Rangers loanee scores playoff semi-final goal ahead of Ibrox exit

Rangers loanee Kyle Bradley, scored a crucial goal for his adopted side on Saturday.
The versatile 20-year-old opened the scoring in the tenth minute for Annan Athletic, away at Stenhousemuir.


In the second leg of the League Two play-off semi-final, it gave the Black and Golds a crucial cushion, having taken a 2-0 lead into the tie from their home leg.
The hosts were to pull one back before half-time, but Annan marshaled the game well. When Steven Swinglehurst put them 4-1 up on aggregate with less than 20 minutes remaining, their place in the final was safe.
That’s now six wins in a row and the in-form side will face Clyde to battle it out for promotion.
It’s a fixture which will carry personal significance for Bradley, who endured an unsuccessful loan spell with the opposition last season.

“I was really happy to contribute with a goal and it was a great feeling celebrating with the travelling fans”, said Bradley, as
quoted by the Annan Atheltic Twitter account.
“Hopefully, we will be able to take that momentum from Saturday into the final.”

It’s a strong end to the season for Bradley, who will most likely be looking for a new club in a few weeks time.
He tweeted last week suggesting that he will be released by Rangers at the end of his stint at Annan.


His effort against Stenhousemuir will have put him in the shop window, and hopefully, it won’t be too long before he finds himself a new, permanent home.
