Rangers reserves boss Graeme Murty has admitted that he “couldn’t ask for much more” for the group of players at the Hong Kong Soccer Sevens as they prepare to play in the prestigious tournament later today.
Murty’s side will face three games today in the short-sided tournament and he believes that it is a fantastic experience for his young squad after their success at various youth levels domestically.
“There’s a few lads trying to get to grips with the format. We’ve got six new ones from the group who played here last year, so they’re getting used to it. They’re also getting used to the conditions, which are a challenge for them, but if they continue to perform and develop the way they have this season then they should have a really good tournament.”
The Gers reached the final last year only to lose out to Newcastle United and after such a strong season domestically, the young squad will be hoping to go one step further this year.
A number of Premier League sides are also taking part in this year’s competition with Newcastle, West Ham, Brighton and Leicester among those participating.
