Earlier this week, a Rangers Development side defeated Cambridge United 2-0.
There was a goal in each half with Andy Dallas opening the scoring and Jamie Barjonas securing the victory with a strike from range.

There was an element of mystery surrounding the Gers team, though.
That’s because three unnamed trialists were introduced as second-half substitutes. However, it appears that the identity of one of those players has now been confirmed.
On Thursday morning, the Daily Record ‘revealed’ that Max Hutchison, son of former Scotland international Don, was a Rangers trialist.
That report looks to have been corroborated by Hutchinson senior himself. The former Premier League midfielder tweeted a link to an Instagram post on Wednesday, accompanied by the caption ‘What a beautiful sight!! My eldest Maxhutch1010 in the colours of Rangers FC.’

Spateston Bear, who operates an unofficial Rangers Youth Updates account, replied confirming Hutchinson’s son was involved in the fixture.
However, the image itself has since been deleted. It’s likely that he was asked to remove the post in an attempt to keep the identity of the Rangers trialist under wraps.
It’ll be interesting to see if any of the three hopefuls are offered deals with the club. Given the sheer number of players the Gers have on their books, all three must have something about them to have got this far.
Meanwhile, a player who has recently left Ibrox for a loan spell helped his adopted side secure three points on his first competitive start.
