season.

Meanwhile, plenty of Rangers fans are calling on Steven Gerrard to drop a key player for an exciting 21-year-old vs Alashkert.
