Rangers U18s defeated rival club Aberdeen 3-1 at the Rangers Training Centre on Tuesday evening, with multiple exciting talents delivering in front of goal for the hosts.

After several disappointing recent results, coach Cameron Campbell named a strong starting XI for the clash which included B team regular Charlie Lindsay.

It didn’t take the former Glentoran starlet long to make his mark on proceedings, either.

In just the seventh minute, Lindsay slotted home a penalty to put the hosts 1-0 up after Robbie Ure had been fouled in the area.


However, the visitors didn’t simply lie down after falling behind.

Instead, they equalised through a penalty of their own in the 20th minute and the two sides were locked at 1-1 at the interval.

Rangers’ quality would ultimately shine through in the second period, though, with two relative newcomers to the club, Jack Roberts and Greig Allen, scoring in quick succession on either side of the hour mark to secure the points.

Attacker Roberts was officially brought in on a two-year deal last month, while defender Allen made the switch from Hearts in July.

This was a strong confidence-boosting win for the group but it will take some effort for last season’s league triumph to be repeated.

According to unofficial Twitter account rfcyouths.wordpress.com, the Young Gers are now sixth in the nine-team table with six points from their opening five matches.

Dundee United currently lead the way on 16 points but have played a game more.
