Rangers reserves defender Danny Finlayson has admitted the Gers youngsters “should have been better” in yesterday’s 1-1 Reserve League draw with Dunfermline.

Graeme Murty’s side fell behind to Callum Smith’s goal before Joao Balde brought Rangers back level after Dapo Mebude set him up.

Finlayson thinks the Gers were the better side but didn’t do enough to kill the game off and paid the price for it as they dropped two points.

“It’s disappointing for the boys,” Finlayson told Rangers’ official website.

“We felt we did enough to win the game. We never took our chances and we should’ve been better today. That’s what we were saying after the game there [that Rangers looked the team likely to win it].
“We had our chances and didn’t take them. That’s what we need to do at places like this, you need to come and punish your opponent but that’s something we didn’t do.”

The Gers remain a point clear at the top of the Reserve League but had a much younger side in Kelty than in recent weeks.
With no first-team players involved, Murty’s side had a number of players from the younger age groups making the step up.
The young Gers now have almost three weeks to wait until their next league game when they travel to Lesser Hampden to face Partick Thistle on March 11th.
