Rangers B downed SPFL League Two club Cowdenbeath 2-1 on Tuesday night in their first fixture of 2022.

There was disappointment at the weekend when the Young Gers’ first Lowland League fixture of the year against Dalbeattie Star was postponed following poor weather.

However, David McCallum’s side didn’t have to wait long for their next opportunity, with The Blue Brazil travelling to the Rangers Training Centre just a few days later.

A strong-looking starting XI was named, with Kai Kennedy and Jake Hastie both included following their returns from disappointing loan spells at Dunfermline Athletic and Partick Thistle respectively.

There were some noticeable absentees from the squad, though, with the likes of Ross McCausland and Cole McKinnon missing out, while Leon King is no longer available for selection after being promoted to the first team.

Rangers B defeat SPFL opposition

Rangers started well and were 2-0 up by interval.

Exciting 18-year-old attacking midfielder Alex Lowry and 17-year-old striker Robbie Ure scored the goals.

Ure, in particular, was in strong form prior to the turn of the year, scoring for the Gers U18s in wins over Hearts and Motherwell and it’s good to see him contributing at B-team level.

There were no further goals from the hosts in the second half and Cowdenbeath pulled one back, but McCallum’s side held on to start 2022 on a positive note.

Meanwhile, a former Rangers player has admitted that he wants to manage the club one day.
