Zak Lovelace was already a name on the lips of many Rangers fans before the B Team kicked off their Lowland League campaign this weekend.
But after the young Bears kicked off their season against the Cumbernauld Colts the young Englishman is very much the talk of Ibrox Park.
Football fans have a penchant for getting carried away when it comes to young talents but as far as this particular young wonderkid goes, excitement continues to grow.
This was even more evident as Zak Lovelace produced a stunning finish in a 6-3 victory away in Cumbernauld that has caught the eye of supporters.
Rangers fans left purring by Zak Lovelace B Team goal
One of six scorers, Lovelace’s strike is the one which is garnering attention online as fans are left purring by the instinctual finish that caught the Cumbernauld keeper cold.
The ex-Millwall striker takes the ball on his thigh before controlling it into the far corner and adding to his burgeoning reputation.
The attention of Rangers fans will be firmly on the first team but there can be no doubt that Zak Lovelace is grabbing attention despite the fact he is only 16.
If the striker – who made his debut with Millwall as a 15-year-old – was a few years older perhaps the calls for a first-team spot would be louder but there’s no doubt Lovelace is on the right track.
Rangers fans have been blessed with a few youngsters coming through to the first team recently, and perhaps Zak Lovelace can follow Nathan Patterson, Alex Lowry and Leon King into the first team.
But there’s something a little different about the powerful forward who already looks to be beyond his years with Rangers supporters everywhere already keeping a keen eye on the striker’s progress.
Speaking of Zak Lovelace and Millwall, Gary Rowett failed to learn from an English managerial counterpart as he bemoaned the transfer.
