The Rangers youth side triumphed in a Scottish FA Youth Cup against their rivals Celtic in an enthralling 3-2 win over their Glasgow rivals.

Ciaran Dickson, Dapo Mebude and Nathan Young-Coombes were on the scoresheet for the Gers in an impressive performance.

But things could’ve been different had a late Celtic leveller been allowed to stand. And this image extinguishes any doubt over the decision.

The trophy win really sums up what’s been a fantastic season for the young Gers, with the group also closing in on the title.

Many of those who played last night were also part of the ALKASS Cup win in Qatar earlier in the season.

The stand out performer on the day was young Josh McPake. The exciting forward was a constant thorn in Celtic’s side and his performance earned the acclaim of supporters.

Should Celtic’s late leveller have stood, it wouldn’t have just been a refereeing injustice. Rangers dominated the game over the piece and were more than worthy winners of the Scottish FA Youth Cup.

The future certainly looks very bright at Ibrox and there’s real hope that a handful of these youngsters can become established players at Ibrox.

And if they do could the club follow the lead of another European giant in developing a golden generation of talented youngsters?
