Rangers loanee Zak Rudden has nabbed yet another goal for Falkirk in the Scottish Championship.
The talented 19-year-old equalised for the home side at the Falkirk Stadium just a minute into the restart. It is Rudden’s eleventh goal for Falkirk this season.
But the Rangers youngster’s strike wasn’t enough for the struggling side. They fell to a 2-1 defeat to fellow strugglers Alloa Atheltic, leaving them 9th place in the table.

Away from club football, Rudden also recently bagged himself a hattrick for the Scotland U19s.
They’ve also played a game more than bottom placed Alloa, who are now level on points with the Bairns.
Rudden’s side are now looking at the very real prospect of relegation in Scottish League One. Despite that, it’s been a promising loan spell for the young Rangers striker.
His performances led Falkirk boss Ray McKinnon to compare the striker to Rangers legend Ally McCoist [originally Scottish Sun].
He was then praised by Rangers manager Steven Gerrard. The Gers boss told Rangers TV he very much saw a future for the player at Ibrox.
Rudden himself said those comments left him “speechless” [originally Capital City Press].
The Rangers loanee scoring might’ve done little to ease Falkirk’s Championship woes.
But it’ll do plenty to enhance his burgeoning reputation in Scottish football.
