Rangers wonderkid Zak Lovelace continues to force his way into Michael Beale’s thinking with yet another goal for the Ibrox side’s B Team.
Zak Lovelace was one of four scorers in an impressive display by the young Gers in a 4-0 thrashing of Bo’ness United by the club’s B Team in the Lowland League.
Robbie Ure opened the scoring for Rangers before goals from Connor Allan and Zak Lovelace had the Gers 3-0 up by the half-time period.
Ross McCausland would then add a fourth in the second period with Rangers five points clear of Celtic B at the top of the Lowland League. Read the club’s official match report HERE.
But whilst there were four different scorers its the goal from Zak Lovelace, his 9th on Lowland League duties for Rangers B, that’s grabbed much of the attention.
Zak Lovelace knocking on Rangers door amid B Team form
The 16-year-old striker has already made his top team debut for the Gers, coming on as a substitute in the club’s 3-1 League Cup win over Queen of the South earlier in the campaign.
But after the appointment of Beale as the club’s new manager, the former Millwall striker was clipped being put through his paces in first-team training, raising hopes of greater involvement in the weeks and months ahead.
Despite Lovelace’s tender years he is both a person and player of maturer stature and it speaks volumes that the kid played in the top team at Millwall prior to his summer move to Ibrox.
Rangers reportedly held off interest from the likes of Spurs to sign Zak Lovelace and the striker has set about quickly following in the footsteps of Calvin Bassey and Joe Aribo at Ibrox.
Lovelace could be the last young English talent to go for big money at Ibrox and as his rise continues in the Rangers B team, the onus is on Michael Beale to turn him into that asset for the club.
But don’t just take our word for it.
