Former Ibrox youngster Charlie Telfer has hailed ‘next level’ Rangers after Sunday’s League Cup win over Falkirk – and the Bairns star admitted that he “learned so much” coming up against the likes of Scott Arfield.

Telfer impressed against his old side but was powerless to stop the Gers doing what they’ve done to much stronger sides already this season, and lauded Falkirk management duo Lee Miller and David McCracken for sticking to their guns and trying to take the game to Rangers.

The League One side face Peterhead this weekend as they return to league action and there were plenty of positives for them to take away from the game, despite the 4-0 scoreline.

“It’s obviously disappointing because we got beat 4-0,” Telfer told Not The Old Firm at the final whistle.

“But I think at times we did alright. We tried to get on the ball, tried to play. We made a few mistakes for the goals but I think we gave a good account of ourselves overall.


“I think Lee and Cracks said before the game that we aren’t just going to sit in and be ultra-defensive because eventually they will pick you off and you’re chasing the result. It gave us a platform to wait for moments to go.

“Then we had to take our chances or find that pass to break them down. It didn’t come off on the night.. We’ve said after the game, we have learned so much from it.

“Me personally, I have learned so much. They are bringing on young boys and they are going straight into a system and following the same movements. It’s just that next level.”
