Rangers fans left drooling after Gers kid's assists in U21 win

Rangers right-back Nathan Patterson created the first goal in Scotland under-21s win over the Czech Republic at Tynecastle yesterday – and Gers fans were left drooling over the defender’s talent after a scintillating bit of play to set up Fraser Hornby for the opener.

Patterson was first to react to a Czech throw in in the middle of the park, picking up the ball and laying the ball on to Hornby before a quick one-two in the box between the pair let Hornby get a lovely shot away which the keeper couldn’t get near.

Patterson has been on the fringes of Steven Gerrard’s first-team at Ibrox this season and fans are excited to watch him develop into a regular member of the starting XI.

Despite playing his club football at right-back, Patterson has been used in a more advanced role at times for Scotland and it worked to great effect in the capital last night as he helped the Scots take the lead.

Biggest STAR Your Club Are Trying To SIGN This Month

Ross McCrorie would grab a second to leave Scot Gemmill’s side a point off the Czechs with a game in hand against San Marino and the final rounds of fixtures to be played next month.

Scotland finish their group campaign next month with games against Croatia and Greece, who are both a point behind Scotland and play each other next week – with the Dark Blues facing San Marino next week.

Fans were delighted to see the impact Patterson made for the 21s last night – with one supporter suggesting he will be Rangers and Scotland’s right-back for the next decade.
