Rangers academy prospect Andrew Dallas continues to impress for the development side and could yet stake a claim for a starting berth against Aberdeen.

The 19-year-old scored as Rangers ran out 2-1 winners against Championship side Morton on Thursday.

It was another impressive victory for the young Rangers. Dallas looks sharp and is finding the net regularly for the young side. Dallas scored a hattrick just 10 days ago in a 5-0 rout against Hamburg’s youth side.

He certainly looks like he’s on the verge of breaking through, but is he ready for the Aberdeen match?

Big game to make a big impression

Andrew Dallas has already made a huge impression on the youth side, but this game could be his chance to do so for the first team.

 

One thing he will offer you is goals and a match sharpness other options don’t have.

With Alfredo Morelos suspended and Kyle Lafferty cup-tied, it’s pretty up in the air who will start this huge match. Eros Grezda is an option – he played up front for Albania this week. Glenn Middleton, who’s a superb finisher, could play up there. Umar Sadiq could yet overcome the issues he’s been having convincing Gerrard to yet make the squad.

But Gerrard may want someone who’s fit, a natural goalscorer and who is desperate for a chance.

Andy Dallas ticks all those boxes.

Could he come into the fold for the Aberdeen match? With the form he’s on, he’ll certainly be in the discussion.
