Rangers U18s downed Hibernian in a five-goal thriller in Edinburgh on Friday as the age group side’s impressive form continues [Rangers Youth Academy Twitter].
It’s been a heavily disrupted season for all youth footballers, but the young Gers appear to have taken things in their stride and are thriving under the coaching team of Cameron Campbell and David McCallum.
Since their delayed league campaign kicked off last month, they have defeated Kilmarnock, Dundee United, Hearts, Aberdeen and now Hibs, with a 3-3 draw with Celtic their only slip-up.
The U18s have had no problem scoring goals, with attackers Charlie Lindsay and Tony Weston stepping up in recent games.
Two other exciting talents delivered in the capital on Friday night, though, with Ross McCausland netting a brace and Alex Lowry also finding the net in the first half.
The Gers led 3-1 at the interval and although they didn’t add to their tally after the break, they still came away with a 3-2 victory.

McCausland will no doubt be delighted to have contributed a match-winning brace, as the Northern Ireland youth international’s stock continues to rise.
The 17-year-old, who signed his first professional contract back in September 2019, impressed at B team level during the early part of the season.
He’s a candidate to head out of the club for a first senior loan spell next season, although he could stay at Auchenhowie if the Gers are successful with their Lowland League Colts plans.
In other news, Rangers are reportedly interested in a £1.5m player described by a teammate as ‘unbelievable’.
