It was a near-perfect day for Rangers in the Scottish Premiership, as they hammered previously third-placed Aberdeen 5-0 after Celtic had earlier dropped points at Easter Road.

Away from first-team activities, though, two bright prospects currently out on loan will be satisfied with their day’s work, too.

Two Rangers loanee score on successful Saturday

Firstly, the 2018/19 Reserve team skipper, Cammy Palmer, netted his first competitive goal for Partick Thistle.

The 19-year-old has endured a tough start to the season with the Jags, but they started Ian McCall’s league tenure with a vital win away at Inverness.

The scores were locked at 1-1 at half-time before former Ibrox marksman Kenny Miller put Thistle in front. Things were then shaping up for a nervy finish before Palmer found the bottom right corner with eight minutes remaining

Elsewhere in the league, Stephen Kelly produced again for Ayr United.

The Honest Men are without a permanent manager following McCall’s decision to head to Firhill, but they showed no sign of it in their 3-0 away victory over Arbroath.

Kelly put his side 3-0 up in the 27th minute, with his fourth of the season [Soccerbase]. It wasn’t as spectacular as some of his other efforts, but it killed off the game for the visitors.

The three points ensure Ayr remain locked with Dundee United at the top of the table, with both sides on 18 points.
