Rangers loanee Kyle Bradley is one game away from promotion with Annan Athletic.

His adopted side triumphed 1-0 over Clyde in the first leg of the SPFL League One play-off.

Bradley, has become a regular fixture in the Annan side this season. He played the full 90 minutes and picked up a booking in the Galabank triumph.

The winning goal came from winger, Chris Johnston. He latched onto a long throw and swept home a finish in the 22nd minute. The result represents a bit of a shock, as Clyde finished comfortably ahead of Annan during the regular League Two season.

“We’ve presented ourselves with a good opportunity but that’s all it is”, Annan boss Peter Murphy told BBC Sport. “We’ll go up to Clyde and it’s going to be a hostile atmosphere. It’s going to be very exciting.”

This is a very positive development for 20-year-old Bradley.

It hasn’t yet been confirmed by the club, but it looks as though the versatile youngster, will leave Ibrox at the end of the season.


He recently posted a farewell message on Twitter which drew many supportive responses from Bears.

He’s certainly putting himself in the shop window with recent performances, though.

A goal in the play-off semi-final may have alerted potential suitors, while if he plays a big role in a successful promotion push, Annan themselves will surely consider a permanent move.

For now, the focus will be on the final 90 minutes of the season.

The second leg, at Broadwood, kicks off at 3 pm on Saturday.
